Bewitching Blueberry Pancakes

When I was little I used to visit my grandma a lot. She had some really cool books for me to read. One of my favorites was Old Black Witch by Wende & Harry Devlin . I just loved that crabby old witch that wasn't really as mean as she wanted people to think. In the back of the book was a recipe for blueberry pancakes so I begged my grandma to make them and she did, but I had to help. That day I learned how to make pancakes and I learned that I really don't like blueberries very much. but I can always substitute another fruit like apples or strawberries. HB loves blueberries so this recipe is for him;)

Bewitching Blueberry Pancakes

1 1/4 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons melted fat or oil
1/2 cup washed blueberries

As you stir in the blueberries (this is the magic part) say three times:

Gobble dee gook
With a wooden spoon,
The laugh of a toad
At the height of the moon!

Pour on a hot griddle and watch.

You can make things disappear just like the Old Black Witch. Put three pancakes in front of any hungry boy or girl and watch them go.
