Blueberry Pancake Recipe


Last Saturday, both Mr. Handsome and I woke up craving blueberry pancakes. I still had a large bag of frozen blueberries that I had picked in early July, so we decided to go for it. I pulled out a basic pancake recipe that I have had since childhood and tweaked it. Both of us loved the result!

Blueberry Pancakes

1/2 cup flour (I use white whole wheat--a mixture of white and whole wheat)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon olive oil
Oil or butter to grease griddle/pan (I use coconut oil)
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, salt, and baking powder Stir to blend. In a bowl with a spout, combine egg, milk, and olive oil. Whisk mixture until blended. Add dry ingredients to wet, and stir to combine, being careful not to overwork.


Fold in blueberries. 


Grease pan or griddle with oil or butter, and heat 2 minutes over medium heat before adding pancake batter. Pour 3-4 inch pancakes onto cooking surface. Flip when air bubbles form and a few have burst (approximately 3 minutes per side, depending on heat level). 


Remove from heat, and add desired toppings.

    I usually just mix the batter and start the pancakes going in the pan, then immediately drop some berries on top of each pancake. That way, you don't get the purple batter that comes from berries being mixed into the batter, and you are assured each cake has a good amount of both batter and berries.

    1. Yep, that's another way to do it. The one downside with that is that the blueberries aren't fully covered in batter, so you may end up with some of them sticking to the pan and making burnt blueberry mush when you flip.

      I've found that can still happen, even if the blueberries are in the batter. Just one of the risks of any berry pancake.

    Love blueberry pancakes with a ground pork patty and coffee. Ellie, I see that you also like lots of blueberries in you pancakes. I also drop the blueberries on the batter in the skillet...Jane

    1. Yep, that's one way to do it. The more blueberries the better! You can also add chocolate chips (with or without blueberries). Yum!

    They look good Ellie. I have a question for you, Ellie. I went to type a comment on the Duggar blog and when I clicked on publish a google box jumped up and demanded my email address at google. I don't use a google account and I guess my comment didn't go through. Is this going to stay like this at your Duggar blog? I would really like to comment on your Duggar blog site.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for reaching out. Sorry to hear you have been having technical difficulties. Here's what I suggest: Before you write the comment, set the "Comment As" to "Name/URL." Then type your name (or a nickname, if you prefer) and push "Continue." Then type your comment, and push "Publish," and it should work. Why don't you do a test and I'll tell you if it goes through. Perhaps type something like "Hi Ellie" in the comment field. I won't publish it, but I'll let you know if I received it. :)

    2. Thanks Ellie. I sent a message like you said on the Duggar blog. It went without a google box popping up.

    Wow, those look great! I've done a similar recipe with my gluten-free pancakes. And I found a recipe for Blueberry Pancake Bites, which is pretty much pancakes in muffin form. They work really good; if you want pancakes on the go, you can just dip them in syrup or honey or whatever. Enjoy.

    1. Hi Godly-Young-Widow,

      If you don't mind me asking, how long have you been gluten-free for?
