Sweet Corn Pancakes with Blueberry Balsamic Sauce


You, dear readers, remind me of myself. You hate surprises. You just can’t wait. You have to know what’s up NOW. Right…now.

I get it…that’s how I am, too. That’s probably why we get along so well, you and I.

Plus, you probably love breakfast. No one was every lying when they said breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s true! While some of you (and many of my patients) say you “can’t” eat in the mornings, or you’re just not hungry…I just can’t relate. After my morning coffee, it’s on to the next best thing (breakfast).


Breakfast at home on the weekends has been neglected as of late. Travel and life have gotten me away from my weekend breakfast events and by last week, I was desperate for breakfast food. So desperate that we had breakfast for dinner. Let me just say that breakfast for dinner (“brinner” I recently heard it referred to — how cute!) is quite the stellar idea. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not whipping up flapjacks on a Monday morning…but I can surely reheat some in about 30 seconds…that I can do.

Back to my original rant — you guys can’t bare the suspense of me bragging about a recipe on Facebook and then not sharing. And so I cave…because it’s just not kind to withhold recipes from people. That’s just mean.


I didn’t dare tell Mr. Prevention that these pancakes contained corn. Despite his Illinois corn field roots, he would give me the side eye in disapproval. I went about my brinner-making way and as soon as he smelled the organic Michigan blueberries picked by your truly simmering away in the balsamic vinegar and sugar, his nose got the best of him. On my hip in no time was that hubby of mine.

I couldn’t even get the pancakes off the griddle before he was helping himself…and loving these corny (literally) pancakes. I have no doubt that you’ll love them, too.


Work, diabetes cooking class, and my last work holiday party…wee!

P.S.  The tikka masala was a HUGE hit – woo!

Be well,


  1. I’m thinking of making a giant vat of that Blueberry balsamic and just putting it on every single thing I eat for a day.

  2. My boyfriend actually said last week that one of the reasons we work so well is the importance we both place on breakfast. It’s always my favorite meal we have out….

  3. Oh YUM. I am drooling over here. Haven’t had breakfast yet, and I’m home alone. It would be a shame if I made this without Nick here to enjoy ;)

  4. Breakfast looks amazing! Can I trade what you’re having with my oatmeal? ;)

  5. Beautiful photos for what sounds like an elegant (and highly delicious) breakfast. Love the uniqueness of this and I bet that blueberry sauce is amazing.

  6. I am SO with you. I wake up starving most days, and I also LOVE brinner! I am so glad you made this because I thought it looked great on “Eats Well…” but I was nervous to try it.

  7. I couldn’t imagine not eating breakfast. I’d never make it through the day.

  8. Yummm! I was drooling when Joanne posted this, and now I’m drooling again….need to make this already! We love breakfast for dinner at my house. Of course, my kids would flip out if I put corn in their pancakes :-)

  9. I think corn pancakes would be a big hit in my house.

  10. These look AMAZING! I love corn pancakes…and that blue berry sauce just sounds so tasty! Yum.

  11. YUM! And yes, you’re right… I. LOVE. BREAKFAST. And don’t get why some (or most) people can’t eat it! Sometimes I think I’m weird for how much I look forward to breakfast… good to know I’m not alone in this world!

    I bet these yummy corn cakes would be great with a savory topping as well!
