At breakfast, add a few blueberries to your pancake, flapjack or hotcake. National Blueberry Pancake Day is observed January 28.
Saturday, January 28, 2017
The early pancakes consisted mostly of flour and milk and were more like biscuits. Later, eggs, milk, a leavening agent (such as baking powder) and fat were added creating the fluffier, lighter pancake we know today.
Adding blueberries to the pancake batter when mixing up the ingredients may result in a bluish hue. To avoid this, add them right after dropping dollops of batter to the hot griddle.
Blueberries add a freshness to pancakes and nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese and copper.
