Today, January 28th, is National Blueberry Pancake Day.
American pancakes are similar to Scotch pancakes and drop scones. The blueberry pancake is a North American creation, as the blueberry bush is native to north America. Blueberries are small, indigo coloured berries (rather than blue) that are full of nutrients, although wild blueberries tend to be higher in nutritional value.
