Grandma's Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe


We hand picked over 20 pounds of blueberries at a local blueberry farm this year. Most of them became blueberry jelly, but the rest we froze to use throughout the year. And the one thing I can't wait to use them for is homemade blueberry buttermilk pancakes!

There is nothing like Grandma's pancakes. There's just something so amazing about them that the box doesn't duplicate. Let's face it, when you eat the real thing, you know it! It turns out that making the real thing is just about as simple as using a box mix and well worth the effort! If you aren't convinced, I'll let the pictures do the persuading :)

Simply mix the ingredients in a bowl.

 Not too thick, and not too runny. Look at those juicy blueberries!

 Waiting for them to cook is almost unbearable...are they ready yet???

Mmm, perfectly fluffy and delicious from the inside out! This is making me hungry :)

Grandma's Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe: (makes 16)
2 c. flour (sifted)
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

2 1/4 c. Bulgarian buttermilk
2 eggs (beaten)
2 tbsp. butter (softened)

Feel free to add some extras. My favorites include:
1 c. blueberries
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix in buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Stir together until smooth. Scoop 1/4 c. amounts onto a greased skillet on medium heat. They are ready to flip once bubbles come up through the batter.

What are your favorite "extras" to put in pancakes?
