Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Everyone is wondering how we find the time to cook and bake so much. We are not slaves to our kitchen, we just work as a team…four hands are much better than two:) So while I am sifting the dry ingredients, Josh is measuring out the liquids…or while Josh is making the dough, I am working on the sauce, etc. So recipes come together in no time! Josh is my side-kick. We do almost everything together. Being in the kitchen is so fun for us!

So with that said…I had nothing to do with this meal:) It was all Josh. I had to work late so he made me dinner all by his lonesome. He tries to cook for me a lot, but I usually won’t let him because I enjoy helping. I can’t relax if I know he is in the kitchen cooking up a storm. It is not fair to let him have all the fun! But this time I wasn’t home so he surprised me with a terrific meal.

We love having breakfast foods for dinner, sometimes it is too hard to cook a big meal in the mornings…except for on weekends. So when I walked in the door to the smell of pancakes cooking on the griddle, I was very excited. I was even more excited when I saw the plump blueberries inside. YUM!!!

Josh made Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with the works. He knows I don’t like eggs that much but I do appreciate scrambled egg whites so he made those and some hashbrowns. He also cooked up some sausage for his plate. I don’t eat the stuff.

The meal was very tasty!! I have the greatest husband!!





Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

1 cup flour (I use half whole wheat)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
ΒΌ teaspoon baking soda
Β½ teaspoon salt
Pinch of cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk, plus 2 Tablespoons
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Optional toppings-syrup, powdered sugar, jam, etc.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, powder, soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, oil, egg, and vanilla. Pour into flour mixture and stir lightly until just combined. The batter will be lumpy and that is OK! Grease a non-stick skillet and cook pancakes on medium heat. As soon as you pour the batter on the griddle, drop the blueberries on the pancake. Cook until the edges bubble. Flip and cook other side. Serve with syrup, etc. Really any toppings you want!

  2. I love cooking breakfast for dinner.
    And I soooo wish myhusband knew his way aroung the kitchen…but he is pretty handy with power tools!

  3. Yum! You know that your pumpkin pancakes completely blew me away! So from now on when you guys say “pancakes,” I don’t even have to think — I just start writing down the ingredients and drive myself to the store pronto!

  4. a. josh is my hero.
    b. did you put syrup on your eggs?? ew was my thought at first, but now i’m so hungry it actually sounds ok.
    c. the blueberries look amazing? when’s bberry season?

  5. I LOVE breakfast and all that’s on Josh’s plate. I think it’s awesome, I always say it, that you have that kitchenesque thing going on together. He’s sweet for cooking for you!!!!

    And yes, 10:10 tonight there will be cocktails and Twilight!!!!! Have a great weekend!

  6. You are lucky! How fun to spend time in the kitchen together. I am sure that makes everything go faster. We love breakfast for dinner too. These look great. Blueberries are a absolute favorite here!

  7. Leslie- Josh is my hero too! He put cheese on his eggs but I am sure some of the syrup crept over…and I think blueberries are a summer thing. We had them in the freezer though! We try to stock up at the market when items are fresh and cheap!

  8. Thanks Maria! You are the sweetheart!

    I know my way around the power tools also! I love tools I told Maria that I want an Air Compressor for Christmas. It won’t happen though becasue we really don’t have the money for big toys (AKA power tools) yet.

  9. great team work… and that is what you call a perfect marriage, and of course, a perfect dinner because you’re having breakfast!!! lol… love it πŸ™‚

  10. That is some breakfast! A feast!

    I envy you having a man who likes to cook and help in the kitchen. If I asked my man to get dinner he would make – a phone call to Sal’s Pizza.

  11. I think it’s great that you cook together…my husband will only cook bean and cheese burritos.

    The blueberry pancakes look amazing – actually the whole meal does.

  12. Wow, he made such a delicious meal for you! Those pancakes looks so yummy and fluffy. I don’t like scrambled eggs either, but I don’t mind hard boiled eggs

  15. You do, indeed, have an AMAZING husband. I love having breakfast for dinner, but Marc doesn’t really understand that. There’s something about pancakes (and bacon!) in the evening that gets to me. These pancakes look wonderful.

  22. Maria,

    I just have to tell you that you have one of my favorite blogs. I love your recipes and the look of your blog and of course what you write is always interesting as well! I mentioned you in my last post and I’d like you to check it out! πŸ™‚

  23. We have breakfast for dinner A LOT. In fact, I love a bowl of grits with a fried egg on top!

    I wish Brad liked helping in the kitchen. But I can’t complain – he’ll do the dishes!

  24. OOh, I love breakfast for dinner, but it doesn’t work for my husband. When he’s out of town, that’s what I make for myself (or a grilled cheese!)

    I’ve got a fun blog award for you – stop by my blog to claim it!

  25. My husband just made these for me today for my birthday breakfast in bed – they’re fantastic! They’re the best pancakes he’s ever made – I love the taste of vanilla in them. Great recipe!

  26. Okay so these are officially my favorite pancakes. My hubby made them for me again (for Mother’s Day, from my cats haha) this morning and they’re just SO GOOD! I think maybe it’s the vanilla? In any case, I’ve had many, many pancakes and we’ve tried many recipes, and we’ve made these with both frozen and fresh berries and they’re equally delicious. So I’m officially calling it – these are my favorite pancakes.

  27. I made these for my family this morning. They were delicious but the batter was a little runny and the pancakes flatter than yours look. Could this be because I was out if buttermilk and had to use a substitute? They tasted great though!
