{Guest Post} She rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household.

16 November 2011

Proverbs 31:15 speaks of a woman who "rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household."

It is a profitable thing for us as young ladies to be equipped to serve our future husband before we are married. If we are prepared, we will be able to bless our man each day with not only nourishing words and love but also delicious and nourishing food.

With that in mind, I would like to share a delicious and healthy breakfast recipe that will bless your family - and your future family as well. If you are reading this post, than certainly you are old enough to rise before your family, grab an apron, a bowl and a few ingredients and prepare for the joy that comes with blessing others!

Pancakes with Maine Blueberry Sauce

2 Eggs
1 1/2 C All-Purpose Flour
1/2 C Whole-ground Buckwheat Flour
1/2 C Sugar
2t. Baking Powder
1t. Baking Soda
1t. Salt
2 1/4 C Buttermilk
4T (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/2t. Vanilla
1-2T. Vegetable Oil (I prefer Grapeseed or Coconut Oil)
2C Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
Zest of 1/2 Lemon
1T. Cornstarch
2t. Fresh Lemon Juice


Preheat oven to 200* F.

In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs on medium speed until frothy. Add the all-purpose fand buckwheat flours, 3 Tbs. Sugar, the baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, butter and vanilla and stir just until smooth.

Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the griddle with oil or spray with nonstick cooking spray (or coconut oil!). Scoop the batter onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form on top of the pancakes and the batter is set, 1-2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown on the other side, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining pancakes.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the blueberries, the remaining 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbs. sugar, the lemon zest and 1/2 cup water and stir to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch, 1 Tbs. water and lemon juice. Add to the berries and stir until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve the warm blueberry sauce over the pancakes. Serves 4.

"Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates." 
Proverbs 31:31
