NATIONAL BLUEBERRY PANCAKE DAY – January 28

NATIONAL BLUEBERRY PANCAKE DAY

On January 28th, National Blueberry Pancake Day brinks the sweetness of blueberries to your pancake, flapjack or hotcake.

The early pancakes consisted mostly of flour and milk and were more like biscuits. Later, eggs, milk, a leavening agent (such as baking powder) and fat were added creating the fluffier, lighter pancake we know today.

Adding blueberries to the pancake batter when mixing up the ingredients may result in a bluish hue. To avoid this, add them right after dropping dollops of batter to the hot griddle.

Blueberries add a freshness to pancakes and nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese and copper.
