A few Sunday’s ago I wanted to make blueberry pancakes, but did not have any buttermilk on hand. I started scouring the internet for recipes in hopes I would find a recipe that I could use with the basic ingredients I had on hand. Sure enough, I found this recipe from Saveur. It intrigued me because the ingredients contained seltzer water and yogurt. Two non-traditional pancake ingredients (well at least in my book)! I just so happened to have club soda and an individual sized container of blueberry yogurt on hand. I knew I was destined to make this recipe.
I was actually surprised at how good these pancakes came out. Now, let’s keep in mind that these aren’t fluffy buttermilk pancakes that melt in your mouth. These were a bit more lighter and almost spongey (but I hate to describe it as spongey since that doesn’t sound appetizing)! The blueberry yogurt gave an additional layer of blueberry flavoring! In a buttermilk bind–I’d make these again!
