When our family of 10 goes blueberry picking, we have a bounty of blueberries in no time. We especially enjoy them in these melt-in-your-mouth pancakes topped with a satisfying blueberry sauce. —Paula Hadley, Somerville, Louisiana

  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water until smooth. Add blueberries. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cover and keep warm.
  2. For pancakes, in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the eggs, milk, sour cream and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupful onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown. Serve with blueberry topping. Yield: about 20 pancakes (3-1/2 cups topping).
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"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!"
