Now, let’s talk about the ingredients.
Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes Ingredients:
These blueberry pancakes are made with simple basic pantry ingredients and loaded with blueberries which are one of the most popular of summer fruits.
To make these hotcakes, you will need the following ingredients: all-purpose flour (can be substituted with gluten-free flour), melted butter, eggs, milk, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract.
The salt and sugar play an important part as a flavor enhancer so your pancakes will not come out bland.
In this recipe, I used 2 tablespoons of sugar. I think that is a pretty good amount of sugar because most people usually serve pancakes with Maple syrup, so I don’t feel a need to add more. The blueberries will also boost the sweetness of the pancakes. However, if you are not a big fan of maple syrup feel free to add more sugar according to your liking.
Blueberries are low in calories and an antioxidant-rich fruit that may provide several health benefits. I absolutely love them!
I highly recommend using fresh blueberries because they are in season now. If you only have frozen blueberries on hand, feel free to use those too. Just be sure to thaw the frozen blueberries and drain to remove any liquid before adding them to your pancakes.

How to Make the Fluffiest Blueberry Pancakes:
Here are the most important things to know if you want to make fluffier pancakes:
- Use baking powder as one of the ingredients.
- Do not overmix the batter. Some lumps are okay!
- Let the batter rest for 15 minutes before cooking.
- Do not make the batter too far in advance. If you want to make the blueberries pancakes in a big batch, just cook the batter ahead of time, then freeze the cooked pancakes and simply reheat whenever you want to eat them.
Also, please note that berries can easily burn against the heat of the pan as you cook your pancakes. For this reason, I highly recommend adding the berries after you first pour the batter in the pan instead of folding them in the batter.
You can cook these pancakes in the griddle or a wide heavy-bottomed skillet pan.
My kids went crazy for this recipe, they thought the pancakes were much better than even the ones we’ve enjoyed out at restaurants or hotels. I think that’s all due to how fluffy they come out, which really does improve the taste, too.
The taste of the juicy blueberries definitely doesn’t hurt, either! I may be biased but I really do enjoy fluffy pancakes more than those that you’ll find most everywhere else. Please give these a try!
Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- ¾ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup butter (melted and cooled down to just above room temperature)
- ¾-1 cup fresh blueberries (or more as needed)
- clarified butter or vegetable oil/spray (as needed)
- In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract for about 3 minutes until foamy. Stir in the melted butter just until it combines.
- Add flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Stir the dry and wet ingredients until just incorporated together (some lumps are okay).Set aside and allow to rest for 15 minutes. The batter will thicken a bit as it stands. If you find the batter is too thick, just add about 1 tablespoon of extra milk into the batter at a time until reaching the desired consistency.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. When it's hot enough, drop about ¼ cup full of batter onto the pan. Sprinkle about 1 tbsp or more blueberries atop of each pancake.Flip the pancake when you see the bubbles pop and form holes that stay open on the surface of the pancake.
- Serve with maple syrup. Enjoy!
