Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes Recipe

Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 5min./batch YIELD:10 servings


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • 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.

"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."

"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 also added about a tablespoon of raw wheat germ. . The texture was light -the taste very flavorful!"

"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!"

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!!!!!"

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:)"

"I'm a little 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!)"
