1 1 /2 cups 375 mL all -purpose flour
3 1/2 tsp 17 mL baking powder
3/4 tsp 3 mL salt
2 Tbsp 30 mL natural bran
1 egg beaten
1 3/4 cups 425 mL milk
3 Tbsp 45 mL butter or oil melted
1 Tbsp 15 mL maple syrup
In large mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt and bran. Combine egg, milk, oil and maple syrup. Make a well in dry ingredients; add liquid. Stir until smooth. Let rest for 3 -4 minutes. Pour batter onto hot griddle and cook on 1 side until puffy, full of bubbles and lightly brown. Turn only once and cook the other side.
Fold in a few fresh or thawed blueberries for a special treat. When a little maple syrup is added to batter mixture, a more even browning will occur. Serve with maple syrup, maple butter or maple jelly.
