Blueberry Pancakes Recipe-

Pancakes are a great way to start off the day and they are so easy to make, have these pancakes ready in under 30 minutes!

These fluffy pancakes are a spin on our basic pancake batter with added blueberries and lemons. It’s a great recipe when you want something a little extra, yet still so easy to make.


  1. Mix dry ingredients– Sift together flour, baking powder and salt, then set aside.
  2. Whisk wet ingredients– In a bowl, whisk together sugar, milk, lemon juice, egg, and cooled melted butter until well combined.
  3. Combine wet and dry– Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until combined, but still a little lumpy. You don’t want to overmix the batter.
  4. Add blueberries– With a spatula, gently fold in the blueberries.
  5. Cook pancakes– In a skillet, cook the pancakes until crispy and golden.
  6. Serve pancakes– Top the pancakes with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
CHEF’S TIP– For faster cook time use two skillets to get all pancakes cooking at the same time. We also love using THIS griddle with the lid of a mason jar as molds.


These pancakes are so much better when topped with toppings! Here are some of our favorite topping ideas:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Whipped cream
  • Classic maple syrup
  • Butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Jam


Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes, These are great with frozen berries too! You do not need to thaw them.

Can I substitute blueberries?

If you don’t want to use blueberries, you can substitute them for raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries!

Can I prepare these pancakes ahead of time?

Just prepare the batter and store in the fridge until ready to use, make the batter the night before and all you need to do is cook them in the morning!

When do I know the pancakes are ready to be flipped?

Once the pancakes begin to bubble, you know they are ready to be flipped.

Can I freeze these pancakes?

FREEZE- These blueberry pancakes are wonderful to freeze. Once the pancakes have cooled, transfer them to a freezer bag and freeze.

How to reheat pancakes?

Reheat in the oven, microwave, or toaster oven until warmed.

How to get thick pancakes?

For thick pancakes, use mason lid bands as molds. Pour batter into the bands and when you flip the pancake remove the lid.
