Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

January 28: National Blueberry Pancake Day

Pancakes are a basic breakfast and brunch fare. Adding fresh blueberries and buttermilk in the batter make them go from boring to better! These fluffy flapjacks are filling enough even for our dinnertime when we eat a stack of them with sausage or bacon and eggs. Prepare pancakes with blueberries and buttermilk for an easy and hearty meal—they are “berry good” any time of the day and especially on its own food holiday, National Blueberry Pancake Day.

Gently fold in the blueberries. Heat on medium (not high) a flat pan (skillet or griddle) with a little oil or butter. Pour the batter onto the pan to about 5-inches in diameter. After some bubbles appear on the surface, flip it over and cook for a few more minutes, being careful not to burn the pancakes (they should be golden brown and not any darker). Repeat until the batter is used up, adding a little more oil or butter in the pan, if needed. Serve stacked on a plate with syrup and extra blueberries.

  • We halved the the recipe for the two of us. It was enough to make about seven 5-inch sized pancakes.
  • Some cooks like to ladle the pancake batter without the blueberries in the pan.  Once poured onto the pan, arrange some blueberries on top. Flip the pancake over and finish cooking.
