Dad’s Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

My dad makes blueberry pancakes for us every Saturday without fail. The combination of oats, cornmeal and buttermilk in the batter gives the pancakes heartiness we can't resist. —Gabrielle Short, Pleasant Hill, Iowa

    Nice easy Saturday morning breakfast. Added mini chocolate chips today instead of blueberries and they are disappearing fast.

    These pancakes are easy and turn out so nice. The berries stay nice and plump and they are divine with a bit of butter and some berry syrup.

    Only change I made was to add some chopped walnuts for extra fiber. Delicious pancakes, thanks "Dad".

    Really tasty, but my pancakes turned out more flat than fluffy.

    Good taste, but mine came out pretty thin also. I would maybe try less buttermilk next time.

    Followed recipe exactly like another viewer too flat. And didn't like the flavor combination either. Made another batch with an old recipe.
