YieldsMakes about 20 pancakes; 5 to 6 servings
Notes: For consistency, cooks at Marston's in Pasadena, California, prefer canned Maine blueberries in syrup; we like fresh blueberries in their batter too. Serve these pancakes with butter and warm maple syrup.

Place a nonstick griddle or a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat (350°). When hot, coat griddle lightly with oil and adjust heat to maintain temperature. Spoon batter in 1/3-cup portions onto griddle and cook until pancakes are browned on the bottom and edges begin to look dry, about 2 minutes; turn with a wide spatula and brown other sides, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes longer. Coat pan with more oil as necessary to cook remaining pancakes.
