Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Is there anything better than sleeping in on a Saturday morning and waking up to a stack of fluffy, buttermilk pancakes, fresh off of the griddle, dripping with maple syrup and butter? We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to whomever invented cake we can have for breakfast.

Furthermore, I’m also feeling a certain fondness toward the person who invented powdered buttermilk. I used it for the first time to make these Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes and I was so pleased with how light and flavorful they came out. I always feel so guilty when I have to pour out half a carton of real buttermilk because I can’t use it all. The powdered kind lasts much longer so you can use as much or as little as you need without waste. It’s definitely going to be a refrigerator staple of mine from now on.

With plump, juicy summer blueberries appearing in the markets, I couldn’t help but add them into the mix. Surely the antioxidants count toward making these “healthy”, right? 🙂

  1. Oh surely you can find a way to use extra buttermilk…biscuits, cakes, cookies, cupcakes! More pancakes. 🙂 They sound oh so good. You know, sometimes we cheat if we don’t want to buy an entire carton of buttermilk. The old milk + vinegar trick does work!

    What a great idea…powdered buttermilk! I shy away from recipes that call for buttermilk for the same reason as you–I can’t use it up before it goes bad. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this in my local grocery store, although I don’t have high hopes that I’ll find it in my small town in Kentucky.

    I was going to make biscuits this morning, but realized I was out of butter. So since I have some SACO powdered buttermilk on hand, I decided to look up a buttermilk pancake recipe and make those instead. I followed your recipe exactly, except I don’t have any blueberries on hand, so I made up a small batch of strawberry jam to eat with them. These pancakes were fluffy and delicious!
