Pancakes are a great way to begin the day, but pancakes with fun additions dotted throughout like blueberries are even better, promising more happiness throughout the day.
Pancakes are a quick breakfast that can be made by anyone, regardless of kitchen space or cooking skills, and blueberries are a classic addition to pancakes for a reason. They are not too sweet yet provide a comforting flavor to each bite of your morning pick-me-up.
That’s why January 28th is National Blueberry Pancake Day. To celebrate, simply make a tall stack of blueberry pancakes.
There are plenty of pancake recipes to choose from for the day. Look for inspiration to take your pancakes to the next level. Instead of tossing berries in your batter for Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes or Blueberry Speckled Pancakes and stopping there, create interesting variations like blueberry syrup or a pancake full of blueberries and raspberries. Or have a full blueberry breakfast, adding blueberries to your morning smoothie, muffins, oats, and more. Remember, blueberries are one of the few foods naturally blue in color—and the pigment that makes it blue, anthocyanin, is also used in natural dyes. To prevent your pancakes from turning blue and turning off some skeptical family members, drop the blueberries into the batter as it cooks in the pan.
The food holiday is a fun excuse to experiment with your breakfast foods—and enjoy them all day, too! Breakfast doesn’t have to end once you are awake for the day. Bring the joy of blueberry pancakes to the rest of your day with blueberry pancakes for dinner. Invite friends together to show off their pancake-making skills, attempting a successful pancake flip or an unusual pancake shape. As stated at the beginning of this blog, blueberry pancakes promise happiness throughout the day, and a pancake party is an amusing way to do this.
