Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

As I've said before, we are big breakfast people, especially on the weekend. We love both savory and sweet dishes, in just depends on the mood. I don't think that we have a clear favorite, although an omelette is always on the top of my list.

When it comes to pancakes, we have our favorite buttermilk variety but for a change, I thought I'd try these blueberry cornmeal kind. I thought that they sounded interesting and they definitely were! The blueberries were delicious of course, adding a little sweetness and tartness to the batter. Adding the yolks and whites separately was not something that I've done before but it made the batter much lighter. Overall, though, the star was definitely the cornmeal! It was such a surprise to get that little bit of a crunch and then a slight corn taste, almost like cornbread but not quite. These are definitely all pancake but with a twist. :)

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes
adapted from Comfortable in the Kitchen by Meredith Laurence

1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. melted butter, cooled
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, plus 1 tbsp. flour
butter for greasing the pan or griddle

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together the egg yolks, milk, lemon juice, and butter in a separate bowl. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until fluffy and soft peaks form.
2. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Toss the blueberries with the tablespoon of flour and add into batter. Fold the egg whites carefully into the batter, do not over-mix.
3. Preheat a non stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Coat with butter and pour batter onto the surface. (Any size pancake is fine.)
4. Let cook until many bubbles form across the surface of the pancake and the flip to the other side. Cook until brown and keep warm in the oven. Continue until all pancakes are cooked. Serve hot.

First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask
if you do not mind. I was interested to know
how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
