Recipe Thursday - Blueberry Pancakes
I went to my fall back cookbook, 'Five Roses: A Guide to Good Cooking 25th edition". This is the book that I used when I was baking my wedding cake. Its rather falling apart now and I have been checking used book stores to find a copy of the same edition. There are at least 2 editions of this book currently available (1999, 2003).
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cup milk (soy milk works)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated lemon rind
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine beaten egg, milk, oil, and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour liquid all at once. Add blueberrs and lemon rind. Stir quickly until it comes freely from side of bowl. Drop in small amounts on hot panckae griddle or cook 4 at a time in an electric frying pan. Grease frying pan at the beginning only. Cook pancakes until they are filled with bubbles and the undersuface is golden brown. Turn and brown other side.
