The original version of these bite-size hush puppy-style breakfast snacks made with extra thick pancake batter and coated with cinnamon sugar are so popular at the diner chain that chefs at Denny's went back to work in the development kitchen to come up with another version that has blueberries and white chocolate in it. Initially I thought I could use an instant blueberry pancake mix to clone the new flavor, such as the mix made by Krusteaz. But those "blueberries" in there aren't even real blueberries - they're blueberry-flavored bits. Yech! The best solution for the best clone is to add chopped up dried blueberries to an extra-thick batter, along with a little chopped up white chocolate chips. I found that the thick batter was easy to portion out using a 1 3/4-inch cookie scoop that's been dipped in oil, but you could also use a tablespoon measure as long as you don't scoop up too much. Keep your batter balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter or they may not cook all the way through. Here are clones for the original Pancake Puppies as well as the new blueberry and white chocolate chip version.
