Now we are home and Frank is making us his famous blueberry pancakes. Frank does not allow anyone else in the household to make pancakes and I have to admit that his are delicious. He will only use Aunt Jemima Original Pancake Mix and then he makes them according to the package directions except that he uses melted butter instead of oil. He also refuses to mix the blueberries into the batter but rather he puts the batter onto the griddle and very precisely adds the blueberries one by one so they don't get clumped together. Oh and always fresh, never frozen, blueberries because otherwise they run and color the batter. I LOVE him!!!
Breakfast is served and Mom is ready!
adapted from Aunt Jemima Original Pancake Mix
2 c. Aunt Jemima Original Pancake Mix
1 1/2 c. Milk
3 T. melted butter
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Heat griddle to 375*. Scoop approx. 1/3 c. batter onto the griddle. Continue in this manner until the griddle is full leaving approx. 1/2" between pancakes. Add 8-10 blueberries to each pancake and continue to cook until the pancake starts to dry around the edges and bubbles form on top. Check to assure the bottom is golden brown, flip the pancakes and continue to cook until second side is golden brown (2-3 minutes). Print Recipe
After brunch, I went down and walked on the treadmill because it was raining outside. When I was done and returned upstairs the sun had come out so I took advantage and spent a couple of hours relaxing in the pool with my book which I am sharing with you as our prompt for the Photo a Day Challenge was "What does relaxing look like to you?"
