Spicy Blueberry Morning


I remember having a lot of blueberry pancakes during my teenage years in California. The gals would meet up at IHOP on a Sunday mid-morning and order a bottomless pot of coffee, and huge stacks of these wonderful creations, toppled with blueberry compote and whipped cream!

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup blueberries

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a small bowl, beat together the remaining ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a few swift strokes, then fold in the blueberries. Heat the griddle with some oil or butter. Ladle the batter onto the griddle, and when bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, flip the pancake and cook until nicely browned on each side. Serve with whipped cream and blueberry compote or maple syrup. Yum!
