CL Comments: Blueberries, either fresh or frozen, give ordinary pancakes a big flavor boost, not to mention a healthy dose of antioxidants.
Amy's Comments: These were easy to make and WOW were they GOOD!! My guests gobbled them up. I used frozen blueberries bc the fresh were too $$. A definite keeper!

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. Combine buttermilk, milk, oil, and egg in a bowl, and add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
  2. Spoon 1/4 cup pancake batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, and top with 2 heaping tablespoons blueberries.
