Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8 pancakes


  • 1 & ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 & ¼ cups buttermilk * see note for substitutions
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons neutral flavored oil or melted butter, plus more for cooking the pancakes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk to combine, and set aside. In a separate bowl or measuring cup, whisk together your buttermilk, egg, and oil.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients and whisk together until just combined. Take care not to over mix! A few lumps are perfectly normal! Fold your blueberries into your pancake batter, and set aside to prep your skillet.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Brush the bottom of your pan with some more vegetable oil. Ladle in your pancake batter (about ¼ cup per pancake). Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on the first side, or until the top starts to bubble and the edges lose their shine. The bottom should also be golden brown.
  • Flip your pancake and cook for another minute, or until golden brown on the other side. Transfer your cooked pancakes to a wire rack or plate. Repeat the cooking process until all of your pancake batter is used up.


* You can use regular milk in place of the buttermilk for this recipe. You can also easily make your own buttermilk with regular milk and vinegar/lemon juice. Buttermilk will yield a fluffier and softer pancake!
