This blueberry pancakes recipe is easy

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 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

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!

I made these Blueberry Pancakes yesterday and they were delicious! My family loved them! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out amazing. They really didn’t need any syrup, they tasted so good. We had a few left over and they even tasted great cold the next day straight out of the refrigerator.

I was looking for a good recipe for blueberry pancakes, then stumbled upon this one. I followed the recipe exactly, and they were AMAZING! Thank you so much for this! I will definitely make this again!

I first wanted to make blueberry waffles but didn’t know how to operate the waffle maker so I decided to search for blueberry pancakes and picked the highest rating. Turned out absolutely AMAZING. My brother, who is 3 years old, ate 4 extra-large ones!!! I, a ten year old, could only fit 5 in my stomach! My mom and dad ‘dinosaured’ them down!

2 tablespoons of baking powder? Wowser! Made recipe as written and could not believe the overehelming taste of baking powder. . . then I went back and studied the recipe. Did you really mean tablespoons? ‘Cause that’s a ton.

Googled Blueberry Pancakes as I had bought several boxes of blueberries on sale and didn’t have my usual pancake mix in the pantry. Glad I picked this 5 star recipe. The best pancakes I’ve ever had! I will never buy mix again. Off the chart delicious!!! Look forward to your other recipes.

Perfect pancakes! These were the best pancakes i have ever made. The batter was nice and thick; after i defrosted the blueberries i poured out the extra juice before adding them . Turned out nice and fluffy

I tried to make this twice and it came out terrible each time. Too watery. Maybe I did it wrong but it was disgusting.

I just made today and was super fluffy. How long did you stir it? The less time you’re mixing the wet and dry ingredients together the better. I hope it works out!

I have another recipe that I’ve used for years but decided to branch out this once. Turns out I’ve been using the wrong recipe all this time! These turned out light and buttery – think Cracker Barrel blueberry pancakes without the plate full of excess grease. Cooked in a cast iron skillet (of course), lightly drizzled with maple syrup at the table. Thawed some frozen blueberries to add, they worked well but I imagine fresh would be even better. We threw the cooked ones in the oven at 275 on a plate to keep them ready until serving, my skillet… Read more »

Two TABLESPOONS baking powder? Not teaspoons?

I don’t usually rate recipes, but this one was so amazing I had to come back to let everyone else know! This recipe makes terrific pancakes! I also mixed the berries into the batter, like other people have reported doing, but that was mostly just a short-cut for me; I’m sure the recommended method would make them even more perfect. The pancakes came out very fluffy and light, and sweet enough that we often don’t even need syrup. Fantastic!

These were awesome! I halved the recipe since it was just me and a friend but I still had four leftover that I’ll freeze and eat for a quick breakfast . I mixed the blueberries right into the batter. This will definitely be my new pancake recipe. Thanks.

I made these pancakes after reading several comments. I then came up with a few alterations and I must say these pancakes are absolutely delicious. I adjusted the baking powder to one and a half tablespoons, the brown sugar to two tablespoons and the salt to a half teaspoon.

Our pancakes didn’t get fluffy at all. There was too much baking powder in them and they tasted very salty

What can I do with extra batter?
Can I make muffins from it?
