I picked up some organic blueberries from the Lansing's Farm at the farmer's market last Saturday, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them — blueberry pancakes! These are the Blueberry Lemon Corn Pancakes from the Veganomicon:
Unfortunately, my first batch didn't turn out as well. I didn't even take a picture, as they were what Alice in Veganland recently described as "pancake scramble." Its because I didn't have non-stick pans, of course. So I bought some. Cheap ones, like dollar store ones. I'm sure they won't last long, and they'll likely chip pieces of toxic crap into my food. But I don't care. They were just a quick fix. I NEEDED pancakes!
These were really yummy, especially with a Julie Hasson sausage link. The combination of lemon zest and blueberries and corn meal was divine! My only complaint is that they really weren't very fluffy. I've noticed Isa and Terry's pancake recipes tend to create a pretty liquid-y batter, and that may be the culprit. Anyone have any thoughts on what keeps a pancake from being fluffy?
Speaking of berries, my friend Aaron just stopped by with two big ol' freezer bags full of blackberries! He picked them on his family's blackberry farm in Arkansas.
Yea! Now I can make blackberry muffins and maybe even blackberry jam ... berries (and tomatoes and flip-flops) are the best part of summer!
