March 27, 2013


2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
? cup sugar
? cup water

1½ cups sifted flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. Royal Baking Powder*
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp. melted butter
2 cups sour milk or buttermilk

INSTRUCTIONS1. Make the sauce: Place the berries, sugar, and water into a quarter saucepan. Set the pan over a medium flame and bring to a boil. Turn the flame down, leaving the berries a a quiet, rather gentle boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Put sauce aside and reheat just before serving.

2. Sift flour, salt, soda, and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add beaten egg and melted butter. Mix well by stirring. Add milk and stir well.

3. Pour on sizzling-hot greased griddle. When the cakes become quite puffed and show tiny bubbles, turn and cook a few minutes more. Serve with stewed blueberries and maple syrup.

*Royal Baking Powder is no longer available, to replicate: mix 2 parts cream of tartar with 1 part baking soda. Get the recipe >>
