Today Kita from Pass the Sushi is flipping pancakes for us! Kita has food for everyone on her beautiful blog. Thanks, Kita, for joining us today!

Hi everyone, this is Kita. How could I not participate in a month long pancake lovin’ throwdown?When Rachel asked us for our favorite pancake recipes, my mind rushed over the options, but I wanted to also be realistic in my goal. I finally settled on something that I knew would please both members of my household, classic blueberry pancakes.

These traditional pancakes are light, fluffy, and come together quickly on a Saturday morning. I got the recipe from CakeLove in the Morning.

If you have someone who is picky in your household, and doesn’t like blueberries, just fold in the blueberries after portioning out their pancakes on the skillet. (Not that I have any one in my house who would ever complain of blueberries mingling in the same area as his plain boring pancakes.)

Don’t have blueberries? Use any other berry that happens to be in your fridge at the time!
