The Best Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

I am such a sucker for visuals. I saw these pancakes being made on a cooking show this morning (Cookworks), dashed out to buy fresh blueberries, and made these for dinner tonight. They did not disappoint! Try them; they're delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Please note that you'll also need additional unsalted butter to grease your skillet (you could also use nonstick cooking spray like Pam; I did some with butter and some with Pam and all worked fine and tasted great).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt (I do this through a sieve, not with a sifter).
  3. After melted butter has cooled down, beat the eggs with the buttermilk in a separate bowl then whisk in the melted butter.
  4. Using a wooden spoon or a spatula, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine just until you have a lumpy batter; do NOT overmix.
  5. Over medium-high heat, heat some butter in a large skillet (you could use a griddle too, of course).
  6. For each pancake, use a generous 1/4 cup of batter; after spooning batter into skillet, sprinkle top of each pancake with blueberries and press them in slightly.
  7. I was quite generous with sprinkling the blueberries, then when I got to my last pancake I found I didn't have many left, so you may want to have some extra blueberries on hand.
  8. Cook each pancake for approximately 2 minutes per side; the length of time will depend on how hot you have the heat, how well your skillet retains the heat, etc.
  9. Keep pancakes warm in a low oven as you make them, then serve; best when served with real maple syrup.

At first I was a little bit worried about these pancakes because they went on the griddle very thin, but then they poofed up very nicely. They had a really delicious taste and I will definately be using this recipe again. Thanks for posting!

these were wonderful!! the only changes, 1 cup whole wheat white flour and 1 cup all purpose, 2 tsp pure lemon extract, and I used 16 oz frozen blueberries. I put the frozen berries in the dry ingredients and mix to coat then add the wet ingredients, this way the berries dont clump. YUM YUM thanks
