  • If you would like to make the batter the night before, refrigerate the unbeaten egg whites in a separate bowl. Make the batter with the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, and melted butter; cover the bowl and refrigerate. In the morning, beat the egg whites and fold them into the batter and then fold in the blueberries.
  • Pancake batter should be mixed just until all of the ingredients are moistened. Beating the batter will create tough pancakes.
  • For even browning, use a paper towel to rub oil over the surface of the griddle. Too much oil will cause the pancakes to brown unevenly.
  • Sprinkle a few drops of cold water on the griddle to test for heat. If the water dances and pops, it's ready.

Recipe Variations

  • Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Replace the blueberries with chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips.
  • Toffee Chip Pancakes: Replace the blueberries with Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits.
  • Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes: Replace half of the milk with buttermilk, decrease the baking powder to 1 1/2 teaspoons, and add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • Lemon Blueberry Pancakes: Add 2 teaspoons of finely grated lemon zest and replace 1 tablespoon of the milk with 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.
