Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes Anyone???

Yummy!!! This is one of the very few times I dared to make my own homemade pancakes...
Rich doesn't even love pancakes...but he said that these ones were worth the wait!
This recipe is taken from my admirer at the moment, Bakerella. She took it from the June Issue of Martha Stewart Living.

Not only am I trying to bake as well as Bakerella does, but I am trying to make some of the recipes that she has made over the past few months and trying to take pictures from the same angles as she does.
Here is the recipe that I halved and tweaked a bit, to make just enough pancakes for two! I also do not own a griddle so I used a small frying pan. It took more time to make each one separately, but it worked out well!

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/8 cup sugar, plus 1 tsp for blueberries
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cream
1 egg
1 cup fresh blueberries
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. In another bowl, combine wet ingredients and whisk together. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. In a separate small bowl, toss blueberries in 1 tsp. of sugar.

Pour batter into frying pan, 1/4 cup at a time. At first, I added a small brick of butter, but after the first pancake it is not necessary to add any more butter. The pancakes turn out better as you continue to make each one! Add blueberries. Let cook for about 2-3 minutes. Flip onto other side for 1-2 minutes. Continue and enjoy!

Makes about 8 pancakes.


Since I used a small pan and only made one pancake at a time, I immediately put the finished pancakes in the oven to keep warm until the remaining pancakes were ready!

Tossed blueberries in sugar...yummy!

Add in blueberries as the first side of the pancake is cooking...when the pancake is filled with is ready to be flipped!

Here's what it looks like on the flip side!

Don't forget to add some maple syrup!

Who wants the last bite?
