Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes:
Makes 10 Pancakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for cooking
1 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest, from 1 lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh blueberries
Salted butter and warm maple syrup, for serving
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, lemon zest and vanilla extract until well incorporated.
Make a little well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour the liquid ingredients while stirring until just combined. It’s okay that it’s still lumpy. Do not over mix the batter! Otherwise the pancake will be chewy instead of tender and fluffy.
Heat 1 teaspoon of butter in a heavy non-stick griddle or any non-stick pan, over medium low heat. Wipe off excess with a paper towel. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbles appear on the edges. Sprinkle a few blueberries (about 6 to 8) onto the surface of each pancake. I usually cook 2 to 3 pancakes at a time, depending on the size of your pan.
Then, flip each pancake and cook until the other side is golden, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer the pancakes to the serving plate and continue to cook the remaining batter.
Serve with a little salted butter and warm maple syrup. They will be the most tender and fluffy pancakes you’ve ever eaten! Enjoy!
