Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes

 A few weeks ago when Leah and I were planning the menu, she had been looking through one of my cookbooks and saw this recipe which is one I happened to have marked to try sometime. With having an abundance of blueberries right now, it was a perfect time to do so! So I made it last week, and this simple recipe is definitely a keeper.

Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes
(my alterations are in italics)

-- 1/2 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup evaporated cane juice)
-- 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
-- 1 cup water
-- 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

-- 2 cups all-purpose flour (or 2 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour)
-- 1/4 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice)
-- 4 tsp. baking powder
-- 1/2 tsp. salt
-- 2 eggs
-- 1 1/2 cups milk
-- 1 cup sour cream
-- 1/3 cup butter, melted
-- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in water. Add blueberries; bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; cover and keep warm.

For pancakes, combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs. Add milk, sour cream and butter; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened (let sit for a few minutes - if necessary add a little more flour.) Fold in the blueberries. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls (I did just a little less than 1/3 cup to make bigger pancakes) onto a greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top of the pancakes. Cook until the second side is golden brown. Serve with blueberry topping. Enjoy!

  1. That looks delicious. I wonder if cornstarch is roughly the same as Cornflour?

  2. Mmm! Looks like a tasty meal!

  3. Looks good enough for IHOP!:-) Was this a breakfast, or a breakfast-for-dinner?

  4. Thank you, Elizabeth!

    Good question! I had to look it up. :) Cornstarch is just the starch part of cornflour so they are a little different!

  5. Your comment made me smile, Betsy! :) And yes, this was breakfast-for-dinner.

  6. These pancakes look so good in the photo. I believe I have just enough of last year's blueberries in the freezer to cook this recipe for supper this evening.

    Thanks for sharing ...
