Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries


I woke up this morning to the sound of freezing rain falling into the trees in the woods behind my house.

iceSince my children had a two hour delay for school, I suddenly had the urge to make pancakes. I have an amazing go to recipe that is so easy to make and very versatile if you want to add blueberries, chocolate chips or whatever flavors you like. My kids like their pancakes plain with blueberries on the side and I like them with pure maple syrup.

Here is the recipe:

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes (adapted from Cooks Illustrated)


2 Cups Flour
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 Large Egg
2 cups Buttermilk
Cookie Scoop
Fresh Blueberries
Pure Maple Syrup

Step 1: Whisk Dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Step 2: Mix buttermilk and egg together in a separate bowl.


Step 3: Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and mix gently. Do not over mix. Leaving a few small lumps will cause the pancakes to be fluffier.


Step 4: Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt a small amount of butter the pan and scoop batter into the griddle with a cookie scoop.


Step 5: Cook until large bubbles appear and flip.
