Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

6 Apr

These pancakes are super delicious and perfect with blueberries or any springtime fruit you’d like to substitute. I really craved some of IHOP’s blueberry syrup with these guys. That’s my usual order there – a small stack with loads of blueberry syrup. I wonder if they’d sell some of the syrup to me? 🙂

So, if you want to really give it a blueberry punch, you could use blueberry syrup too! (homemade or store bought, we won’t judge) *Mental note: must find recipe for homemade blueberry syrup

Here’s another blue thing that makes me really happy – gotta love bluebonnets growing in my yard! Springtime in Texas is great 🙂

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

1 cup Flour
4 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 cup Buttermilk
1/8 cup Milk
1 whole Large Egg
2 Tbsp Melted Butter
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
2 cups Blueberries (or other fruit/addition)

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, egg, melted butter, and lemon juice. Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. You can flick water across the surface and if it beads up and sizzles, it’s ready! Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, using a wooden spoon or large fork to blend. Stir until it’s just blended together. Do not over stir! If you over stir, the pancakes will be tough and flat; you want little dry lumps left in the batter, trust me. Either add the blueberries to the batter and carefully mix, or sprinkle on top of the batter when it’s on the griddle or pan. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle. (about 1/3 cup each) Brown on both sides and serve hot.
