Ingredients

  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 heaping Tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups of milk
  • 3/4 cup of oil
  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of baking powder
  • 1 pint of blueberries - rinsed and drained - for topping
  • Blue food coloring gel

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, break the eggs, and beat them with a whisk until they're light lemon yellow, and fluffy. Add the milk, and stir.
  • Add the Oil, salt, and sugar, and whisk together.
  • Add the Flour and baking powder, and whisk together just until ingredients are mixed. (Batter may be a little lumpy, but that's okay)
  • Divide batter; you'll need three cereal bowls; place an equal amount of batter in all three bowls, and leave an equal amount of batter in the big bowl. In the first cereal bowl, place enough gel to turn the batter light blue (start with a 1/8 teaspooin the next bowl, add a little more food coloring to make the batter a little darker, or a medium blue, and in the third bowl, add more food coloring to make the batter a little darker than the medium color. You should have the original batter in the big bowl, a light blue batter in the first bowl, a medium blue in the second, and a darker blue in the third.
  • Heat an electric griddle until butter melts and sizzles.
  • With the heat on a medium setting, drop the batter for the pancakes with either a ladle, or ice cream scoop, and cook until golden brown.
  • Flip the pancakes with a pancake turner, and remove to a plate to serve, starting with the dark blue, medium blue, light blue, and the natural color on top. Drizzle with melted butter, whipped cream, blueberries, and syrup.
  • Follow the same instructions until all pancakes have been cooked and plated for breakfast. Enjoy!
