5 reasons these are the BEST Blueberry Pancakes
- Amazingly Fluffy! Letting the batter rest before cooking them up really creates incredibly fluffy pancakes! Which is one of the reasons these are the best blueberry pancakes I’ve ever had!
- Toppings! Coat the warm pancakes with butter, drizzle on some maple syrup, or scoop on a heaping serving of whipped cream!
- Easy Ingredients! This recipe uses ingredients you likely already have right inside your pantry!
- Swap Out The Blueberries! Trade the blueberries in for raspberries or chocolate chips! You could also just enjoy them plain!
- Make Them Ahead Of Time! The batter can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days which means you can take some of the work out of a homemade breakfast! Just simply add in the blueberries right before cooking the blueberry pancakes!
Homemade Blueberry Pancakes Ingredients
You likely have all you need to make this Blueberry Pancake Recipe right on hand since it calls for mostly pantry staple ingredients! To whip up a batch you’ll need:
- All-purpose flour
- Granulated sugar
- Baking powder
- An egg
- Vegetable oil
- Whole milk
I prefer using fresh blueberries if I happen to have some on hand but I’ve also used frozen blueberries and they’ve tasted just as great! If you opt to use frozen blueberries just remove them from the freezer when you start to make the batter and once you’re ready to add them in they’ll be thawed.
Blueberry Pancake Recipe Toppings
Once you’ve taken the final pancakes off the griddle you can gather up the delicious toppings! When I make them I like serving them with butter, maple syrup (Runamok is my favorite!), whipped cream, and some fresh blueberries!
How To Make Blueberry Pancakes From Scratch
Step 1: Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and set the bowl aside.
Step 2: Beat the egg until frothy in a separate bowl and then mix in the oil and milk.
Step 3: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, being careful to gently mix until just combined. Allow the batter to rest.
Step 4: Fold in the blueberries gently with a rubber spatula.
Step 5: Heat a skillet or griddle to low-medium heat (275 degrees F) and coat it with oil. Use a measuring cup to pour the batter onto the heated, coated griddle.
Step 6: Cook each pancake until the bottom is golden brown and bubbles begin to pop on the top. Flip them over and cook the other side – I recommend using a large Pancake Spatula (affiliate link). Serve and enjoy hot with butter and syrup!
How To Store Blueberry Pancakes
If you have any leftover homemade blueberry pancakes you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Eat them within 2 to 3 days!
Can I Freeze These Pancakes Once They’re Cooked?
Yes, you can! Wrap them in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and then store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
How to reheat Blueberry Pancakes
You can easily reheat them in the microwave oven for about 10 seconds per pancake. You could also reheat them in the oven on a foil-lined cookie sheet for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees F.
Best Blueberry Pancakes Recipe FAQs
If you really love fluffy pancakes as much as I do I wouldn’t skip this step! I find that when I let the batter rest the pancakes turn out incredibly fluffy!
I love the taste of fresh blueberries in pancakes. However, you can use frozen as well! To use frozen, I’d suggest first allowing them to thaw and then rinsing them under cold water. Then, pat them dry with a paper towel.
This will prevent the frozen berries from adding extra liquid to the batter.
Tossing the berries in a little flour or cornstarch can help keep them suspended in the batter. Or you can drop the blueberries onto each pancake once they’re on the skillet or griddle.
No, cutting up blueberries to add them to the pancake batter is not necessary.
