Bursting Blueberry Pancakes

There is nothing better on a Sunday morning than beginning the day with a great cup of coffee & homemade pancakes with fresh fruit. So again I turned to William Sonoma for a recipe, I've had great luck with everything I've made from the site.

These blueberry pancakes were wonderful - the heat makes the berries burst with sweetness, you could almost skip the maple syrup (but I didn't-LOL) Also, I halved the recipe, it made about 8-9 pancakes.

Blueberry-Buttermilk Pancakes
Willams Sonoma

2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
3 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 cups buttermilk
4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 to 2 Tbs. vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray
1 cup fresh blueberries
Confectioners’ sugar for dusting
Softened butter for serving
Warm maple syrup for serving


Preheat an oven to 200ºF. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs on medium speed until frothy. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. Stir just until the batter is smooth and no lumps of flour remain; do not over mix.

Heat an electric griddle to medium-high heat until a few drops of water flicked onto the surface skitter across it. Lightly grease the griddle with oil or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Using a batter dispenser set on the large setting, dispense the batter onto the griddle. Alternatively, ladle about 1/3 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Scatter 1 Tbs. blueberries evenly over each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, 1 to 2 minutes. Using a spatula, flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining pancakes.

Dust the pancakes with confectioners' sugar and serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

Makes about 16 pancakes; serves 4.

This makes me wish my man liked blueberries. He is anti-blueberries, especially in pancakes. :( Yours look really good!
