As you are exiting the Marano Campus Center and are walking to Cooper Dining Hall, you spot six new and beautiful sculptures on the lawn.  All of a sudden, you feel the need to create a food item that incorporates your personal artistry.  Since you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you decide to go for blueberry pancakes.  They add color, flavor, and pop to the same-old pancakes that you usually eat.  In addition, you know that they are healthier for you because you are consuming your daily fruit, which is filled with antioxidants.  This project will have your creative juices flowing in the morning, and that will set your day!  While eating your blueberry pancakes, you can laugh at the old times when your parents used to scold you for messing around with your food.  But now, you can have the “last laugh” because you created something from play that you can actually enjoy too!  Please scroll to the bottom for simple directions that you can expand through your own touch.

List of Ingredients for Blueberry Pancakes:

1 (¼) Cups of All-Purpose Flour: Buy at your local store.

½ Teaspoon of Salt: Take your bit of spice from the dining hall.

1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder: Buy at your local store.

1 (¼) Teaspoons of White Sugar: Pour yourself some sugar from the dining hall.

1 Egg: Buy at your local store.

1 Cup Milk: Take out a cup of milk from the dining hall.

½ Table Spoon Butter, Melted: You can take the little packets of butter from the dining hall.

½ Cup of Frozen Blueberries-Thawed: Get fresh blueberries in the dining hall, and freeze them until needed.

Recommended Condiments:

Honey or Syrup

Whipped Cream



In a large bowl, sift all of your dry ingredients, which includes: flour, salt, baking powder, and white sugar.  In a smaller bowl, mix all of your wet ingredients: the egg, milk, and butter.  Next, stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Lastly, you can add the blueberries into the batter, if you are using pancake shapers.  (If not, it is okay to wait until the batter is on the stove.)

Place butter on your cooking pan, and turn the stove on to a medium heat.  

**For your own creative purposes, you can buy a squeeze bottle (or use a clean ketchup bottle) to fill up with pancake batter.  (Sidenote: This is just a substitute for pancake shapers.)  That being said, you can carefully create all the shapes you would like, using your pancake batter-bottle.  Then, you can add in your blueberries, and voìla!
