Blueberry pancakes

I made blueberry pancakes for breakfast today. I found the recipe on Martha Stewart and with my newest love of blueberries decided to give them a try. They are full of healthy ingredients and so on their own are wonderful. However, for family added to-die-for homemade buttermilk syrup and they were just delicious. Thanks Martha!

Blueberry Pancakes
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/8 cup ground flax seed
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
3 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 cups (1 pint) blueberries

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, flax seed, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda
In another bowl whisk together milk, butter and egg
Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined
Mixture will be lumpy
Now for the best part!
Drain your plump, fresh, delightfully healthy blueberries
Heat your griddle to about 250 degrees. Spray with cooking spray (or melted butter, yum)
Spoon batter onto griddle 1/3 cup at a time.
Sprinkle with blueberries
Cook until edges are set, flip and cook until golden brown
Now for the syrup!
In a saucepan add:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cubes butter
2 Tbsp white corn syrup
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Let it simmer, boil for 2-3 minutes
Remove from heat and add 1 tsp baking soda
Spoon over just about anything!
