1 egg or 1 1/2 cups buttermilk or 1/2 cup cottage cheese or 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or 2 tsp. baking powder or 1/2 tsp. baking soda or 1 cup blueberries, plus more for serving or butter, for serving or maple syrup, for serving

Oil a large skillet or griddle (the Scots call it a "girdle", hence the name) and preheat it over medium heat.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Stir in the buttermilk and cottage cheese.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Sift again into the egg mixture. Stir in the dry mixture very lightly, mixing only enough to combine. If the mixture is too dry, stir in a small amount of additional buttermilk. Gently stir in the blueberries.

Scoop the batter onto the hot, well-oiled pan to make the pancakes. After the cakes have set on one side, lightly loosen them with a metal spatula to make sure they do not stick. When the edges of the cakes appear dry, flip the cakes carefully to cook until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. This can take from 2-5 minutes per side.

Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup or more fresh blueberries.
