So, I must confess. Although I’ve made this recipe many times, I did not make what is in the photo. My 13 year old son made them for the family. He loves pancakes. He would eat them every day if I let him. Really, we all love pancakes. I’ve tried many pancake recipes in my day and none really made fluffy pancakes. This recipe, due to the large amount of baking powder, yes 5 teaspoons, get a great fluff to them. It’s that fluff that make them conducive to blueberries. Don’t put the blueberries in the pancake until you start to get some bubbles. As soon as you see bubbles, drop about 4 – 5 berries per pancake. Blueberries happen to be in season now but I’ve also successfully used frozen blueberries. It’s because of my husband’s love of blueberries that this became Dad’s Favorite Blueberry Pancakes recipe.
Now, my husband and youngest son love blueberries but my oldest, who I am happy to report is taking an interest in cooking, does not. He prefers chocolate chips, which also work well in this recipe. This batter would hold up to pecans too.
If you are a real blueberry lover, you can whip up my blueberry syrup to use instead of maple syrup. Now it’s blueberry overload pancakes!
