My Grandmother's Blueberry Pancake #Recipe by Karen Rose Smith

This is a recipe my grandmother made for me whenever I'd spend overnights with my grandparents. I looked forward to morning and cooking in the kitchen with her. When blueberries were in season, they were doubly good.  So here is my grandma's home made blueberry pancake recipe.

My Grandmother's Blueberry Pancakes

Beat 4 eggs well with a whisk (very important)
1 cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla 
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of blueberries 

After whisking eggs, mix in the milk, sugar, vanilla, and baking powder.  Stir in the flour 1/2 cup at a time until the mixture is the consistency of cake batter.  Drop with a ladle onto a medium hot griddle or skillet. (My grandma used a cast iron pan.) Wait until bubbles form on top surface before flipping.  You can also sprinkle them with cinnamon right off the griddle and serve with apple butter or butter and syrup.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 95th novel will be released in 2016.

Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens.  And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.

Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
