Blueberry Pancakes

Sunday morning 9 AM phone call: our son is calling from his home in Boston to get Jack's pancake recipe.
Sunday morning pancakes are a tradition around here, usually with fresh or frozen blueberries.  
If you wish to use frozen blueberries, get them out of the freezer the night before.  Shake out one cup of berries and let them thaw overnight.
Here's the recipe:

2 eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 and 1/2  cups whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder.
1 cup blueberries

(If  your baking powder has lumps, push thru a strainer or otherwise break them up.)

Beat the eggs, then add milk and oil and beat well.
Mix the dry ingrdients thoroughly.
Mix dry and wet ingredients together.  Stir in berries.

Heat your griddle.  It's ready when a drop of water flicked on it jumps and sputters and is gone. Lightly oil the griddle.

Ladle batter onto the griddle, and cook 2 - 3 minutes on the first side, until bubbles form, but before they pop.

Flip and cook about 2 minutes on second side.

Serve with organic butter and real maple syrup.  Smiles all around.
