2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
zest 1 large lemon or orange
3 cups buttermilk
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Tip: At Fairholme, we mix in a dash of cinnamon with our powdered sugar for added flavour.
Preheat griddle or skillet on medium heat.
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in a bowl. Stir until thoroughly mixed and make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, lemon or orange zest, buttermilk and melted butter. Pour mixture into centre of well and gently fold together. The batter should have a pebbly or slightly lumpy consistency.
Coat the griddle with vegetable oil. Pour about ½ cup of batter onto the heated griddle, about 2’’ apart. Scatter 8 to 10 blueberries on top of each pancake. When bubbles begin to appear on top, carefully flip over each pancake and continue to cook until golden brown.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm with maple syrup and butter.
