Pancakes in Bed

May 3, 2019

As you know, Mother’s Day is fast approaching and what’s the best way for Mom to start her special day? I don’t know about you, but we’re a big sucker for breakfast in bed! Now, it can’t be a regular breakfast in bed. It’s has to be an extra special one, and we’re going to help you make it one by giving you the steps on how to make our famous Mrs. Biederhof’s Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes.

Are you ready? Ok, let’s get to it.

First off you’re going to need your ingredients:

  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 ¼ tsp of baking powder
  • ½ tsp of baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • ¼ cup of melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries
  • And some extra unsalted butter on hand to grease the skillet

Okay now let’s get cooking!

Step 1: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the buttermilk and melted butter.

Step 3: Using a spatula, combine the dry and wet ingredients to make a thick, lumpy batter, taking care not to overmix.

The real trick to these is in the mixing. If you overmix the batter, your pancakes won’t be moist and delicate.

Step 4: In a nonstick skillet, melt some butter over medium-high heat. Ladle ⅓ cup of batter into the hot skillet and sprinkle with blueberries. Take care not to overcrowd the skillet, since the pancakes will puff up as they cook.

Step 5: When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake and the edges begin to brown, flip the pancakes and cook the other side. It should take about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Keep them nice and warm for mom by keeping them in a 250ºF oven.

Step 6: Smother with maple syrup, fresh blueberries, dollop with whipped cream and maybe even a good dusting of icing sugar.

And that’s that! Add on a side of hugs and kisses and it will be a Mother’s Day she’ll always remember. Don’t forget to make an extra stack for yourself too!
