Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

Blueberry Pancakes with Whipped Cream

Imagine a tall stack of fluffy pancakes topped with a fresh blueberry syrup and whipped cream. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Pancakes always sound good to me; they are my favorite breakfast food of all-time.

Stack of Pancakes

My favorite way to cook pancakes is in a cast-iron skillet on the stovetop. I love the crispy-brown outside you can get with cast-iron. I’ve even been known to use a cast-iron griddle pan out on the grill to make pancakes-why? Because I can!

For the pancakes:

Pancake starting to cook

Preheat a cast-iron skillet or greased non-stick skillet on medium heat. Using a ½ cup measuring cup, scoop out batter onto skillet. When bubbles appear and start to pop, flip the pancake over. Cook until brown on second side.

Remove the pancake and set aside. Repeat for remaining batter. You may have to adjust your heat up or down depending on your stovetop. I usually have to turn mine down occasionally throughout the cooking process to not burn the pancakes.
