Multigrain Pancakes with Wild Blueberry-Maple Syrup
I have wanted to make this recipe for over a year now. Almost everyday I would walk by my coffee table and see these pancakes on the cover of my February 2008 edition of bon appetit. I don't know why I waited so long to make these, but I won't wait very long before I make them again.
1 (8 oz) container of organic maple syrup (I found this at Trader Joe's)
1 cup frozen organic wild main blueberries (I found these at Trader Joe's)
2 cups multigrain baking and pancake mix (you guessed it - Trader Joe's)
2 cups buttermilk
6 tablespoons wheat germ
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1) Boil syrup and blueberries in a heavy saucepan until reduced to 1 cup (about 13 minutes). Cool to lukewarm.
2) Combine pancake mix, buttermilk, eggs, wheat germ, vanilla, cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of the syrup.
3) Heat a small pat of butter and 2 teaspoons of canola oil in a pan. (The butter browned too quickly and was very smokey, the oil didn't brown the pancakes enough, but the combo worked great). Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into pan making 3 to 4 inch rounds. Cook pancakes until brown and cooked through (about 2 minutes per side). Transfer to plates and keep in the oven on a warm setting until all remaining batter is cooked. Serve with syrup.
