Blueberry Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes

Oh, if only I’d made a note of what recipe I’d used for these blueberry pancakes. Or maybe I combined a couple of different recipes? If so: Oh, if only I’d written down what I’d done to make these blueberry pancakes. Here I sit, months later, life having gotten in the way of the blog, with no recipe for the best damn pancakes I’ve ever made. Honestly. I can’t tell you how upset I am knowing as I do know that I will never be able to replicate them. They were even good four months out of the freezer and into the toaster. They were that good.

I think one of the reasons I can’t remember the recipe is that I combined a bunch of recipes to make my own. But here’s a good jumping off point:: Bon Appetit’s Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes.

I do remember that I didn’t have buttermilk, so I did the ye-old-mix-milk-and-vinegear trick. Come and see, after the jump.

Well, at least I have photos of the ingredients. Looks like cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar:

Look! See that magazine on the counter? Wish I could figure out which one it was. Any thoughts, people?

Buttermilk (made by mixing vinegar with milk) and vanilla:

Dry ingredients:


Looks good already, doesn’t it? Blueberries from the garden don’t hurt, neither:

So I poured the batter in and then placed the blueberries in it, so as they wouldn’t get all broken and stuff:

Sometimes the pan is hotter in some places than others:

When I tell you these were delicious I am not kidding. They were the best. Ever.

A few eggs, too? Why not.

Yeah, and a little bacon. Benton’s bacon.

What a breakfast. Take that, Irene! (The hurricane. Not the person.)

Now. Any thoughts on the origin of this delicious recipe? Please share. I would assume if it were from a magazine, that the magazine was either July or August, 2011 issue. Any clues are greatly appreciated.
