Blueberry Buttermilk Recipe

Weekend mornings mean pancakes. After sleeping in, there’s nothing better than a tall, fluffy stack drizzled with warm maple syrup.

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Makes 16 pancakes


  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2¼ cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for cooking the pancakes and serving
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
  • Maple syrup, for serving


In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir just until the batter is smooth and no lumps remain; do not overmix. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the blueberries.

Set a large nonstick frying pan or griddle over medium heat and let the pan heat for about 2 minutes. Add 2 teaspoons butter to the pan and use a silicone spatula to spread it evenly over the surface. For each pancake, pour about ¼ cup batter into a round, about 3 inches in diameter; space the pancakes about 1 inch apart. Cook until the edges of the pancakes begin to look dry and the bottoms are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Slide a thin spatula under each pancake, carefully flip it over, and cook until golden brown on the second side, about 1 minute longer. Using the spatula, transfer the pancakes to a serving plate, stacking them about 3 high, and serve right away with butter and maple syrup. Cook the remaining batter in the same way, serving each batch of pancakes when ready.


Use pancake molds in fun shapes like hearts, stars, and flowers for a fancy touch. If you use pancake molds, follow the package directions for filling and cooking the batter.
