Homemade Blueberry Pancakes

My 93 year young Mom is a bit particular about what she eats but homemade blueberry pancakes are a hit! I use whole grain flour with some unbleached flour to make the pancakes a bit lighter and easier to eat. I mixed a handful of fresh blueberries into the batter at the last moment while cooking the pancakes. At age 93 years, one rarely gobbles anything but the blueberry pancakes disappeared as I had hoped.

Cooked berries appear to be easier for the elderly to consume. I put them in at the last minute and watch them swell while cooking, some burst to release the wonderful color and aroma into the cooking pancake.

I grow blueberries in my garden. One needs to plant different varieties to get berries. I have three blueberry varieties growing in my yard that produce a couple handfuls of berries each year. Once ripe, I pick them quickly.
