The Blueberry Pancakes of Your Dreams are thick, fluffy, and just bursting with fresh blueberries! Delicious with a drizzle of maple syrup or even ice cream! These golden brown blueberry pancakes are the perfect breakfast recipe to whip up this weekend!
I’m looking forward to this Summer! I’m so excited for lazy days reading in the park, loads of market fresh produce, and ahem – my BIRTHDAY! Yep. Only 1 month away now. So totally… that girl. I’m already planning a cake week. Yes. A whole week of cakes!!! But really – more than anything – I’m excited for Summer breakfast! And to me, Summer breakfast means blueberry pancakes. Hot mornings… fresh blueberries… sweet, buttery, ultra-fluffy pancakes. Not a bad combo, right?
As you’ve probably noticed by now, I labeled these pancakes the ones of your dreams. A bold statement… but I’m standing by it! These pancakes are really the best. I tested them literally 16 times. You know, just to be sure 😉
So what makes them the best (you ask)? Well, it’s pretty simple. They’re full of blueberries; tender enough to cut without a knife; and not too sweet to drench in syrup! Syrup is an important part of the pancake game!
These blueberry beauties are luscious and tender thanks to sour cream, whole milk, and a couple of eggs. Nothing fancy here!
And they get their sweetness from a kiss of brown sugar and a heavy hand of berries! Simple simple does the job 🙂
I just love these perfect pancakes! And I know you will too. What’s your favorite Summertime breakfast? xoxo

The Blueberry Pancakes Of Your Dreams
- *Makes about 14 pancakes
- 3 large eggs, separated
- 1 cup full-fat sour cream
- 3 tablespoons whole milk
- 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2/3 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
- 4 tablespoons butter, for the pan
- Maple syrup, for serving
- In a large bowl whisk together the egg yolks, sour cream, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla, and baking powder.
- In a separate large bowl add flour and blueberries and toss to combine, making sure berries are fully coated in the flour.
- Add flour mixture to the wet milk mixture, and stir just to combine; do not over mix! The batter will be thick, so don’t worry if there’s a lot of clumps left.
- Add egg whites to a large bowl or the body of a stand mixer. Beat using a handheld mixer or the whisk attachment until the whites begin to form soft peaks.
- With a rubber spatula fold egg whites into flour/sour cream mixture, stirring until fully incorporated.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Ladle 1/3 cup scoops of the batter into the skillet, only cooking a few at a time so they don’t blend together.
- Cook pancakes until the edges begin to brown and the top of the batter bubbles, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat for all pancake batter.
- Top pancakes with syrup and extra blueberries, or anything else your heart desires! Serve at once.

These look insane!! You know how to make a killer pancake!
Thanks, T! xo
I’ve been on a blueberry binge so these are calling my name! Can’t wait until your cake week — sounds like fun! 🙂
Kristine @ Kristine's Kitchen says
I certainly could dream about these pancakes. Just look at those juicy blueberries! Sour cream is THE BEST in pancakes. I am pinning these right away!
Kelly - LEFT SIDE OF THE TABLE says
Home run Ashley!! They are the blueberry pancakes of my dreams because you put a TON of berries in it!! I hate when people are stingy with the amount of blueberries in pancakes lol…but really 😉 This is probably one of my fav summer breakfasts, along with some great quality peppered bacon 😀 My favorite is in August after i’ve picked some fresh wild blueberries, then making delicious things like pancakes using them. AH can’t wait! Thanks for sharing!
Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl says
Oh goodness, these are totally made out of dreams! They look perfect! Just pinned to make this upcoming weekend!
Yay! I hope you love them 🙂 xo
Wow just made these for the first time and were a huge hit in our house…I just wanted to know if the mix was freezable or not as we have lots left over
Hi Sarah. I’m so happy to hear these were a hit in your home 🙂 I have honestly never tried freezing the batter, but I have pre-cooked pancakes then flash froze them; that I know works!
sarah k @ the pajama chef says
i recently learned that my husband’s favorite pancakes are blueberry! so i will have to make these for him 🙂
Kayle (The Cooking Actress) says
SO EXCITED about summer (and your birthday-CAKE WEEK!!) and looooving these pancakes-so classic and perfect and bursting with blueberries!
Claire Gallam says
HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY!! Girls weekend?
Averie @ Averie Cooks says
Happy early bday! And a week of cakes, love your thinking 🙂
And yes to the bb pancakes of my dreams right here. Gorgeous & pinned!
Oh my!! These look insanely divine.
The sour cream is key, right? I know that yogurt is 10 x better than milk for fluffiness, so I cannot even imagine the silky, cloud-like fluffiness that full fat sour cream results in! I can’t believe I have never got round to trying it before…your pics are actually pushing me into trying it!
My favorite summer time breakfast is probably something with maple syrup actually! Peanut butter too…I don’t know! I can never ever decide! I can tell you that these pics are beautiful though! Thanks for the perfect recipe, totally pinning this to remind me of whats for saturday brunch!!
Yes please!! These sound divine. I wish I could have that 6-layer pancake bite!
omg, im drooling. ur photo pics are seriously the best. xO!
Ashley | Spoonful of Flavor says
My birthday is next month too and I like the sound of an entire week dedicated to cake! And I’ll definitely be dreaming about these pancakes tonight. I’m so glad that it is blueberry season so I can make a huge stack!
Millie l Add A Little says
Ahh these look amazing!! I’ve been obsessed with blueberries recently and looks amazing!!
Perfect pancakes! Oh I wish someone could make them for me 😀

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe says
These might just be the most perfect blueberry pancakes that I’ve ever seen. Yum!
You = the sweetest! Like, ever!!!
Kaylee M. says
Just made these for our Father’s Day breakfast. So good! I also made a blueberry topping with it. They were nice and thick. And it was nice that the batter wasn’t runny. I added some cinnamon to the recipe because I love cinnamon. I will be making them again. Thanks for the great recipe!
Hi Kaylee! This comment made my day! SO HAPPY YOU MADE THESE 🙂 xoxo
I’ve made these twice this week. They are perfect!!! Thank you!
Joyce laferrera says
They look awful good.
Karen @ The Food Charlatan says
Oh my gosh, that first shot it amazing!!! I love that you tested these 16 times…All in a days work right?? 🙂
Hey Karen! Allllll part of the job 😉 Thanks for the sweet words! xo
Alice // Hip Foodie Mom says
you tested this recipe 16 times?! I just needed to see that one shot of the pancakes, with that layered bite. oh my gawd. Pinned. Blueberry pancakes of my dreams, indeed.
These pancakes look delicious and I can’t wait to make them for my family. I have tried many recipes and havn’t quite found the perfect one yet. I know you said “fresh blueberries” but have you ever tried using frozen?
Hi Michelle! I haven’t tried frozen, but readers have made them with frozen and reported back good results 🙂 So it should work just fine. My only tip, be sure to not defrost the berries before mixing them in. They should go straight from the freezer into the batter, to avoid purple streaks/mushy berries.
I made the mistake of running cold water over my frozen berries first. I think it added too much moisture to the batter. Also I used reduced fat milk and sour cream. Next time I will try without the milk at all, to see if the reduced moisture helps the batter. It took longer for mine to cook, which burned the tops. But I still ate them- very tasty!
Ahhhhhhmazing!!! Seriously “so fluffy I’m gonna die” came to mind whilst scooping the pillowy batter out of the bowl to the pan! For the little extra work put into these pancakes such as; whipping the egg whites, it’s totally worth it! The only thing I did different than what the instructions said was… With a whisk I whipped the liquids up BEFORE adding the baking powder.. My sour cream was super thick and needed a beat down.. Then folded the baking powder into the liquids and follwed instructions. Great recipe! thank you! I should have doubled it for 4 hungry teenage boys.. My bad!
Hi Cody! Sooooo happy these pancakes were a win! 4 hungry boys definitely call for a double batch 😉

Tried these pancakes, & have to say THE ABSOLUTELY BEST EVER LIGHT & FLUFFY RECIPE I HAVE EVER TRIED, & WILL NO LONGER SEARCH 4 ANOTHER ONE. THIS IS A KEEPER. KUDOS & THANK YOU
Oh are these amazing! I didnt have any vanilla and only had about a half cup of sour cream. Still made them. So light and fluffy! Definitely planting a blueberry bush! My husband told me not to loose this recipe.
Hi there. Its seem delicious. and found this from pinterest and make my list http://www.sesukaida.com/10-delicious-pancakes-for-your-morning/
We just made these and they were fantastic! They are fluffy, not overly sweet and delicious. These will be added to my weekend breakfast rotation. The recipe only yielded 7 small pancakes in my case but that is plenty in my household.
Hi Maria! YAY 🙂 So happy you enjoyed this pancake recipe – they are my favorite! P.S. The recipe can easily be double if you ever need a bigger batch.
Made these this morning after my son requested blueberry pie for breakfast. They were delicious and he was very happy!
hi! I have dried blueberries as we dont have fresh in Venezuela. What would you suggest to do with them before adding them to the mix?
Thanks! Want to make them tomorrow for fathers day here!
Hi Monica. I’ve never attempted this recipe with dried blueberries, so I can’t say too much on that adaption. Do you have frozen blueberries?
happy independence day! Made these for a nice holiday breakfast and they were a hit! My son asked for 4 helpings! That’s the most food I’ve seen him eat! I was a little intimidated with beating the egg whites to the mixture, but it expanded the batter almost twice the size! So I can see how someone might only get a few pancakes out of it, but after beating the egg whites till it’s almost stiff, I was able to get about 12 pancakes! VERY DELISH!!!!!!! Thank you =)
Hi Jessica! I hope you had a great 4th of July 🙂
I’m thrilled to hear you and your son enjoyed these pancakes! And I’m happy you didn’t let the egg white beating stop you from making them. It can definitely be intimidating the first time you do it, but it becomes second nature after a while.
Have a great day!
These are amazing! So fluffy and incredibly delicious. My boyfriend normally hates pancakes and now he’s begging me to make them again!
Awwww yay! Thank you for letting me know, Sarah. And so happy your boyfriend is finally a pancake fan 🙂
Donne Roma says
That looks delicious!
i made these this morning. Phenomenal!
That’s awesome, Natalie! So happy you enjoyed them 🙂
Just made these for dinner…lol yeah dinner! THEY. WERE. AMAZING!!!! My boyfriend is not a fan of blueberries, so could i make these the same way but leave out the blueberries?
So happy to hear it, Dami. I love pancakes for dinner – or brinner, as we call it 😉 I think this recipe should work OK without the blueberries, though I can’t say for sure as I’ve never tried. Please let me know if you try!
These are awesome! I used full fat greek yogurt because it’s what I had on hand, and instead of regular flour I did 1/3c almond flour and 1/3c + 2T oat flour to make them gluten free and a bit higher in protein. I also had to use frozen blueberries out of necessity. Even with all that adjustment they turned out beautifully! Thank you for the terrific recipe.
Hi! I love this recipe! My boyfriend complained when i tried a different one… but can it be made the night before to save time in the morning?
Hi Charne. I’m so happy you – and your boyfriend – are loving the recipe! I’ve never tried making the batter the night before, but I think it should work fine. If you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out.
Hi Charne. Did you ever try making this batter the night before? If so, how did it turn out? They sound delicious, but too time consuming for my busy mornings.
Just made these this morning and oh my god. Amazing!
So happy to hear it, Amanda! Thank you for letting me know.
Anita Watt says
I’ve made these a couple of times now and they are totally to die for!!!!
Someone necessarily help to make seriously articles I’d state. This is the very first time I frequented your website page and up to now? I surprised with the research you made to create this particular publish extraordinary. Fantastic process! dedgkfakgdbcdfaa
Can I make batter ahead of time and put in fridge?
Hi Ashley. I haven’t tried making this in advance, so I’m not sure how the batter will hold up. I wouldn’t recommend storing it for more than a few hours, as it contains active ingredients that develop the batter as they sit. If you give it a try, I’d love to hear how they turn out 🙂
Loren Steele says
I love how you did the whole soufflé thing separating the yolks from the whites. Delicious pancakes. A little overkill with the 9 photos before the recipe. I was starting to think I’d never get there.
Rochelle C. says
Just found a link to this recipe on Pinterest this morning (it’s been repinned over 82k times!!), and cooked them up for the family breakfast. WOW… these are most definitely the best blueberry pancakes we have EVER had! I have to say, I didn’t have sour cream in the fridge so I substituted with whole fat greek plain yogurt. It worked out just fine. They cook up so incredibly fluffy and light, with big bursts of blueberries in every bite. This will my go-to blueberry pancake recipe from here on out. Thanks so much for sharing!!
Rochelle C. says
P.S. We enjoyed these pancakes with a little bit of soft butter and a dusting of powdered sugar, and didn’t miss the maple syrup *at all*. The sweetness and soft preserve-like texture of the blueberries were plenty good. Try it! 🙂
Do you suggest making the batter the night before? I have big breakfast planned for the morning and want to save some time 🙂
Victoria Owusu says
Yummmy. I made these today for Easter Brunch. So amazing
Yay! So happy they were a part of your holiday celebration 🙂
Yuma! Added mashed bananas, oatmeal, crushed flaxseed and toughest for sour cream. Beautiful! Thx!!
These were so so good!! I had some ricotta I needed to use soon so I squeezed a lemon and 2 tsp of sugar into the ricotta and mixed well and served it in between the layers of the pancakes! Lemon blueberry and ricotta! So yummy! Thanks for the recipe!
WOW! Seriously the best blueberry pancakes we’ve ever had! So worth the extra little steps. YUM!
Bradley Viljoen says
Well you said these were the best pancakes and that is what they are. I made and ate these for new years breakfast and i cant tell you how impressed we all were. They are truly the best pancakes i have ever eaten. Thank you so much for sharing. This recipe will be with me for life!
We made these for years & your recipe is THE BEST! Thank you!
I cut the recipe by 3rd and made 4 perfect little 4inch pancakes. My 2yo said, ‘mmm mmm good!’ so I’ll definitely make a batch to freeze. I was hesitant to try this recipe because of the egg whites but it was worth hauling out the stand mixer. Perfectly good with butter and maple syrup or a dollop of whipped cream. Thank you for sharing, they were thoroughly enjoyed!
Made these this morning…have never dreamt of blueberry pancakes but that might change after eating these! Thanks for a great recipe!
Gma Sharon says
These are THE BEST blueberry pancakes – in fact THE BEST pancakes we have ever tasted in our lives (and my husband is 77 years old)! I wasn’t sure about this recipe at first (so little flour?; what-no baking soda?; only 3 tablespoons of milk???), but I made it EXACTLY as written, and I am so glad I did. If anyone is thinking about altering this recipe, you’re making a mistake. DO NOT change a single thing! I cooked them on a buttered griddle at 325 degrees, watching them carefully. They took a little longer to cook this way, but worth the time. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. The pancakes were melt-in-your-mouth, heavenly delicious;-)
Brooke Bennett says
You are right, these are the Pancakes of my dreams!! My 3 little boys absolutely love these pancakes and ask me to make them all the time. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
