Homemade Instant Pancake Mix and Blueberry Syrup

This is going to change your life irrevocably. Forgive any scintilla of self-congratulatory preening and accept my boast as simple, enthusiastic exuberance. That is the spirit in which it is intended. But I tell you: you just mix up the ingredients below, keep them in a container at easy reach and then every time you are required to be the usher-forth of good things of a morning, you just scoop some dry mixture out, mix with egg, milk and melted butter as directed and that's it. Pancakes a'plenty, without even having to think about it. You know it makes sense.
