Lately I’ve been obsessed with pancakes. And when blueberries are in season, making Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes for breakfast is one of my favorite things!
HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES
Here are a few tips to make the best fluffy homemade pancakes:
- Don’t over-mix the batter! This is very important. Mixing the batter for too long will give you tough pancakes, and nobody wants tough pancakes! Just barely mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and don’t worry about the lumps
- When measuring the flour, use the spoon and level method rather than the scoop method. What that means is, spoon the flour into the measuring cup, then use a knife to level it off. This will help keep you from adding too much flour to the batter, which makes the pancakes dense instead of fluffy.
- Be sure your pan is not too hot. I usually keep my pan at medium or just under medium. If your pan is too hot, you will get a burned pancake that is raw in the middle. Pay attention to this and adjust the heat as needed while cooking – you might need to turn it down.
- Use buttermilk! Buttermilk helps make your pancakes fluffy because of how it reacts to the baking soda. It also make your pancakes more tender.
