you're looking for something to do today then don't skip breakfast
because it's National Blueberry Pancake Day! Add a sweet
blue to your pancakes! Let's get right into celebrating
Blueberry Pancake Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Pancakes are one of the most common breakfast meals but
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!
mean there is a restaurant called the International House of Pancakes
(or IHOP), what more proof do you need than that? Pancakes
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
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? ;)
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
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
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
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!
