Blueberry pancake

I absolutely love pancake and always crave for a fluffy pancake drenched in maple syrup:) Sometimes I make myself one or two small pancakes whenever I need a little pampering:)  This one is a 'blueberry pancake with buttermilk and wheat flour' . Try with and without wheat and enjoy both versions.

The Tuesday before Lent days is called 'National pancake day'. Honoring the tradition, here is my most favorite blueberry pancake from my kitchen to you all!
Blueberry wheat pancake

Ingredients:
All purpose flour - 3/4 cup
whole wheat flour - 3/4 cup
egg - 2
salt - 1/2 tsp
baking soda - 3/4 tsp
baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
sugar - 3 tsp
buttermilk - 2 cup
butter - 2 tbsp + 2 tsp
blueberry - 1/2 cup

Method:
Mix wheat flour, AP flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, salt by sifting and put in a mixing bowl.
Pour buttermilk, eggs, 2 tbsp molten butter and blueberries.
Mix slightly (don't mix too much). If needed add some milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
Heat a dosa tawa / griddle or frying pan.
Slightly rub butter.
Using a 1/4 cup measure pour small pancakes, let it get golden color, flip once and take out.
Likewise do for the remaining batter.
Blueberry wheat pancake is ready!

Serving suggestion:
Serve with  maple syrup or any pancake syrup.
Makes a breakfast / lunch / dinner. I love it any time:)

Note:

1 cup Buttermilk = 1 cup milk + 1/2 lemon juice
1 cup Buttermilk = 1/2 cup plain yogurt + 1/2 cup water
Makes 10 - 12 pancakes.
I have tried this without AP flour, but it comes out denser. So adding AP flour is better.
Pure AP flour pancakes tastes very delicious.
Prepare all the pancakes immediately to get the best results.
Pancakes can be kept frozen till use.
If trying to use leftover batter later, then keep refrigerated, add 1/2 tsp baking soda before pouring on pan.
Instead of the dry ingredients I have mentioned, we can just use self rising flour - 1 1/2 cup.
