Blueberry Pancakes with Maple Cinnamon Butter Syrup and an Award .

I discovered pancakes when I had gone to the US about 13 years back . I got hooked on it the moment I had it and how I wish I hadn't because I simply cannot seem to resist them . The two weeks I was holidaying in the US pancakes were the only things I had for breakfast and sometimes even for dinner . I came back and then introduced them to my sister and she is hooked on it too , actually she is worse than me but being the lucky one she is , she remains thin as ever no matter how much she eats , unlike me who just have to look at food and that's it , it's on me .
So anyways moving on from the story , I learned how to make them and have been making them ever since because now my kids just love them and I try my best to not have them (I seem to have some willpower now ) . I have never found a healthy pancake recipe to my liking , I have tried several but I have given up, either have them like these or don't have them at all  . These pancakes are light , buttery and quite fluffy , to make it a little bit healthy I top them with blueberries and for the kids with chocolate chips and serve them with this warm maple cinnamon butter syrup so here goes......


1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup yoghurt
1/2 cup milk
50 gms butter melted
1/2 cup blueberries

for the syrup 

1/2 cup maple syrup
25 gms butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder


Mix all the dry ingredients together really well with  a whisk
Mix all the wet ingredients together and add it to the dry ingredients and whisk it but do not over mix it , let the batter be a bit lumpy .If the batter is too thick add a little more milk to get the desired consistency .
Now heat a non-stick pan on medium
Pour ladleful of batter in the pan .
When bubbles start appearing on top add a few blueberries on each of the pancake and turn them and brown them on the other side as well .
In a saucepan add all the ingredients for  the syrup and heat on low flame till the butter has melted.
