Blueberry Gingerbread Pancakes

A new twist on an old favorite.

2 cups unbleached flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup mild (light) molasses
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 cups blueberries(fresh are best, but frozen work too)
additonal vegetable oil

Sift dry ingredients into medium bowl. Whisk molasses, buttermilk, eggs, and 3 Tbsp. oil in large bowl to blend. Add dry ingredients and whisk just until smooth. Fold in blueberries.

Heat large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Brush with oil. Drop 3 Tbsp. batter for each pancake. Using back of spoon, spread each pancake to 3-inch round. Cook until bottoms are lightly golden. The key is to cook SLOWLY, otherwise they're burned on the outside and raw and gooey on the inside. Make sure pancakes aren't too thick on the pan. Flip and cook until heated through. If desired, transfer pancakes to a preheated 200 F oven to keep warm until serving. Re-oil skillet between batches. Serve with real butter and maple syrup.
