12 Days of Wild Blues, Day 4: Memorable Holiday Morning
The stockings have been hung, the cards have been delivered. Christmas morning signals, among other things, an end to the chaos. It conjures a house filled with torn tissue paper, strewn boxes, and children dressed in pajamas busying themselves with gifts. Alongside them, weary parents remind them to pause for a moment and eat breakfast.
Day 4: Blueberry Pancake BreakfastThere are blitzes, coffee cakes, and scones, and all do their part to showcase this little blue fruit. But breakfast is for pancakes, after all. When it comes to delicious, the taste of those tender disks covered with syrup just can’t be replicated. Here are some options for your holiday morn:
- This Apple Pancake recipe is particularly enticing for its Wild Blueberry Apple Compote topping. Buckwheat Banana Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce provide another unique alternative.
- Food and Wine has this classic blueberry pancake recipe made moist by a twist of ricotta.
- Want the best? Food52 thinks they have it with these Lemony Cream Cheese pancakes with Blueberries.
- Martha Stewart has first-rate Buttermilk Blueberry Recipes that are amenable to bananas as an alternative to wild blueberries—but why?
