Get ready to celebrate National Blueberry Pancake Day

Although blueberries are a modern addition to pancakes, it is not a common practice. This history of pancakes goes back many centuries. Pancakes may not have been as sweet in their original form. However, the creation of a wheat paste that can be fried in a pan or directly on hot ashes of an open flame could date back to the Stone Age, around 30,000 BC.

Researchers have discovered pancake-like ingredients in Otzi, the Iceman’s stomach, which was kept in the ice for at most 5000 years.

Eventually, the recipes for these first pancakes included milk, eggs and oil. Some even used ingredients that aren’t common today like cheese, potash, or cabbage. Blueberries are a native North American fruit so it took some time before they became part of the pancake’s evolution.

Blueberries are now a “superfood”, but hundreds of years ago, Native Americans were aware of their greatness and would use them to treat and prevent illness. Europeans discovered how incredible blueberries were once they reached the west. However, until the early 1900s when botanists and farmers were able to cultivate them, they remained wild.

Blueberries were eventually added to New World settlers’ recipes. They eventually found their way into pancakes which is why this day is celebrated.

It’s now time to celebrate National Blueberry Pancake Day

Participating in the celebrations of this day can be a lot of fun and delicious! These ideas will inspire you to make the most of National Blueberry Pancake Day.

Participating restaurants and diners will offer special and delicious pancakes filled with blueberries throughout the day. It’s possible that restaurants serving blueberry pancakes will offer special discounts or coupons to celebrate this day.

What could be more special than celebrating at a restaurant that boasts “pancakes”? IHOP (International House of Pancakes) is an American chain that offers deals for this day. There are IHOPs in every state and the District of Columbia. You can also find international stores, including the United Arab Emirates, Mexico and Canada, so it is easy to get your fix of blueberry pancakes from a nearby IHOP.

Blueberry pancakes are acceptable for breakfast, lunch and dinner on this day. Check out these recipes to have fun with the classic pancake recipe. Don’t forget to buy blueberries for those second helpings.

Some people find that it is easier to make a batch of pancake batter from a packet of mix. For those who don’t have any pancake mix or are a purist, it is possible to make your own. All you need is flour, baking powder (for leavening), sugar (white or dark), eggs, vanilla, melted Butter, and blueberries.

A basic pancake recipe with blueberries sprinkled on top is a timeless classic. But today is a great day for creativity and a chance to try something new. You can easily make any of these recipes vegan by using almond or oatmilk instead of dairy.

While pancakes aren’t necessarily the healthiest foods, you can make them healthier by adding oats to them, making them vegan and adding some blueberries. Blueberries are a superfood that has many health benefits. They can be added to a carb-laden breakfast, and they also provide a boost in vitamins and antioxidants.
