Blueberry Pancake in a Jar


Detachment is a welcome feeling sometimes.

Maybe it’s just me, but when I roll out of bed in the morning I’m ridiculously hungry. So, I wanted to make a breakfast that requires minimal preparation, or utensils, or cookware, or time.

Pancake in a Jar 

1 cup flour
1 tb baking powder
2 tb organic sugar
2 tb vegan margarine, melted (or sub. real butter)
3/4 cup nut milk (or sub. dairy milk)

Combine flour, baking powder, and sugar in a small bowl, and whisk until combined. Stir in melted margarine and milk until batter forms.

Place blueberries on bottoms of jars, then fill about halfway with batter. Pancake will rise while cooking. Microwave for about 1 minute for small jars, or 90 seconds for larger jars. Let cool before topping with more margarine, blueberries, and syrup. Makes 4 small jar cakes or 2 large ones.

I enjoyed these with some slow French dream pop. If you haven’t heard of AIR (you’ve heard them if you’ve seen The Virgin Suicides) then you should go take a listen. I’d recommend this song, or this one, or this one.
