Blueberry Pecan Pancakes

pancakes on Gary's plate

It must be the buttermilk, because these pancakes are just the lightest and fluffiest things going. Even with all the blueberries and pecans, they practically float off the plate. Copious quantities of butter and maple syrup are required to keep them from levitating to the ceiling.

I had sour cream, with coconut sugar sprinkled on mine, but DH had THE WORKS – butter, real maple syrup, and cinnamon. And, yes, that is his beloved poached egg off to the side, but it definitely takes second billing today.

Below is a picture of how they look as I drop the blueberries and pecans onto the pancakes before turning them over. I’ve tried putting the blueberries directly into the batter, but they always stain it blue. Tastes okay, but looks peculiar.

When I use fresh berries, the size of them keeps the batter too far off the pan to really bake the second side sufficiently, so I always use frozen ones, getting them onto the batter before they thaw out even a little bit.

    I have frozen blueberries and a huge bag of pecans, so I think I will have a pancake breakfast tomorrow morning. I notice that putting the blueberries into the batter turns it blue, but since it is easier for me, and since I don’t photograph it, I don’t care about the blue color. I always top mine with butter and organic maple syrup. Can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow!


  2. Looks so very tasty. I liked your idea with the frozen blueberries!

    Be advised. . .I spotted pancakes aloft! They floated right over our casa this morning. I checked the wind direction and time. . .sure enough, they came from Dr. J’s kitchen! Who knew? Talk about lighter than air!

    OMG, that looks so good! And one thing – I LOVE sour cream and never thought about putting it on pancakes. Yeaaaa, thanks for the great idea.

      I love sour cream, too. I use the elimination method – that is – sour cream on anything, unless it sounds too gross! It is really good on pancakes because then the coconut sugar sticks to it. I love butter, but it sinks right into the pancakes and disappears. Sour cream is lighter, has more flavor, and fewer calories. Win-Win-Win!

    Buttermilk does result in really fluffy and tasty pancakes. I totally agree with you. I love blueberries and this week they are on sale. I should make myself some blueberry pikelets.
