This is a fantastic pancake, the buttermilk and sour cream makes these very tender. This recipe can also be make with fresh only (not frozen) chopped strawberries. The pancake even made without the fruit is just as wonderful. Can add in a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract to the batter if desired. I have made these many times omitting the fruit and froze the pancakes to have later, they freeze wonderful. You will love these!

Delicious and hearty pancakes! I used only 2 tablespoons of sugar and I thought they were sweet enough that way. The sour cream gives these a lovely rich taste that's great with the blueberries. Thanks for posting the recipe!

I made this exactly as written with thawed frozen blueberries. It was absolutely great! The pancakes were plenty sweet without adding any extra sugar. The pancakes are thick, so it helps to spread them out to make sure they cook through. I simply pour the batter onto the griddle then I swirl the spoon to thin out the pancakes.

I used frozen blueberries that I put on Defrost in the microwave and then drain. I'll try it this summer with fresh blueberries. It was really good. We ate them with maple syrup. Thanks Kit :) Made for Zaar Star Game.
