Crispy Edge Blueberry Pancakes

In Deadly Secrets from Pond Island, Vanessa savors blueberry pancakes while dining with

someone who she's not sure is a friend or foe. These pancakes with crispy edges are sure to

make your day sweeter, regardless of who you're dining with. Make them and post a picture for me on

   1 cup all-purpose flour

   ¼ cup white sugar (you can add less if you desire)

   1 tablespoon baking powder

   ¼ teaspoon salt

   1 cup milk, at room temperature

   1 egg, at room temperature

   1 tablespoon oil

   1 cup blueberries*

   2 teaspoons oil, or as needed

   Maple syrup


   1. ​Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; make a hole in the center of the 
   dry mixture. Pour milk, egg, and 1 tablespoon oil into the center. Mix well.

  2.  Fold blueberries into mixture.


   3. Place a skillet over medium-high heat; sprinkle a few drops of water onto the skillet. If the droplets sizzle, the skillet is ready; add 2 teaspoons oil. Take care not to burn your oil.

  4. Spoon batter onto the skillet; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

  5. Pour your maple syrup into a small saucepan on low heat while the pancakes are browning. Once warmed, pour the syrup into a gravy boat and serve with your pancakes.

 *You may substitute in bananas, chocolate chips, or other ingredient of your choice.
