Pancakes!

One of my favorite things in blogland is stumbling across amazingly talented chefs / photographers who share their amazing recipes.
Awhile back, I stumbled upon Satisfied.
Not only are Chef Louise's pictures absolutely beautiful, her recipes are super delicious (and shared so well that even I can make them and get close to the same beautiful, delicious results--however, photography skills are still deeply lacking!)

Here's the recipe taken right from Satisfied--she gets ALL the credit!
We've enjoyed several times lately.  So delicious...I can't quit craving them!



Blueberry Orange Cornmeal Pancakes

½ Pint fresh blueberries (1 Cup)
1 Cup unbleached all-purpose flour
Zest of 1 large orange
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons stone-ground cornmeal
½ Teaspoon salt
½ Teaspoon baking powder
¼ Teaspoon baking soda
¾ Cup buttermilk
¼ Cup milk +3-4 Additional Tablespoons to thin out
1 Large egg
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter – melted- cooled to warm
½ Teaspoon vanilla extract

In a small bowl toss blueberries in 2 teaspoons of flour

In a larger bowl mix together flour, zest, sugar, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda


In a Pyrex measuring cup whisk together milk, buttermilk, egg, cooled butter, and vanilla extract

Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients mixing with a spatula until just combined- add in extra milk to thin batter out if too thick- batter should be on the thinner side

Carefully fold in blueberries

Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium/high heat

Brush pan vegetable oil, butter, or cooking spray

Pour pancakes ¼ cup at a time

When bubbles appear in the top of the pancake and the bottoms are golden brown about 2-3 minutes , then flip
Continue cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes

Serve hot with butter and maple syrup
