Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

This is a winner recipe for quick and easy buttermilk pancakes. Fluffy, crispy on the edges and soft in the middle with mouthwatering blueberries peaking through - those are by far my favorite buttermilk pancakes. I'm not sure where I got this recipe from, it's been in my folder for some time now. I never really felt the need to make homemade pancakes. But lately I got tired of the store bought pancake mix that was not that great at all, and finally decided to make the real, homemade pancakes. Smothered with real butter and maple syrup, paired with a crispy slice of grilled ham creates a perfect combination for Sunday's brunch.

Buttermilk Pancakes

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 TBS. sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2-3 TBS. melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat a pan or a griddle. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until combined. In a separate bowl mix eggs, milk, buttermilk, sugar and melted butter and vanilla until well mixed. Combine flour mixture with the egg mixture and mix together to get a batter consistency without larger lumps, but do not over mix it. It's ok to have some small lumps in your pancake mix. Mix in 1 cup of fresh blueberries. {I do not add fruit to my mix until the mix is poured on the pan or griddle, once the pancakes starts cooking, i add 5-8 blueberries per pancake, depends on the size of pancakes.} Pour on griddle and cook until the pancakes appear bubbly, turn and cook another 2 minutes. Serve with butter, maple syrup, yogurt or fresh fruit - whatever you like.

I can't remember the last time I had pancakes of any kind and I don't think that I ever had ones made with buttermilk. You have me curious!
