We have a huge blueberry bush in our backyard that has produced about five million blueberries this year. We’ve been eating them in everything from healthy shakes to our salads at night. A few days ago, I decided to try them in some pancakes. Before I did that though, I had to find a good pancake recipe. Ones I’ve tried in the past haven’t been up to snuff. The pancakes end up being somewhat dry and I just didn’t like them. I think I hit the jackpot with this most recent recipe though, so much so that I decided to share it here on this website.
I’m not sure which ingredient makes these pancakes so good, but I’ll tell you they really are delicious. Of course, the blueberries are fabulous. It’s almost as if they transform into something else as they’re cooking. So sweet and juicy. This recipe calls for one full tablespoon of baking powder, which helps them rise quite a bit. The pancakes aren’t dry at all and keep their form wonderfully. I guess it’s the combination of ingredients that does it. I’m not sure, but I’ll keep on making them.
1 1/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 1/4 Teaspoons White Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
1/2 Cup Fresh Blueberries + More For Serving
I’d like to thank AllRecipes for this recipe. While this is just one of many on their website, it may be my favorite.
Mix Dry Ingredients
In a medium sized bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Whisk everything together well.
Mix Wet Ingredients
In another bowl, add the egg and the milk. Whisk these ingredients together well and then add in the butter. Mix that in too.
Combine All Ingredients
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix everything together with a fork or rubber spatula. Then, add in the blueberries and fold them into the mixture.
Cook the Pancakes
Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add a touch of oil or butter for each pancake and then use a 1/4 cup measuring cup for each one. Fit as many as you can in the skillet and let them cook on each side until they lightly brown.
When finished, transfer the pancakes from the skillet to a plate.
Plate & Serve
Divide the pancakes between plates, add some blueberries around the pancakes and then pour some syrup over everything. Serve and enjoy!

To think, I was nervous about getting good photos of these things. Talk about being shocked when I was able to manage these. Not bad! Anyway, if you decide to try out these wonderful pancakes, please let me know your thoughts in the comment section below. Thanks for reading!
