    Best pancakes ever  -  11 Mar 2018


    I love pancakes and blueberries so this was the perfect match for me!  -  20 Apr 2016


    These really are great, tender pancakes. I have made them several times and I feel it is necessary to mention that fresh blueberries are best, and that there is no need to wait the hour until making them! I have found that sprinkling the berries on the pancake after it is on the griddle works best and avoids smashing them. You can also use vegetable oil instead of the melted butter; it makes no difference, especially if you butter them afterwards anyway!  -  21 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
