Blueberry Pancakes 

  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • ½ teas salt 
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ¼ teas sugar 
  • 1 egg1 cup milk 
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted or vegetable oil
  • ½ cup blueberries 

Sift dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  In small bowl beat the egg and milk together.  Stir the milk and egg into the dry mixture and stir in the butter or vegetable oil.  Gently stir in the blueberries.  Allow batter to rest for about 45 minutes before cooking pancakes. 

To cook pancakes, spray a griddle or frying pan with cooking spray.  Heat the pan over medium heat.  When you think the pan is hot sprinkle a few drops of water on the pan.  If the water starts to dance on the pan it is ready to cook your pancakes. 

Use about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake.  Pour the batter onto the prepared pan and cook until the pancake is golden on each side.  It is time to flip over the pancake when you see bubbles form and pop around the edges of the pancake.  When the bubbles seem to be a little firm it is time to turn over the pancake. 

Blueberry Muffins 

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar 
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk 
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 teas baking powder 
  • ½ teas salt
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries 

Either line your muffin pan with cupcake paper liners or grease and flour the muffin pan.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs and beat after each egg.  Pour in the milk and again beat the mixture.  Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.   Add these dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and beat until everything is well mixed.  Stir in the blueberries. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full.  Bake in heated oven approximately 25 minutes.  A toothpick inserted into the muffin should come out clean when the muffin is done. 

Blueberry sauce is great over pancakes or waffles, or over ice cream.  You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries to make the sauce.  

Blueberry sauce 

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • ½ cup water 
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup sugar 
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ teas cinnamon 

In saucepan over medium combine the blueberries, orange juice, ¼ cup of the water and the sugar.  Bring mixture to a boil.  In a small bowl mix the other ¼ cup of water with the corn starch and stir until smooth.  Slowly add this cornstarch mixture to the blueberry mixture in the saucepan.  Be careful not to mash the blueberries. Reduce heat and simmer this mixture until it is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.  It should take 3-4 minutes.  Remove the blueberry sauce from the stove and stir in the cinnamon.  If sauce is too thick you can thin it with some water. 

Blueberry Rice Krispies treats 

  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 10oz package marshmallows 
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup dried blueberries 

Line a 9×13 pan with wax paper and spray with cooking spray.  Set pan aside. 

You want to combine the marshmallows and butter and you can do this either on the stove or in the microwave.  If using the stove combine the marshmallows and butter in a large pot and cook this mixture over medium low heat stirring constantly until the mixture has melted together.  Remove from heat. 

If you prefer to use the microwave place the butter and marshmallows in a large bowl and cook on high for 2 minutes.  Stir mixture and return to microwave and cook an additional 1 minute.  Remove from microwave, 

Stir Rice Krispies and dried blueberries into the marshmallow and butter mixture.  Spread mixture into the prepared pan and pat down the mixture until it is smooth. Cool and cut into 2-inch squares.
