Bake 52: classic pancakes with flavored maple syrup

I really love pancakes.  So I knew this was going to be a great week!  It's also nice every so often to make something quick and easy.  These pancakes are just that.

Dry ingredients whisked together.

This is hard to see, but there's a well there in the middle of the dry ingredients.

Pour the wet stuff into the dry.

Stir carefully, leaving it lumpy.

Cook on a hot griddle.  The book explains that if the griddle isn't hot enough, you'll get pale, gummy pancakes.  Such a great tip.

Flip.  Cook a little more.  Place in a 200 degree oven to keep warm.

Berry Maple Syrup:

Frozen blueberries... cook them in a saucepan, mashing them, until the moisture has evaporated.

Add maple syrup, (the real deal, please),  lemon zest and salt.

Stir until slightly thickened.

Top your pancakes.  Yum.

I loved this pancake recipe.  I'll be making this one again.  Check out Jesse's blog for the complete recipe.

maybe the blueberry syrup with help me get over my hatred of m.syrup? I might have to try it with the rest of the syrup I bought. The pancakes look perfect! It was kind of nice to have a fun and easy week.
