Mini Blueberry Tea Cakes

You know? I haven’t had pancakes for breakfast for a while but when I woke up this morning, I was craving for pancakes, blueberry pancakes to be specifically.    Lucky that the hubby brought home a package of fresh blueberry yesterday for my smoothie, but I kept hearing the rebellious side of me saying, “blueberry pancakes, blueberry pancakes, blueberry pancakes!”    So, I decided to whip up some batter with a touch of Greek yogurt to make pancakes! 

BUT…………………………….here I go again! My “other side of me” said, “let’s put in the oven!” Instead of making pancakes, I suddenly found myself turning on the oven, brushing up and filling the mini muffin pan with the pancake batter, and here they went, in the oven! 


I was anxiously waiting for them to cook by setting the time of the oven for 30 minutes.   But when the 30 minutes has gone, the mini cakes were still plainly white and barely cooked, but the berries started to breeding out a little.  So I decided to give it another 12 minutes and I just literally stood there and stared at them to turn golden brown. Oh goodness! Those mini cakes looked just lovely! 

The taste test? The mini cakes were fluffy, nice and light, just as the pancakes usually are, with the gorgeous sweet tart of blueberries. Though they were not as sweet as other cakes because the batter was made for pancakes supposedly to be eaten with syrup or honey, but they were absolutely perfect companion for a cup of hot green tea and hot brew coffee.  So I called them "Mini Blueberry Tea Cakes."  What could go wrong with that, right?

1/2 c low-fat Greek yogurt
2/3 c milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
