“This is a refresh of a recipe. Martha Stewart's gang opts for low-fat buttermilk, but I never have that on hand so I trade in 2% milk or vanilla soymilk -- depending on what's in the fridge.The added wheat germ supplies some potassium and iron (it has more than any other food). I also add a teaspoon of cinnamon (because I love it) and cut the whole wheat flour with some all purpose flour so they don't taste too "nutty." To make the compote, you can use fresh or frozen blueberries -- up the lemon juice for more tartness and up the sugar for more sweetness.”
10-12 pancakes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the pancakes: Whisk together flours, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Mix in milk, oil and eggs. Let the mix stand for 10 minutes (if batter thickens, stir in 1 tablespoon water).
  2. To make the compote: Heat blueberries, lemon juice and salt in a saucepan over medium heat until berries begin to burst -- 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in sugar. Simmer, stirring often, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon -- 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. To cook the pancakes: Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Spoon in 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles appear. Flip and cook until golden brown -- about 2 minutes. Serve immediately or keep warm in a heated oven. Drizzle compote on to plate of pancakes.
