The breakfast project


The other day we went out for breakfast at an eatery close by... We ordered the Blueberry crunch cakes... They were delicious... I found myself a recipe and tried to recreate them... They turned out good, I approve...

Blueberry Crunch Pancakes

3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon1/4cup melted butter or magarine
1 pint fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cup granola (You can use homemade, here is our recipe, keep it simple dough... You just want the crunch)

Mix all dry ingredients together. Add buttermilk and melted butter to dry ingredients. Allow batter to rest for at 10-15 minutes. Preheat griddle or large skillet on medium heat. Scooping up 1/8 of the batter for each pancake, add 2 or 3 pancakes at a time to the griddle or skillet. Top each pancake with 1/8 of the blueberries.When pancake begin to form bubbles that just start to pop around the edges, sprinkle a handful of the granola over top each pancake. Flip each pancake and cook until bottoms are golden brown (carefully lift up an edge of a pancake to check). DO NOT press down on pancakes with your spatula, as it will force out all the air bubbles and make pancakes flat and dense. Keep finished pancakes on a warmed plate while you cook remaining pancakes
