My All American Pancakes

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Today I bring to you my All American Pancakes.

I had this grand idea of making these pancakes, and I did make them, but they turned out awful!  They were over mixed, ran short on batter and were just a total flop!  I was so disappointed!!  But they do look cool don’t they?

On my second batch of pancakes I scrapped the idea of food coloring and yogurt.  I used to much yogurt and the flavor of the pancakes were not good!!  Like I said, I way over mixed them!  I could use them for a frisbee!  I also decided to use whip cream for my middle layer instead of yogurt!   Much better choice if I do say so myself.

I decided to make a Blueberry Quick jam for the topping.  All I did was take two bags (6 cups) of frozen blueberries, lemon juice and some stevia and cooked it up in a skillet.  I do love my quick jams.  It will go great on yogurt, ice cream and oatmeal.  Oh and pancakes of course!

This batch of pancakes turned out light and fluffy!  I used my spelt pancake mix, since I was out of whole wheat pastry flour.  The spelt gives it pretty speckles.  I also decided to go with old fashion maple syrup for my topping, since it’s been a while since I have had it.  Maple Syrup and pancakes are make a wonderful companionship!  Just don’t take the time to take pictures of it, the whip cream will disappear to quickly!

Here is the recipe for the Blueberry Quick Jam:


In a large skillet add blueberries, lemon juice and stevia.

Cook blueberries, stirring constantly until thick. About 15 -20 minutes.

Place blueberries in a jar and let it sit on your counter until cool.

Store in the refrigerator.

Making this batch of pancakes I used a scant 1/4 cup of batter.  I did run short and ended up with 5 pancakes.  If your going to make this for more than two people I recommend doubling the batter.  Since it was only me eating them, I kept it with 5.  I’ll take the other two to work tomorrow and have it for breakfast.

Glad today is the last day of work!!  I decided to take off Thursday, so I can have two days in a row.  It kind of stinks that the fourth of July falls on a Wednesday.  It’s hard to see the firework show and get up for work the next morning.  Do you have Thursday off?  Any big plans for the 4th?

Have a great day!
