For years, I made these pancakes plain. Then my husband and I started growing blueberries. What a delicious addition! I often fix a fluffy stack for my family. It's hard to fill up our grandkids, so I'm glad this recipe makes a big batch.

"Batter was very thin. Will add more flour next time. Otherwise, great taste."
