Great Breakfast Ideas

What is your favorite breakfast? From scrambled eggs and bacon, to hash browns and pancakes, it seems everyone has his or her own favorite. Diane Laney Fitzpatrick, a contributing writer for, says, "Mine is a toasted English muffin with cream cheese and strawberry jam (with coffee, of course!)."

I happen to like the taste of pancakes. Plain pancakes are good, but every now and then, I like to incorporate either a fruit or a different flavor into the pancake. With summer quickly approaching, I'd thought I'd share a recipe for Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes that will certainly have all of your family up and around the breakfast table on a sunny Saturday summer morning. The recipe was adapted from a blueberry buttermilk pancake served at the Glen-Ella Springs Inn located just a few miles north of Atlanta in Clarksville, Georgia. This centuries old inn is actually on the National Register of Historic Places and first opened in 1988.

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
Serves 4

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon, for griddle
  1. Place a griddle pan or a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, buttermilk, blueberries, and 4 tablespoons melted butter, and stir to combine. The batter will be slightly lumpy.
  2. When the griddle is hot, using a pastry brush, brush the remaining tablespoon of butter onto the griddle.
  3. Pour 3 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet or griddle for each pancake, spaced about 2 inches apart, and cook for 1 minute or until the pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around the edges. Flip over and cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup or whatever favorite toppings you desire.
