Ingredients & Variations
PANCAKE BATTER This batter is the perfect base for pancakes! You can mix your dry ingredients ahead of time or even make your own homemade pancake mix as a base.
Mix in your favorite extracts (a touch of almond extract is great in this recipe) or even some lemon zest for a change in flavor.
For easy substitutions, you can also replace the maple syrup with honey or agave. Out of butter? You can use canola oil or vegetable oil in place.
BLUEBERRIES Frozen blueberries will work perfectly, but in the summertime, there’s nothing like fresh blueberries that are sweet, plump, and juicy!
While they won’t be blueberry pancakes without blueberries this recipe is the perfect base for any berries! Mix in some blackberries, raspberries, or even strawberries!
How to Make Blueberry Pancakes
For a happy and hearty breakfast, just follow these three quick steps!
- Whisk the dry ingredients together in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another.
- Add wet to dry and stir until just moistened (per recipe below).
- Pour batter on a hot griddle, sprinkle with blueberries, and cook about two minutes each side.
Tips for Success
- The best tip for fluffy delicious pancakes is to not over mix your batter! Overmixing will cause your pancakes to be chewy and dense instead of fluffy and airy.
- Drop the blueberries onto the wet batter in the pan instead of stirring it in.
- Cook just until the bubbles forming on the pancakes start to pop and then flip.
- To avoid blue pancakes (from the leftover blueberry juice on the griddle), wet a paper towel and using tongs, wipe the griddle before cooking the next batch.
Refrigerate: If there are leftover blueberry pancakes, keep them in an airtight container.
Freeze: Stack them with parchment paper between them and place them in a zippered bag with the date on it. Lay the bag flat in the freezer and when they are frozen, the bag can be placed upright to save freezer space. Pull out one or more to thaw and reheat!
Reheat: Pull out one or more to thaw and reheat! Simply pop them in the microwave!
