Blueberry Pancakes

The world's best blueberries are in season in NJ! Emery's Berry Patch in New Egypt is a great place to pick delicious, organic blueberries. For other blueberry farms in NJ:

This is my family's favorite blueberry pancake recipe. Light, delicious, golden and bursting with berries. In season, fresh NJ blueberries make them perfect - Oh my!

  1. Great recipe! Adding a little bit of sugar (or even maple syrup) to the batter makes such delicious pancakes!

  2. When I go out for breakfast with friends or family, I order pancakes 99% of the time. I love how your egg whites are whipped. It's a 'must try'.

    Do you hear the printer printing?

    Thanks for the tidbits of info too. I didn't know blueberries was the state fruit. I do know it is extremely a health benefit to eat these berries.
