Famous Blueberry Pancakes
These are some of the best pancakes in the history of the world. Alas, I cannot take credit for them. They are Cookie Monster's Famous Blueberry Pancakes. There's no fancy cooking method or complicated ingredients; he uses boxed whole wheat baking mix. Then he throws in frozen blueberries and cooks them over a low heat so they fluff up nicely. While they're cooking, he makes a blueberry compote with more frozen blueberries, sugar and I think some water. It reduces into a lovely blue sauce that is incredible on the pancakes. They come out slightly crispy on the outside, perfectly cooked on the inside with warm blueberry-ness in each bite. Just a touch of butter (at our house we call Earth Balance butter) and it's breakfast heaven.
I'm having a Homer Simpson moment here. Aaaggghhhh.
