Buttermilk Pancake (Blueberry and Chocolate)

Pancakes are one of the most delicious and easiest flat cakes often considered a weekend treat. It is a great dish for busy mornings. It can be made and frozen or even the batter can be frozen.

They can be made in different ways and with different ingredients and with different toppings too. This dish can be made as a sweet or a savoury dish.
