Another fresh start in the cooking world

Shout out to all the parents and married folks out there who love to cook! Yay! I love to cook but not with a one year old strapped to my leg, so I cook during his naps! Today I made Blueberry Pancakes! I made one to try since, I'm new to homemade cooking. The rest I stuck in the freezer for another day. Here is the recipe I used, it's very delicious!

2 cups all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups buttermilk

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 cup fresh blueberries
Unsalted butter to cook the pancakes

1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

2. In another bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk and melted unsalted butter and mix well.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently, preferably with a spatula, just until the ingredients are all wet. The batter should be lumpy. Do not over mix!

4. In a pan, melt 1 or 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Ladle the batter into the pan 1/3 of a cup at a time. Depending on the size of your pan you can make 2 or 3 pancakes at a time. If you want smaller pancakes use less batter.

5. Sprinkle the blueberries over the pancakes and cook until bubbles appear along the edges and surface of the pancakes. The edges will begin to brown slightly (should take 2 or 3 minutes).

6. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 2 or 3 minutes.

7. Serve the pancakes with butter and maple syrup.

8. Enjoy!
