I love the way summery blueberries burst in my mouth like little purple balloons. Accompany these featherlight blueberry buttermilk pancakes with the classic pairing of butter and maple syrup or opt for more fruit and top with nectarine or peach slices, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkle of brown sugar.–Brigit Binns

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
- Quick Glance
- 25 M
- 1 H
- Makes 6 to 8 servings
- 2 cups (about 10 1/4 ounces) all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups (16 ounces) whole buttermilk (not low-fat)
- 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for the skillet
- 1 pint (8 ounces) blueberries
- 1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, beat together the eggs and buttermilk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon just until a smooth batter forms. Gently fold in the 4 tablespoons melted butter and the blueberries.
- 2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot or heat a griddle to 325°F. Brush the skillet or griddle with melted butter. For each pancake, ladle about 2 tablespoons batter onto the hot surface, using the back of the ladle or spoon to forming circles 4 to 5 inches (10 to 13 centimeters) in diameter. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. You may need to jiggle the heat of the burner up and down to keep the pancakes from burning before the tops are done. Flip the pancakes and cook until lightly browned on the second sides, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter or to waiting plates held by outstretched arms. Repeat until all the batter is used, brushing the hot surface with more butter as needed. Serve the pancakes right away.
