Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce
With hot days and cool nights, blueberries thrive under blue skies!
That's why they're in abundance this time of year (April through late September in North America) so why not take advantage?
Super sweet yet tinged with tang, they're the perfect fruit to wake up to and devour! We love them in these buttermilk pancakes which are low-calorie, versatile, and super tasty.
Top with whatever you feel like, or with this delicious blueberry sauce — it really is purple perfection!
Ingredients (for 8-12 people)
For the pancakes:
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp vanilla extract
For the blueberry sauce:
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- Juice of 1 lemon (3 tbsp)
- Pinch of salt
- In a large bowl, mix all ingredients for pancakes. Let the batter sit for 30 mins.
- While the batter is sitting, prepare your skillet. About 5 mins. before the batter is ready, drizzle a little oil into the skillet and place on medium-heat. Make sure the oil covers all areas of the skillet.
- Spoon a laddle of batter and slowly pour it onto the skillet. When the batter begins to bubble and the edges turn gold, flip over and cook for 2 mins.
- Continue until all batter is used.
For the blueberry sauce:
- In a medium-sized skillet, put in the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and salt. Heat over medium-high until the liquid begins to simmer.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often until the berries release their juices. The liquid should start reducing while also thickening. After 10 mins. turn off heat. You should have 1 cup of sauce.
- Set aside and allow to cool.
- Pour over pancakes and enjoy!
