Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes

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

    We have made this recipe many, many times. It is an absolute favorite. The combination of ingredients turns into the perfect moist and flavorful pancake. The syrup adds just the right amount of flavor without tasting too sweet or starchy. The only minor complaint might be the pancakes are more flat than fluffy, but overall, this recipe is the best.

    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!
