Reviews for Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes
"This is my first attempt to make blueberry pancakes because I was trying to find ways to finish up some leftover weeks old blueberries in the fridge. These pancakes are outstanding: the taste and the presentation! For my picky toddlers, I did not use the blueberry sauce but dust their pancakes with powdered sugar with faces. They finished it with no fuss (scored!). Husband loves it too."
"These pancakes were absolutely fantastic. I would not change a thing, my family loved them. I will experiment with different fruits in the future. I try to use whatever is in season."
"Ok, I've been cooking for 52 years and am considered a pretty good cook in our circle of family and friends but I have to admit my homemade pancakes don't hold a candle next to these. I didn't make the blueberry syrup this time because I only had enough blueberries to make the pancakes this time but will try the syrup later on too. I hate it when people alter a recipe so much it's hardly the same recipe then give a review on the listed recipe. It's just not fair to the submitter and I always try to follow the recipe as written at least the first time before I start tweaking it to suit our tastes. I followed this recipe for the pancakes to a T and found it to be the best tasting pancakes I've personally ever made. The batter is a little thinner then what I'm used to but I can honestly say I wouldn't change a thing they were that good! I also love the fact that it's so versatile and I can hardly wait to try other fruits in it. You could put pretty much any fruit or combination of fruits in it as well as chocolate chips or just have them plain and I'm confidant they would all be equally great! We just used a little bit of maple syrup on ours but I think even a little butter and powdered sugar would also be good on them. You can bet this pancake will be a regular in our household from now on. Thanks for posting such a great tasting, fluffy, tender pancake recipe. I think you could also add extra fruit on top with a dollop of whipped cream and have a wonderful dessert as well."
"I have been looking for a blueberry pancake recipe for quite some time and this one is perfect. The pancake were so good that I did not have to make the blueberry topping. Delicious! !!"
"I tried these pancakes because I had some sour cream I wanted to use. They were absolutely delicious! I substituted a 1/4 cup quinoa and flax uncooked hot cereal for an equal amount of the flour. I also added about a tablespoon of raw wheat germ. . The texture was light -the taste very flavorful!"
"This is THE best blueberry pancake recipe I have EVER had. My daughter in law is here from China, and doesn't like super sweet breakfasts, will try this on her tomorrow with maybe a little lemon zest in the topping?. will let you know?."
"I thought I had reviewed these, they are the best pancakes ever! I used cake flour instead of all purpose, my daughter and I are chocolate lovers, so I used mini chocolate chips in place of blueberries, with maple syrup on top (I love spreading a thin layer of peanut butter on mine, a family tradition!), these are like dessert not breakfast! I had some left over, (usually double it), froze them in ziploc bags, used them to make peanut butter sandwich's for my daughter's lunch at school, delish! Thanks Paula!"
"One of my top favorite pancake recipes! I make it often for my husband and daughters! We all love it! I serve leftovers spread with butter and topped with sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yummy!"
"Yummy!! My kids love this recipe :)"
"My husband and I were talking about pancakes yesterday and he commented that his favorite ones to eat had sour cream in the batter. I had not ever made them like that so I thought I would look for a recipe on-line and Taste of Home once again comes to the recue with a wonderful tasting and looking pancake. We will make these again. Thanks!"
"My family loved this recipe!!"
"I changed it up a little, to make it lighter.i used 1 cup of fine ground corn meal and 1 cup flour, then used 1/4 cup brown sugar in place of white,added 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to the milk to sour, then substituted apple sauce for sour cream. Held the blueberries . I did make the blueberry topping though. Also added some vanilla . Yum!!!!Light, fluffy and delish!!!! :)"
"Pancakes are yummy, light and fluffy as others have said. I used whole wheat flour to make healthier for my 1 year old and he loved them too. I didn't make the sauce this time but plan to next time!"
"we love blueberries and this recipe is a little different, a nice change!"
"Great pancakes. 1/4 cup of batter is too small for me. 1/2 cup pancakes were perfect"
"I love this recipe! My daughter doesn't eat blueberries so I've made the recipe as written but omitted the berries. Wonderfully tender and flavorful!Today I made pancakes using this recipe as the base. No blueberries, of course, instead I added cooked, chopped bacon. Because the bacon is fatty enough, I also didn't add any butter. Delicious!"
"My 14 yr old and I made this recipe this morning. However we only have 1 cup each of blueberries and blackberries and we decided to save the fruit for the topping instead of putting the fruit into the pancake mix. Needless to say the pancakes were so yummy even with just using the fruit as a topping. My son who could NOT believe that he would ever eat a pancake with sour cream in it was over the moon for these pancakes. My boyfriend REALLY liked them alot as well. 5 stars all the way! Enjoy!!!!!"
"My family and I LOVE this recipe! I use Vanilla greek yougurt or sour cream. I also use 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk sometimes. Versatile recipe!! If your syrup is too runny then just mix some more cornstarch with cold water and add to the syrup to thicken it. Wonderful recipe:)"
"My family and I think these are the best pancakes we've ever made at home. We don't make the blueberry sauce, just add the fresh berries right into the batter when cooking, and I've also used plain yogurt in place of the sour cream numerous times and it was just as good if not better."
"this is a fabulous recipe that i make over and over again for my family"
"this is a fabulous recipe that i make over and over again for my family."
"I liked these pancakes, they had a strong blueberry flavor."
"#1 pancake recipe EVER!!"
"My husband and daughter don't really care for blueberries, but they loved these pancakes along with the rest of the family. They were quick and easy and absolutely delicious. I wish I could have made the syrup too, but I didn't have enough blueberries."
"I just made the pancakes and they were wonderful. I freeze the leftovers and they taste like I just made them fresh. These have been added to my cookbook."
"The pancake mix was good. I didn't like the blueberry sauce. It was running and didn't taste good. This recipe is not for me."
"Used yogert instead of sour cream and they turned out very well. Really like the blueberry syrup."
"Very good. Was too lazy to make the blueberry topping, so just used syrup. Slowly working my to eating more whole wheat so did a ratio of 3 parts white flour and 1 part whole wheat."
"These are the best pancakes. I used one cup wheat flour and fat free sour cream and it came out great."
"I made this recipe with plain pancakes (no fruit in the batter), with a strawberry-banana sauce rather than a blueberry one. I also added a little vanilla to the batter. They were AMAZING, probably some of the best pancakes I've ever had. Thanks for sharing!"
"My favorite pancake recipe!!"
"I have tried a few 'from scratch' pancake recipes lately, and this is by far the best of them all! It's easy to follow and it's easy to eat!! Fantastic recipe!"
"These pancakes are awesome! So fluffy and light, two thumbs up."
"wonderful! The pancake itself is very tender and so good I can eat them without anything on them, but very good with the Blueberry sauce."
"These pancakes were fabulous! My whole family loved them! This will definitely be my new pancake recipe!"
"I really thought the sauce was good but the pancakes were just okay. Also, I make pancakes often and thesed seemed to take an unusually long time for bubbles to appear on top. However, I will probably try these one more time to see if I get different results."
"These are by far the best pancakes i have ever eaten and made. Our guests from Mexico said this is the pancake he wants from now on. We are sold on these. thanks"
"This recipe is by far my favorite pancake recipe. I love the blueberry sauce."
"Best fluffy pancakes I have ever had - with or without the blueberries."
"Oh my goodness! I'm a blueberry fanatic, but even if I weren't, I would be in love with this recipe! My husband and daughter gobbled them up, and I ate several myself. Awesome recipe!"
"This is a wonderful recipe. Just got done making them and eating them. Pancakes are not my favorite, but these are wonderful. Great for a special occassion/holiday!"
"We serve these with homemade buttermilk syrup( a caramel syrup that is easy and to-die-for). Yummy!"
"I make these with homemade buttermilk syrup (an easy, caramel syrup---sooo good). Yummy!!"
"I am not a fan of pancakes, but proceeded to eat 6 of them! They are very tasty and we will make these again."
"Delicious. Made with half whole wheat flour, half white."
"This looks so good!"
"Love these pancakes. i also add a few tsps of cinnamon."
"We have been making these pancakes for years now. Very good!"
"my family really likes these pancakes! they are very moist and the sauce is wonderful. we serve these to overnight guests and everybody likes them."
"Very good! I don't make the blueberry sauce although I am sure it would be wonderful - I use regular maple syrup to suit my family's taste and they love these pancakes. I wish I knew if the nutritional information included blueberry sauce or not though! :)"
"My family will not eat blueberries so I omitted them from this recipe with great results. The pancakes were still very fluffy and flavorful. This recipe is a keeper!"
"I'm a little confused...is the first part of the directions for making the topping? If so, what amount of blueberries go into this? Apparently not all of them, because at the end of the second paragraph of the directions, you're told to "fold in blueberries"...are you folding in what you made in the first paragraph, or folding in just the berries? And if you are folding in what you made in paragraph one, what are you using for the topping at the end?? Maybe you're folding in the topping but saving SOME of it to use as topping??? Anyone know? (Sorry for the long, confusing question!)"
"my blueberries were so plump that my batter could not properly cook once I flipped the pancakes over. The pancakes just were not very fluffy. Sadly, they were not a hit with the family."
