    I can’t think of anything to comment so I’m just going to post a Blueberry pancake recipe.

    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 1/4 teaspoons white sugar
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
    1/2 cup frozen blueberries, thawed

    1. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. In a small bowl, beat together egg and milk. Stir milk and egg into flour mixture. Mix in the butter and fold in the blueberries. Set aside for 1 hour.A

    2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.J

      Sounds delicious, Billy! Maybe we can make your comment relevant after all. I’ve always wondered why the DXATC does not offer a cooking program. Restaurants are a big business around here due to the tourism.

    2 large eggs
    2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
    1 cup mashed ripe bananas, (2 medium)
    1 cup buttermilk, (see Ingredient notes)
    1 cup unprocessed wheat bran, (see Ingredient notes)
    1/4 cup canola oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup whole-wheat flour
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chocolate chips, (optional)
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts, (optional)


    Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
    Whisk eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in bananas, buttermilk, wheat bran, oil and vanilla.
    Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips, if using. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups (they’ll be quite full). Sprinkle with walnuts, if using.
    Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and spring back when touched lightly, 15 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.

    Tips & Notes

    Ingredient Notes: You can use buttermilk powder in place of fresh buttermilk. Or make “sour milk”: mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
    Unprocessed wheat bran is the outer layer of the wheat kernel, removed during milling. Also known as miller’s bran, it can be found in the baking section. Do not substitute bran cereal in this recipe.
