How to Make Blueberry Pancakes

We'll reference our blueberry pancakes recipe, but you can easily start with a classic pancake or buttermilk pancake recipe and simply add up to ½ cup of fresh or frozen blueberries.

Step 1: Prepare Blueberry Pancake Batter

In a large bowl ($10, Target) stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, use a fork to combine egg, buttermilk, and oil. Add the egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (the batter should be slightly lumpy). Gently stir in the blueberries.

Step 2: Make Blueberry Pancakes

For standard-size blueberry pancakes, pour about ⅓ cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle ($17, Target) or heavy skillet. Spread the batter if necessary. For mini pancakes, use about 1 tablespoon batter.

Cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until pancakes are golden brown. Turn them over when the surfaces are bubbly and the edges slightly dry.

Step 3: Serve and Enjoy Blueberry Pancakes

Plate a few of the fluffy blueberry pancakes and serve them warm. Top with butter and maple syrup.

You can also fancy things up by pouring some blueberry-maple syrup over your hot griddled cakes. Or for a tasty upgrade to basic blueberry pancakes, try these tender blueberry-ricotta pancakes. For a healthier take, these blueberry buckwheat pancakes really hit the spot.
