I watched as small bubbles rose and popped on top of the blue swirled pancakes. The heat had been rising in my kitchen since I began cooking breakfast an hour ago. I think there’s something to be said for Saturday morning breakfasts. Especially when it involves coffee and blueberry pancakes.
Blueberry pancakes and sunny mornings. Unfortunately, my morning began way to early! Sleeping would be so much easier if I weren’t a writer. Ah, alas! blueberry pancakes and coffee to the rescue.
Interestingly enough my writing pairs quite well with my historical interests. So as I munched merrily on my pancakes I wondered about their history. This is what I came up with.
Blueberry pancakes came to be with the rise of 20th century. These soft delicious breakfast cakes were “invented” by Elizabeth White and Frederick Coville. Pancakes, however, were invented way before that in the Stone Ages!
So the pancake will go throughout history.
Providing comfort and deliciousness to all!
I remember when I was a child picking blueberries at a blue berry patch with my grandmother. What a wonderful lady she is. And popping the round little juicy stone fruits into my mouth. Such a zing of flavor, wow!
When I was young I often went with my father to my neighbors house and she would give me a bowl of frozen blueberries.
The best treat! I am so grateful that both of these people were in my life. What a great and positive thing it is to reflect on the people in our life who have given us charity, love, and positively influenced our lives.
