Blueberry Pancakes - Video Recipe

 This is a flashback recipe. One of the first recipes on this food blog was a Blueberry Pancake. Click here to see my cheap consumer camera photos and primitive recipe layout and text. It's the same recipe from 2007 and it's just as delish. This is my stop motion video version.

I've been making pancakes with fresh fruit forever now and blueberries are so easy to get and cheap these days. I get mine from the 99c only Store

Blueberries are ready-to-go, just a quick rinse and put them right on a lightly oiled hot griddle or pan -- no peeling or seeds to remove. Finally pour on the pancake batter and cook until browned on both sides.

You can use frozen blueberries if you like. Defrosted they tend to be mushy so you can add them right into pancake batter. 

For the pancake batter, I use a commercial brand. If you have a homemade recipe then use it. I can get a large box of dry pancake mix at my local 99c only Store or Dollar Tree. Regular grocery stores sell it cheap enough, too.

Start your day right, with my quick and easy cheap$kate breakfast of Blueberry Pancakes.

Ingredients (2 servings, using a pancake mix)
  • 1 cup pancake mix - any favorite
  • 3/4 cup water - okay to use milk for a richer pancake batter.
  • 1/4 cup blueberries - add as many blueberries as you like per pancake, about a dozen or so.
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil - to grease skillet. Add more when needed, depending on how many pancakes you make.
  • Butter and favorite pancake syrup - add as much as you like.

Prepare pancake batter according to package directions. My pancake mix calls for 1 cup of flour and 3/4 cup of water.

Mix pancake ingredients in a bowl. When mixed it will be like thick country gravy.

(If you are using frozen blueberries it's okay to add right to the batter. Defrosted or not, as they will warm up during pancake cooking.)

Add a teaspoon of oil to pan or griddle. Heat the pan over medium heat.

Rinse fresh blueberries and arrange on hot pan or griddle. Add as many as you like, depending on the size of each pancake.

Brown pancakes 2 to 3 minutes each side, depending on pan heat. When you see air pockets then check the bottom of pancake to see how it's browning.

The instant box of pancake directions mentions cooking time to brown each side as 1.5 minutes each....hmmm, they must be using a super hot pan! Best to just check pancake for color as you go.

If you want a dark brown pancake presentation, then cook one side to get the right amount of brown, then cook the other side for a minute, to finish. Serve browned side up, on the plate.

I serve hot with melted butter and favorite pancake syrup.
