FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Technically no you do not have to use buttermilk but using buttermilk in this Blueberry Pancake Recipe really makes them richer and gives a greater depth of flavor. You can use any milk that you like or you can make your own buttermilk. To do that take the 2 cups milk that you have on hand and add 2 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice, stir and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. Stir again and then use it in your recipe.
Absolutely, you can swap gluten free flour with all-purpose flour 1:1 in this recipe.
Both are absolutely fine. They both will give you the same flavor. It’s not always easy to find fresh blueberries that are in season and frozen blueberries are frozen at the peak of freshness. So if blueberries aren’t in season, use frozen. They do not need to be thawed but my only recommendation. would be to top them onto the pancakes when you put the batter into the skillet. This will keep them from sinking all to one side.
Blueberries do not lose their healthiness throughout the pancake cooking process. They are full of antioxidants which makes them a wonderful and healthy addition to your baked goods!
Yes. I would flash freeze them first. Lay the cooled pancakes out individually on a tray and put in the freezer for about 45 minutes to an hour. Then remove and you can easily stack them in a freezer safe bag and they won’t stick together. They will keep for up to 3 months. To defrost, remove to refrigerator overnight and then reheat in the microwave.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- salted butter
- granulated sugar
- vanilla extract
- fresh blueberries
HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY PANCAKES:
Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
To another large mixing bowl, add the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined.
Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and gently stir everything together until just combined. It’s ok if the mixture is a little lumpy.
Add the blueberries and gently fold them into the batter.
Heat a little oil in a large frying pan on a medium setting. Wait until the pan is nice and hot before adding the batter. Scoop approx. ¼ cup of the pancake batter into the pan and cook until browned on the bottom and bubbles are starting to appear all over the surface – about 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
Repeat with the remaining batter. You can fry 2-3 pancakes at a time in the pan to save time. Serve with maple syrup, butter, extra fresh blueberries or other fruits.
