Do you remember Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? The little girl whose grabby hands stuffed the meal-flavored gum in her mouth, and then turned into a big gigantic blueberry that was about to burst? Hahahhhahhaa! That was pure genius on Roald Dahl’s part. It happens to be one of my favorite parts in the book and film. I always imagine that’ll happen to me one day when I eat blueberry pancakes, because I’m like a stingy little hog when it comes to scarfing them down. I seriously can’t get enough. When I found out that September is National Breakfast Month, I knew I would have to make some, but to keep my stingy side under wraps, I decided to make them silver dollar size instead, just to show myself I’m not like Violet after all.
Ingredients for Silver Dollar Blueberry Pancakes:
- 1 1/2 – cups flour
- 2 – teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 – teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 – teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 – tablespoons sugar
- 2 – eggs
- 1 1/2 – cups buttermilk
- 1 – cup milk
- 3 1/2 – tablespoons unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
- 1/2 – teaspoon vanilla
- 1 – cup fresh blueberries
- In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Give it a good whisk.
- In a separate bowl combine eggs, buttermilk, milk, butter, and vanilla, then mix really well.
- Then add the flour mixture to the milk mixture. Mix together until combined, you don’t want your mixture to be perfectly smooth, you want to leave some lumps in there.
- In a large frying pan lightly brush with melted butter or mist with a non stick cooking spray and place over a medium flame. Allow pan to get hot then take a tablespoon of batter and pour into pan.
- The batter will spread slightly then top with a few blueberries.
- Cook for 5 minutes or until the batter starts to have little holes in it. Some will even pop.
- Another way to tell if your pancake is ready to be flipped: the edges will set and the center will be slightly set. Cook on the other side for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Remove from flame and spread butter on top and drizzle with syrup.
