From scratch Blueberry Pancakes recipe


We have a tradition at our house of having hot homemade breakfasts on Saturday mornings. My kids LOVE pancakes, so that is usually what they request. These blueberry pancakes are out of this world, and a new personal favorite!

So tender and flavorful. Fresh blueberries peeking out not only makes them pretty, but gives them that wonderful fresh berry flavor.

 How to make Homemade Blueberry Pancakes


  • flour
  • sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • milk
  • eggs
  • melted butter
  • vanilla extract
  • blueberries

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl, preferably a large bowl with a pourable spout. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir lightly to make sure you get tender pancakes. Don’t over-mix or the pancakes will be tough.

Spoon batter onto a griddle heated to medium heat, and sprinkle blueberries over the batter. Cook till bubbles form, then flip pancakes over and cook till golden brown. Serve hot with syrup.

Can I use frozen blueberries for pancakes?

I love baking with fresh blueberries, but they usually cost a fortune here in Utah, so I frequently use frozen berries in my pancakes, and they work just fine. If using frozen berries, you definitely don’t want to stir them into the batter, use the method below.

I happened to find some fresh blueberries on sale,  so I used them for these pancakes.

I added extra fresh berries to the top of the pancakes, and it was fantastic! The tartness of the berries with the sweetness of the syrup is a wonderful combination.

How do you add blueberries to pancakes?

Instead of adding my blueberries to the batter, I like to sprinkle them on top of the batter on the griddle. The pancakes turn out much prettier that way, and it’s easier to evenly distribute them.

What can I serve with my pancakes?

You can serve them with regular maple syrup, whipped cream, or jam. We are huge fans of buttermilk syrup, and I think it takes these blueberry pancakes over the top. Seriously, you must try it!

They are also tasty with other berries sprinkled on top, or even slices of banana. You can add whatever you like.

With the warm buttermilk syrup and the fresh berries on top, you will feel like you are eating breakfast at a fancy restaurant! But since you are making pancakes from scratch at home, you can totally eat them in your pajamas.

  1. Linda Beaulieu says

    Best pancakes ever. I put fresh picked blueberries on top while they were cooking. will only make these pancakes from now on

  2. I love a thicker pancake and these do not disappoint! This would be fabulous as a cobbler topping. I too sprinkle the blueberries on top of the pancake as it’s cooking for even distribution and so it doesn’t darken the batter. We used thinned lemon curd on top as syrup. We are in love with the flavor combo.
    The only change I made was used salted butter and .50 tsp of salt. It was the perfect balance of salty and sweet.

    Thank you! This one will be in our regular rotation for hot Saturday breakfasts!

  3. These are okay. Salty, too fluffy, thick, and hard… despite my light/soft stirring. I will not make these again.

  4. Do you really add 2 Tablespoons of Baking Powder? That seems like alot?

  5. Mollie Clarke says

    My husband was out of town last night so I made these blueberry pancakes and bacon for” silly supper” with my girlfriend.. They were really delicious and beautiful. Three Tablespoons of baking soda is a lot and probably why they were so fluffy. The batter was thick and pouring was not an option. The yield was excellent and the leftovers were devoured this morning by three women. Next time I want to try adding the zest and juice of one lemon. Thank you, Kara

  6. I’m so happy I found this recipe! I made this for my family Christmas Brunch we have every year, and I couldn’t keep up with the demand! They were a hit and SOOOO FLUFFY!!!!! For some reason, my initial batter was really thick, so I added an extra 3/4 cup of milk. Regardless, this is my new favorite!!!! Thank you so much for sharing with the world!

  7. These were ABSOLUTELY awesome!!!

  8. Sunny Sanoff says

    Super yummy! Light and fluffy.

  9. Vanetta Pinn says

    This is the best pancake recipe ever! It is absolutely fool proof. I added the juice and zest of a medium lemon and that kicked this recipe into the stratosphere❣

  10. Hello Kara,
    Your receipe is just amazing, first time in my life I was cooking pancakes and I had high expectations as I spent a couple of holiday in the US and had great memories of the delicious pancakes I have eaten there.
    I am French and I am currenltly travelling in Transylvania, Romania in a van and they sell delicious fresh blueberries for nothing here! So my boyfriend and I decided to bake some blueberry pancakes (my dream!), I found your receipe online and appeared to have all the ingredients on board, so this morning I baked the best blueberry pancakes I have evere eaten, with the buttermilk syrup that I made with a sort of creamy yogurt that I found here.
    Thank you so much for sharing your receipe! <3

    • How fun that you are trying new recipes while travelling. I love having yummy memories from the places I have visited. I’m so glad they turned out for you!!

  11. I need pancakes now! Plz help me! -bob

  12. Stephanie says

    Pancakes turned out surprisingly perfect!

    I’m surprised because my batter was very thick. Looking at the pictures and the directions to “pour” not scoop lol so I would say something is wrong. I just don’t know what. I followed the recipe exactly…. Did anyone else have this issue? Maybe my eggs were too small?

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you

    • It could be that your eggs were smaller than the ones I used. Or your flour could have been packed into the cup more tightly. But it’s okay if the batter varies a little as long as the pancakes turn out. 🙂

  13. Virginia says

    These were the best pancakes I think I have ever made! Thanks for the great recipe.

  14. Making these right now!
    Can extra batter be saved for a day or so, or should I just cook and reheat the pancakes? Thank you!

  15. I am always happy to hear when a whole family likes one of my recipes. That’s a win in my book! 🙂

  16. Alison Preve says

    Beautiful, fluffy, delicious pancakes!

  17. Just made these this morning and they are really fluffy and good! Thank you!!

  18. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pancake! They looks so fluffy and perfect. ❤️
