The fresh blueberries have been UNBELIEVABLY big and sweet this season - don't know if it is the warmer winter or what, but we've had a bumper crop of fabulous berries to work with, and I'm taking advantage of every opportunity! And there's nothing better than a plateful of thick and warm Fresh Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes - just busting with fresh blueberries!
And don't waste your time with frozen or canned blueberries - they will "sauce" up too much and stain your blueberry pancake batter a sickly blue shade. If you've ever ordered blueberry pancakes in a restaurant, you know what I mean - they usually just taste "meh......." These, on the other hand, are gonna explode with fresh blueberry juice and flavor in your mouth like poprocks or a firecracker! Your tastebuds will go nuts! Use fresh whole blueberries as soon as you pick them up from the market, and you'll be in for a treat!
You can drizzle with warm maple syrup or blueberry syrup, or even just slather with a shmear of butter. Lay a few extra fresh blueberries between pancake layers for even more fresh blueberry taste! These are a family-favorite recipe that has been handed down generation to generation! I hope that you give these a try while the crops are young and sweet, and love them as much as we do!
And I promise you, these will have everyone smiling - bite by delicious bite!
