Sunday Morning Pancakes

Mmm, fresh wild blueberries from Mosborough Market picked up yesterday while I was out all day with the dogs tracking. That can only mean one thing Sunday morning: pancakes. Delicious plain, but the pancakes taste best with fruit in or on them.


In a mixer or by hand whisk together:

2 eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

To this add the combined dry ingredients a little at a time until smooth and light. (I use my electric mixer with the wire whisk attachment to make them light and fluffy.)

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (the salt enhances the flavours, the pancakes are better when you don't omit it)

To this batter add blueberries, shredded apples or fruit of your choice. If adding frozen instead of fresh berries, toss them until coated in flour before adding to the batter. These pancakes stay warm for a surprisingly long time.

There's been spinning too. I haven't spun all of the natural undyed brown bfl yet, I was too eager to try some colour. This is Pigeonroof Studios "Greener Celadon" in bfl. I wish there was more of it. I haven't decided to ply it on itself from both ends of a wound cake (how I think it'll look bettter) or if I might spin some undyed white Falkland I have and ply it to that (there'd be more yardage).

I'm ~as in handsome hubby Don I hope ~ going to make a Niddy Noddy with the directions from Celeste at Nebula Designs to skein up my home spun. Oh geez, 'my homespun', hang on - I need second to savour that though... Ah. Thanks Celeste, I really appreciate the instructions and dimensions!

Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

Oh, I love blueberry pancakes. I so rarely think to make them. Maybe I will treat the girls tomorrow as it's bank holiday !

Did somebody say pancakes? Those look delicious, Renee. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I'm sure it won't be long before I give it a try.

I can't believe you have already produced your own yarn ~ that's amazing! Can't wait to see what you make with it!

Your pancake recipe looks delicious. We have some blueberries in the freezer and I think they will be finding there way into your pancakes next Sunday.

You are most welcome sweetie.

Oh...blueberries. If you are what you eat, as my hubby likes to remind me, I'd be round and blue. I just give the excuse that it keeps my eyes blue.

The handspun looks lovely. Excited to see what you decide to do with it.

I finally got to spend some quality time spinning this weekend. Made me think of you :)

hooray for bluberries -- and for handspun! your green celadon bfl looks lovely! can't wait to see what it looks like plied with the white falklands (if you decide to do that)! you could also ply the natural stuff with itself and do a stripey hat or cowl...!
