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.

  3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Sprinkle each pancake with about 1 tablespoon blueberries. Turn when bubbles form on top of pancake; cook until second side is golden brown. Serve with warm blueberry syrup. Yield: 6 servings.

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