INGREDIENTS FOR SUPER FLUFFY BLUEBERRY PANCAKES

As mentioned above, most of the ingredients are probably in your pantry. Grab a container of fresh blueberries and you are good to go!

SELF-RISING FLOUR – Adds that extra fluffiness to the pancakes. Substitute with AP flour (may not be quite as fluffy).

BAKING POWDER – Helps to create thick and fluffy pancakes.

BLUEBERRIES – Fresh, or even frozen will work in this Homemade Pancake Recipe. Can be substituted with your favorite berry. Bananas and/or chocolate chips are also great alternatives.

LEMON ZEST – Although not called for in this Blueberry Pancake recipe, lemon zest would be a great addition.

VANILLA – Also, a great addition to the pancake batter!

BUTTER FOR FRYING – I prefer salted, but unsalted will also do!

TOPPINGS – Go traditional with butter and warmed maple syrup. Alternatively, top with whipped cream, extra berries, jam, or peanut butter. The possibilities are endless!

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the self-rising flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the sugar and melted butter, until light and frothy. Add the 1 cup of the milk and and whisk until well combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over mix – a few lumps are okay.
  4. If the batter is too thick, add in the remaining 1/4 cup milk.
  5. Coat the blueberries in the flour and gently fold in the blueberries.
  6. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Use a ladle to pour batter onto the pan, making pancakes about 3-4 inches in diameter.
  7. Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as warmed maple syrup, whipped cream, and/or extra blueberries.

TIPS ON MAKING SUPER FLUFFY BLUEBERRY PANCAKES

  • If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own by mixing 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour with 2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • For extra fluffiness, separate the egg and beat the whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the beaten egg whites into the batter just before cooking the pancakes.
  • Do NOT over mix! It’s ok to have a few lumps. Over mixing pancake batter can cause tough and chewy pancakes.
  • You can substitute the blueberries for other berries, such as raspberries or blackberries. Diced bananas, chocolate chips, and/or nuts are also great substitutes.
  • If using frozen blueberries (no need to thaw), do NOT mix them in the batter. Add them to the batter once you’ve ladled it into the pan.
  • Add in lemon zest, vanilla, or cinnamon for extra flavor.
  • Pan or griddle should not be too hot. Medium heat is best!
  • Top with warmed maple or blueberry syrup, extra butter, and/or your favorite toppings!
  • Leftover Pancakes can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. To reheat, simply pop them in the toaster or microwave.

Helpful Tools to Prepare Pancakes!

  • Sifter – Not necessary to make these breakfast pancakes, but may be helpful when using clumpy flour.
  • Whisk – A kitchen must-have in all sizes
  • Spatula – Great for folding in the blueberries into the pancake batter, and scraping the bowls (a set in all shapes and sizes)
  • Glass Mixing Bowls – I use these daily!
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons – Take a look at these magnetic measuring spoons!
  • Non-Stick Pan and/or Electric Griddle – Loving this HexClad non-stick pan (so worth the investment)

How to know when to flip?

For me, this is the most difficult part to making a perfect, Fluffy Pancake. In fact, I am sure the most intimidating part of pancake making for most people. After you ladle the pancake batter into the pan of warm melted butter, you will notice the edges will bubble, and become crispy and brown.

Once you notice bubbles on the entire surface of the pancake, you are ready to flip! The pancake should flip easily. Cook for just about a minute more and you will have the fluffiest and most perfect pancakes, every single time!

HOW TO FREEZE PANCAKES

Double this Super Fluffy Blueberry Pancake recipe, so that you can enjoy pancakes as an easy breakfast. Flash freezing works best to ensure the pancakes do not stick together. Once cooked and cooled, place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and into the freezer for about an hour.

Store in an airtight container making sure to separate the pancakes with wax paper or parchment paper. Store in freezer for up to three months.

As mentioned above, reheat frozen pancakes in a toaster, in a single layer in the oven at 350° for about 8 minutes, or in the microwave (not the best option as they may become soggy) for 20 seconds.
