Maman's Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

Wednesday at Whole Foods they were selling 2 lb boxes of blueberries. So I immediately grabbed one and started thinking of all the yummy exotic things I could make with them over the next few days.

But then Thursday I woke up with a craving for plain old blueberry pancakes. Nothing exotic or special using blueberries - no berry panna cotta, no blueberry tart - just simple breakfast pancakes, a delicious and a great way to start the day.

My mom has a killer yogurt pancake recipe (which we've made with everything from bananas and raspberries, to cranberries and apples, and tons of other yummy fruit combos), so I let her take over and cook me up a batch of these beauties.

I took care of squeezing the orange juice and stayed out of her way.

And since it's Saturday morning, a typical time for pancakes - I thought that maybe you'd like to whip some up for your loved ones this morning.

Or maybe just for yourself? No one's judging :)

Maman's Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2/3 stick of butter, melted
  • 1 banana, sliced in half lengthwise and cut into half-inch pieces
  • 1-2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Separate eggs, set aside egg whites.
  • In a small mixing bowl sift together dry ingredients (flours, baking soda, sugar, salt).
  • In a larger mixing bowl mix together wet ingredients (yogurt, egg yolks, melter butter, banana pieces).
  • Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into wet ingredients, making sure to mix any lumps.
  • Whip egg whites to stiff peaks.
  • Gently fold egg whites into pancake batter.
  • Stir in blueberries
  • Spoon batter onto hot griddle. When bubbles start to form on surface (after about a minute), flip, and cook another minute until golden brown.

  • Serve with maple syrup of fruit preserves.
  • Enjoy!

Enjoy your breakfast!


And remember Six Senses Saturday?

Well, it has certainly been a while since we've had one, hasn't it? Between non-working beach house internet and being away, my Saturdays haven't been so productive, blog-wise, but we're about to change that!

Today I'm...

Blueberries and yogurt

My cup of smoky Lapsang Souchong.

All the green in my garden.

An NPR program talking about people who think it would be a good idea to change the constitution to deny citizenship to children of illegal immigrants born on US soil.
I have no words.

My brand new iPhone!
I can't wait to learn to use it!
Any tips and tricks?
In Boston in mid-August? I know! Crazy!
