Every good morning should begin with these BLUEBERRY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES!

This post is all about the power of social media. A few months back, our Facebook friend Chris posted pictures of his blueberry pancakes. I sent him a DM asking if he’d share his recipe with Weekend at the Cottage and am sure glad I did. These BLUEBERRY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES do not disappoint. They’re so delish, I know you’re going to love them as much as we do.

Here are a few things we learned when we made them:

Ingredients for Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

INSIDE STORY

The list of the ingredients needed to make this recipe is standard pantry fare, nothing fancy. We brought our eggs to room temperature before we started and we also went out and purchased fresh buttermilk from a local dairy. Making the recipe with wild blueberries also gets a nod of approval for their particularly memorable flavour profile.

REST STOP

Since pancakes are oft-requested cottage weekend fare, it was important to get this right, so we tested the recipe a number of times. We found that making the batter and letting it rest for 30 minutes worked best. This gives the gluten a chance to react and settle down before the batter hits the heat.

SPACED OUT

The very first pancake I made for the story was all freestyle, loosey-goosey. I just tossed a bunch of blueberries onto the batter and continued. As it sat there cooking, I immediately knew this just wouldn’t do; the blueberries were all over the place. I learned my lesson and on the next round placed each blueberry carefully onto the batter, spacing them out evenly. Doing this ensures at least one blueberry in each bite.

HOT SURFACE

Getting the temperature right when you go to cook your pancakes is key. Again, we made them a number of times until we got it right. We found 375°F, whether you make them on a griddle or in a skillet, produced gloriously golden, evenly cooked pancakes.

SURPRISE ENDING

I’m still on board with the homemade blueberry pancake purists out there who will say the only way to enjoy them is with a knob of butter and pure Canadian maple syrup. But if you’d like to try something new, make our simple BLUEBERRY SYRUP. It’s not too sweet and adds even more blueberry flavour to these pancakes. Click that link and watch our 1-minute video on how to make it. It’s really easy.

Enjoy these pancakes for breakfast
