Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes


blueberry.cornmeal.pancakesI’m always looking for something simple, special, and nutritious to start the day for my family. Pancakes are always a favorite and these bump up the whole grain intake and add blueberries for a tart sweetness – also a good antioxidant.

Based on the recipe in the cooking bible that is The Joy of Cooking, a few small adjustments make these a full FTY event. On the plate above you’ll see Jack’s cornmeal and whole wheat flour (you could also use his butter), Eric’s eggs, Adam’s berries, honey from Chas, and a splash of milk from Earl and Amy.

Blueberry Cornmeal Butter Cake


Turning on the on the oven offers the tiniest bit of comfort. This breakfast cake comes from Deb Perelman’s newly published cookbook Smitten Kitchen.  Her blog of the same name is a terrific site and worth a visit if you’ve never been.  I’ve only slightly adjusted the recipe by adding more lemon zest (because I like it) and subbing Butterworks Maple Yogurt for sour cream.  Deb offers specific instructions about the streusel topping and still mine turned out a bit dusty rather than streusel-y.
