  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup yellow or blue cornmeal
  • 5 oz all purpose flour, by weight (1 cup, measured)
  • 2.5 oz whole wheat flour, by weight (1/2 cup, measured)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 dry pint fresh blueberries
  • butter or oil for the griddle


  • Whisk together the lemon juice and milk and set it aside to curdle and thicken.
  • In a large bowl, whisk to combine the cornmeal, flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk to combine the milk, eggs, and melted butter. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry, and stir just enough for the dry ingredients to disappear. Don't try to stir out the lumps.
  • Heat a large griddle or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Grease the pan with butter or oil and portion scoops of your batter onto the pan (I used this large scoop). Add about 10 (or more) blueberries by placing them on top. Cook for a couple minutes, until you see bubbles on the top. That's your indication to flip! Cook for another minute, then remove from the pan. Cook the rest of the pancakes, and enjoy with some maple syrup!
