How to Make Pancakes with Blueberry Ginger Sauce


  1. For the Pancakes:
    Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine all of the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry and mix. If the batter is too thick add more milk to thin out the batter. Add the milk a little at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.
    Heat a griddle with a pat of butter; when the griddle is hot ladle the batter onto the pan.
    When the bubbles appear in the pancakes; flip and finish cooking on the other side.

    For the Blueberry Ginger Sauce:
    Heat a small sauce pan. When the pan is hot add the sugar. The sugar will seem to burn; don’t worry. Add the water immediately and stir. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest and orange zest.
    Turn the heat to low and while preparing the pancakes.
    Plate the pancakes. Top with a dollop of sour cream; the blueberry sauce and syrup.
