 Delicious Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes are the perfect breakfast any day of the week!

Besides for dessert, I think our family loves breakfast the most.  I’m pretty sure Bryce dreams about breakfast.  Most nights when I tuck him he wants to know what’s for breakfast and if I don’t know (gasp!) he always has plenty of suggestions for me.  Sausage gravy, biscuits, breakfast burritos, and at least once a week – Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes.  I think the boys have become a little bit spoiled from their weekend excursions to Grandma and Grandpa’s house.  Breakfasts there consist of sausage, eggs, pancakes, and potatoes EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING.

When the boys come back home, I am constantly reminded of what Grandpa makes for them each morning.  Apparently I’m a total slacker.  One way I can get back into their good graces is with yummy Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes.  Bursting with berry flavor, they are downright delicious and I feel like one heck of a mommy whipping these up for the boys.  I know I’ll never quite match the breakfasts at Grandma and Grandpa’s house – but I do what I can :)

I’m sure with summer almost here {two more days of school!}, I’ll be making a lot more of these pancakes.

If you don’t have any blueberries this recipe is also fantastic with the berries omitted.  You could also sub in cherries, strawberries – pretty much any fruit will work!  Make sure to serve these pancakes with real maple syrup – it totally makes a difference!

  21. SIMPLY DELICIOUS! Easy recipe to follow and the pancakes where so super moist & my family loved them! I also tried some without the blueberries for a few in my family preferred without blueberries & they were great. My daughter made a blueberry compote & real whipped cream to top it off. Excellent.

    Do you really cook on medium high? Mine get too brown and not done in the

  23. Jasmin M says:

    Am I able to use self rising flour? What changes v would I need to make?

  24. These were pretty good! Can you substitute lemon zest for lemon extract? I’m also wondering if you could list the nutritional facts for this!
