My boys LOVE pancakes. I certainly know they are not alone in their affection, because the BEST pancake recipe on my site is always a popular one! And of course, if plain pancakes are good, we all know BLUEBERRY PANCAKES might be better! And I’ve started quite the blueberry recipe collection here on my site! But honestly, if you top just about anything with butter and maple syrup you have a winner in my book…but seriously, if you want an amazing homemade blueberry pancakes recipe, look no further!

Homemade Blueberry Pancakes are Easier Than You Think!

Imagine a light fluffy pancake, skillet fried in a little butter, with gorgeous, sweet blueberries throughout, topped with a healthy drizzle of maple syrup. Seriously, does breakfast food get any better? These pancakes are golden and lightly crisp at the edges, with a soft, tender center. Blueberry Pancakes with fresh blueberries are most definitely not just for special occasions! The baking powder in this pancake recipe is what makes them so fluffy!

How To Make Blueberry Pancakes from scratch

How Do You Make Blueberry Pancakes?

Honestly, this pancakes recipe is about as easy as it gets. You, most likely, have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now…except maybe blueberries. Heat your skillet on medium-low. You don’t want it to be too hot, or your pancakes will brown way too fast, and then trying to flip them is a disaster!

The recipe includes:

  • flour
  • milk
  • brown sugar
  • salt
  • vanilla
  • baking powder
  • butter

Is that 2 TABLESPOONS Of Baking Powder Correct?

This is the question I  get asked the most about this recipe…how can 2 tablespoons be correct? I agree, that does seem like an awful lot. But this recipe makes a fairly large amount of pancakes…in fact you get twelve, thick and fluffy pancakes. I have tested this recipe time and time again and I have found that 2 tablespoons makes the exact type of pancakes I love.


  1. Make sure your baking powder is aluminum free! This will absolutely effect the way your pancakes taste. Using baking powder with aluminum raises health concerns as well as giving ANYTHING you bake a weird metallic taste that you absolutely want to avoid.
  2. Another baking powder MUST is checking the expiration date. When your baking powder has expired it won’t produce the same results as well as it can possibly add a strange flavor as well. Since you’re using so much baking powder in this you want to make sure you set yourself up for success!
  3. If you prefer a LESS thick pancake that is a simple fix! Just add in a few tablespoons more milk at a time and whisk up until your batter is a thinner consistency, resulting in a thinner pancake!
  4. With pancakes I like to cook them on medium-low! Low and slow is the way to go! If you cook these pancakes at too high a heat you will burn the outsides while the insides are raw. Since they are a thicker pancake, you want to make sure they are cooked all the way through!

Can You Use Frozen Blueberries in These Blueberry Pancakes?

Yep! I totally understand that blueberries aren’t always in season, so you can certainly use frozen blueberries…just make sure you thaw them first. I also recommend that once you thaw them, you pat them dry just so there isn’t too much extra moisture on the berries!

I know you are going to love these pancakes as much as we do! Enjoy!

This is the best pancake base recipe EVER. It’s now our family’s official pancake recipe. Literally the best pancakes I’ve ever tasted as everyone else on here has been saying. Thank you so much! Also for those of you that are reporting the baking powder amount is too much or tastes bad, purchase aluminum free baking powder or mix in a small amount of white vinegar (helps to basically turn the milk into buttermilk which counteracts that taste in baking powder — google for a more scientific answer.)

These are the best pancakes ever, ever!!! The perfect fluffiness. (You can not taste the baking powder at all.)

This recipe with its extreme amounts of baking powder, caused the tummy of my poor Marjory to expand with bloat. I advise everyone to take heed & do not, under any circumstances, feed these evil pancakes to your bird.

Delicious recipe one of the best I’ve ever tasted

Delicious, super fluffy pancakes!! I used 3/4 c whole wheat flour and the rest all purpose flour. I also added a small splash of orange extract because I love blueberries with citrus. This is a keeper!

This was the absolutely the worst pancake recipe that I have ever made. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. I would not use this one again.

Hi! I assume that these people who say 2 tablespoons are too much and that they can taste the baking powder have used the baking soda instead. They are two different things and if you use baking soda in a recipe which includes no sour ingredient then it tastes awful.

Finally! A pancake recipe that works 🙂

I don’t write reviews often, but I had to for this recipe. These are the best pancakes I have ever eaten. My husband and I have made them a special treat after mountain biking on the weekends. The thought of these pancakes has powered me through some tough rides! Trust the recipe. I have used regular and GF flour, almond milk and oat milk, butter and ghee. I use Morton’s salt and the baking soda as written in the recipe. I never measure my blueberries, but I put about as many as I can fit on each one. Perfect every… Read more »

I also made half the recipe and was very careful with the measurements but they came out too salty. I still ate them because there were delicious. Was wondering if when I make them again can I leave out the salt or put in less baking powder?

Google search:
Good rule of thumb: I usually use around 1 teaspoon of baking powder per 1 cup of flour in a recipe.
You have tablespoon. That’s a lot and a health risk. You need to know that this can cause problems. Too much baking powder in your recipe. If not changed I will have to report you.

You ARE joking, right??? Something that might be a health issue for you won’t be an issue for anyone else! I have health problems, too, & I’ve learned to adapt recipes to prevent problems. But, I don’t expect everyone else to change a recipe just because I have an issue. Use whatever amount of baking powder works for you & enjoy the recipe!
