If you're looking for something to do today then don't skip breakfast because it's National Blueberry Pancake Day!  Add a sweet shade of blue to your pancakes!  Let's get right into celebrating National Blueberry Pancake Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Pancakes are one of the most common breakfast meals but when you think of extras added to your pancakes what do you think of first? Probably chocolate chips and blueberries, right? Blueberry pancakes are so common and well-loved that you just have to celebrate them!  I mean there is a restaurant called the International House of Pancakes (or IHOP), what more proof do you need than that?  Pancakes are eaten all around the world and are sometimes known by a different name. The French call them crepes, in the Scotland they're known as scones, in India they're known as pooda, in Australian they're known as pikelets, in Hungary they're known as palacsinta, in Russia they're called blini and poffertjes are a Dutch dish that is very similar to pancakes.

To make pancakes you mix up a batter of baking powder, eggs, flour and milk and then pour it onto a hot frying pan or griddle. You wait until the batter starts bubbling and then you flip it and cook the other side. But for today you'll want to either mix the blueberries right in the batter or sprinkle them on each pancake right after you pour a little batter into your pan.  By adding blueberries to your pancakes you get more than a hint of extra sweetness in each bite. You'll be getting a good dose of antioxidants, vitamin C and you'll be helping your digestion out.  Then the pancakes are usually topped with a slice of butter and drizzled with syrup before biting into them. Who said cake isn't for breakfast? ;)

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So how can you celebrate today?  It's actually pretty simple, if you have an International House of Pancakes near you then you can go there and have them make you some blueberry pancakes. If you don't have an IHOP near you then I'm sure other restaurants are open to making you a nice stack of these pancakes.  Some places will even have blueberry syrup you can drizzle over your pancakes to really celebrate to the fullest.  Just be careful with that syrup, blueberries make quite a nice dye.
 
Or you could always make them yourself! Mix up some batter and have some blueberries on hand to sprinkle on top of each and every pancake. Since blueberries most likely aren't in season for you, given the time of year, you can always get frozen blueberries and thaw them out before you start cooking.  If you don't thaw them out you'll have quite the contrast of temperatures when you bite into your pancake.   I'm sure your family or roommates would love waking up to the smell of blueberry pancakes. It's quite a good way to start off your day and hopefully get out of having to do the dishes!  I hope you have an amazing day and enjoy your sweet-tasting blueberry pancakes!
