Did you know that today is National Blueberry Pancake Day? It sure is, so we whipped up a batch of our favorite Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes, added Blueberries, my favorite and made a delicious Blueberry Syrup to pour over top!
This delicious Blueberry Syrup starts with fresh blueberries and sugar, but the addition of Meyer Lemon Juice makes it taste unlike any store bought syrup. Food & Wine calls it the Perfect Blueberry Syrup…and I definitely agree!
The Blueberry Pancakes are light and fluffy and the fresh blueberries pop when you eat them. According to Driscoll’s, when choosing blueberries, look for Berries that are dry, plump, round and free of dents and bruises. Blueberries should have a soft, hazy white coating, which is called “bloom.” Bloom is a completely natural part of the berries’ defense mechanism and helps protect them from the harsh rays of the sun. Avoid blueberries that are shriveled or lack bloom.
Did you know that with just 80 calories per cup and virtually no fat, blueberries offer many noteworthy nutritional benefits? And they are delicious too!
