Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario has bears. And it has wild blueberries. Enough for the bears and campers to share if you don't mind picking while keeping an eye out for the bears.
Obviously they get first pick!
So for our latest camping trip we packed some of our favourite mix..Healthy Pancake Mix but you can use any pancake mix you like.
Make the batter and heat up your griddle. Even with our non-stick pan we still add a little butter. Pour the batter into the hot pan and wait to see bubbles start to break the surface of the batter. Make sure you can loosen the bottom from the pan. Sprinkle blueberries over the top then carefully flip the pancake. Only 1 or 2 more minutes of cooking is needed as it was mostly cooked through before flipping. The heat brings out the flavour in the berries.
Adding blueberries directly to the batter could give you soggy pancakes, but cooking them this way ensures a well cooked pancake full of juicy blueberries!
Serve with maple syrup.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
