14 Ways- Day Two: A "Hearty" Breakfast

Breakfast waiting for me in the morning is one of the ultimate symbols my hubby shows he cares. It just feels nice to sit down to a delicious meal that you didn't have to cook, doesn't it??

One of my husband's favorite morning meals is a heaping stack of buttermilk blueberry pancakes.


Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes
  • 2 3/4 cups Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 3 cups Buttermilk
  • 4 Tbs Melted Butter
  • 3 Tbs Sugar
Mix thoroughly until batter is smooth and lump-free.

The only problem with buttermilk pancakes is I almost NEVER have buttermilk on hand. Fortunately there is an easy solution to that- simply add 1tsp of vinegar to every one cup of milk your recipe calls for. I let it sit while I'm mixing the other ingredients together to let the vinegar enhance the milk.
1 tsp vinegar to 1 cup milk = Buttermilk!

This recipe makes a ton of batter. I made 10 pancakes and saved the rest of the batter for waffles another day.

Cut your pancakes into hearts with a heart cookie cutter for a little extra touch.

A little syrup and voila, a beautiful "hearty" breakfast for the one you love.

Just for fun, this is the breakfast my hubby made for me last Valentine's Day! So cute.
