It is important to not over mix the batter to ensure light and fluffy pancakes. This should be a quick process of blending the wet and dry ingredients together.
Let the batter sit for ten minutes to ensure the gluten can relax for more tender pancakes.
For the Homemade Blueberry Sauce, you can make the sauce thin or thick. If the sauce becomes too thick then add more water and Orange Juice. And if it is too thin, add more arrowroot.
