This recipe was handed down thru the generations and was actually prepared by my ancestors along the AuSable River in Northern Michigan. This is pretty fool proof and easy.
Put vegetable oil into a cast iron skillet covering the bottom by about 1 inch. While your grease is heating, mix flour, salt, baking powder, eggs. Add water and mix until it resembles pancake batter, you may have to add a bit more water to get to that consistency. Fold in blueberries if desired. Drop by soup ladle into hot oil, fry on both sides until brown and a bit crispy. These pancakes will poof up because of the baking powder. Serve with maple syrup or sprinkle with sugar. YUMMMY!
