National Blueberry Pancake Day

As if pancakes aren't delicious enough, adding blueberries to the mix has to be one of the greatest ideas ever. To celebrate this clever combination, January 28, 2011 has been named National Blueberry Pancake Day.

And where there are blueberries, there's Driscoll's. As the nation's leading provider of fresh berries, Driscoll's blueberries are grown on family owned farms in premier growing regions throughout the world. At this time of year, the blueberries are farmed in the fertile valleys of Chile, to ensure the most delicious fruit possible.

So it's no surprise that National Blueberry Pancake Day is a favorite of Driscoll's. And when it comes to pancakes, people clearly have their favorites, too. Turns out, most people would like to have breakfast with TV's Modern Family, over the Royal family or the Partridge Family. And when asked what chef they would like to prepare their blueberry pancakes, 56.6 percent chose Paula Deen. And not surprisingly, most people are watching TV in their pajamas as they enjoy their blueberry pancakes.

And while people love eating blueberry pancakes, it's likely they could use some help making them.

The first step is choosing the right equipment. The key to a perfect pancake? The pan. Circulon is the only way to go. After all, Circulon gourmet cookware features an advanced nonstick surface that is durable and metal utensil safe, so foods that are prone to sticking, like pancakes, easily slide off, even when little or no butter or oil is used.

Now that you've got the tools, the berries and the batter, it's time to whip up a batch of blueberry pancakes to eat while wearing pajamas and watching Modern Family and/or Paula Deen. Try this delightful recipe using delicious Driscoll's blueberries.
