From Scratch Blueberry Pancakes Recipe - How to Make Blueberry Pancakes

blueberry pancakes

This recipe makes approximately 12 delicious blueberry pancakes from scratch.


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (frozen or canned also okay, but fresh preferred)

Cooking Procedure


1.  In a small bowl, beat eggs until well-mixed; set aside. This will be the batter bowl.

2.  In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

3.  Stir milk and melted butter into eggs.

4.  Stir the dry flour mixture into batter bowl; mix up until batter is smooth.

5.  Rinse blueberries in cool water and remove excess water with a colander or by gently dabbing with a paper towel.

6.  Carefully stir blueberries into the batter.

7.  On a hot greased griddle (over medium-low heat), pour whatever sized pancakes you like -- from silver dollar to plate-filler -- and flip when you see bubbles coming to the surface of the pancakes.  Brown lightly on both sides.  If pancakes cook too quickly, lower stovetop heat slightly.

This from-scratch blueberry pancake recipe makes 12 pancakes (more or less if you prefer smaller or larger flapjacks).  Maple syrup and a dash of powdered sugar makes it a real treat.  You can even throw a mint leaf on top if you're feeling crazy.  Enjoy!

Have a great breakfast and stop back by From Scratch Pancakes for more tasty pancake recipes!

How to Make Pancakes from Scratch

from scratch pancakesPancakes are so delicious on a sunny morning, with birds singing outside your window, money raining from the sky and a new day waiting to be experienced, but how do you make pancakes?

You could buy the frozen pancakes from your local grocery store, but why? You can make better tasting and healthier pancakes from scratch. And it costs less money! Making pancakes from scratch really isn't that hard to do.

Ingredients needed for making pancakes from scratch:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Cooking instructions:

  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together, breaking up any stuck-together bits.
  2. In another bowl, mix the milk together with the egg and then add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth and lump-free. Stir in in melted butter.
  3. Cook on a medium-hot, nonstick griddle or wide, flat pan, using about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake (or more if you want bigger pancakes!).
  4. Cook until you see a number of bubbles coming through the top of the pancakes and flip to lightly brown each side evenly.

The timing for flipping pancakes takes a little trial-and-error as each pan and stovetop are different, but it's better to flip a little early than to wait and incinerate your pancakes like a spent charcoal briquette. Pancakes are SO GOOD that this would be a tragedy. This recipe for serves 4 (or 2 hungry ultra breakfast lovers supreme).

Optional: If you prefer sweeter pancakes, you may add some sugar to the batter before cooking. A tablespoon is usually enough to give them a lightly sweet taste. Also, for a nice country flavor, a quick splash of vanilla extract can be mixed in.

I hope you enjoy your mouth-watering pancakes from scratch. There are so many ways to make pancakes... stay tuned for more great recipes (pancakes banana pancakes) and breakfast ideas that will please your tastebuds and save money!
