Prepare your taste buds...

Here is the pancake recipe that I mentioned in a blog comment... I think maybe on Roses's blog? Can't remember where, but a few days ago, Mago reminded me that I was going to share the recipe, since I blathered on and on about how good these are!

So here it is:

Blueberry Pancakes with Orange Sauce


Mix in a bowl:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Whisk together in a measuring cup:
1 egg
3 tbsp oil
1 1/2 cups milk

Add the liquid to the dry ingredients. Mix lightly. Pour onto a hot griddle in batches. To the top of each pancake, sprinkle a few blueberries immediately after pouring batter on griddle. Cook as you would normally do pancakes, turning only once. If you choose to mix the blueberries into the batter before cooking, they will turn the batter rather purpley.

Orange Sauce:
(make ahead of time and let sit in the fridge ~ develops the flavour nicely)

1/2 lb cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup liquid honey
juice and zest of one orange

Beat cream cheese and honey with mixer at high speed until smooth and creamy. Mix in orange juice thoroughly. Then stir in orange zest with wooden spoon. Refrigerate. May be brought to room temp a bit before serving.

These chill and freeze well (the pancakes) and the sauce is even better the next day! When I was a kid, we'd spend 2 weeks every July camping. It was the job of the kids to go pick wild blueberries. My mum would have brought all the other ingredients and we'd feast on these in the summer morning's sun. Even just writing about these, I can taste and smell them. If you can find wild frozen blueberries at your store, or pick wild ones, those are the best for flavour.

If anyone tries these, let me know what you think!


  1. Sounds great hen, especially your slant on the Orange sauce. I'll be giving these a whirl this week.

  2. That sounds great...especially the hill and freeze part. My men don't seem too pancakey keen.

    Thank you for that, your recipe sounds straightforward and easy to follow.

    I'm so going to give that a go. Will post pictures and let you know how it turns out.

  3. The orange sauce sounds like an interesting twist! May be spending more time in the kitchen on this vacation. Started this morning out making "Monkey Bread"...yes, I cheated with the canned biscuits but baking it in a muffin pan makes it so much better!

  4. And thank you for linking to my new blog!

    Mwah! XxxxxxxxxX

  5. Haha - Klasse! Pfannkuchen mit Blaubeeren - und einer extravaganten Sauce!

    It's years since I had pancakes. Thank you for the recipe, will do this not in the next few days, but I will.
    And it's very nice to hear from you again.

  6. Yummity yumyum! That orange sauce sounds delicious! :¬)



So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
