There's something about Sundays. Next to Friday I think it's my favorite day of the week. There's a slowness to the day.{ Unless you're one of those people who spends your Sunday running around getting ready for the upcoming week!} I like to start the day with a big cup of coffee and CBS Sunday Morning on the TV. By the time the show is over, it's time for breakfast!!! The rest of the day is usually spent catching up on the previous weeks TV obsessions, cooking for the upcoming week reading alllllll my favorite food blogs and taking a nap. Not a bad way to spend the day eh?!

I really enjoy cooking breakfast foods...so warm and comforting. When my sister got married last year, she had a brunch reception and it was fabulous! Eggs, waffles, bacon, biscuits, fresh fruit, pancakes! God, what is there not to like??? In the summer months I like to incorporate a lot of fresh fruit into my meals and breakfast is no different. These buttermilk pancakes are the perfect combination of sweet and fluffy. Adding a fresh blueberry compote in place of maple syrup is a nice change. Sprinkle a little powedered sugar on top and you're gonna be in breakfast heaven....promise!

Buttermilk Pancake Recipe:

  • 2 Eggs

  • 2 tsp Baking powder

  • 1 tsp Baking soda

  • 2 cups Flour

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 2 tbsp Sugar

  • 2 tbsp Butter

  • 2 cups Buttermilk

  • 2 tbsp Butter melted

In a medium bowl, combine the salt, baking powder, baking soda, flour and sugar. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs and buttermilk adding the melted butter.  Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients, stirring until almost completely combined.

Butter your griddle or pan and scoop 1/3 cup of batter and cook until bubbles begin to form, flip and cook until golden brown. Serve immediately with your warm blueberry compote!

Blueberry Compote Recipe:

  • 1 cup Blueberries

  • 2 tbsp Water

  • 1/3 cup Sugar

  • 1 tsp Lemon juice

  • 1 tsp Cornstarch (optional)

Combine the above ingredients over a medium heat on your stove top. Stirring constantly to avoid burning the fruit. Add the cornstarch if you feel you need a thicker consistency. Pour over your pancakes and enjoy!!
