Sour Cream Blueberry Pancakes Recipe

These sour cream blueberry pancakes are fluffy and bursting with blueberry goodness. They make for a quick and easy breakfast - less than 30 minutes!

Pancakes are good at bringing people together. I love mornings where we can all sit down together and enjoy the same simple and delicious breakfast rather than everyone doing their own thing.

The sweet aroma of these blueberry pancakes lured my boys to the table long before I set the stack in front of them. These sour cream pancakes are fluffy and bursting with blueberry goodness. They make for a really quick and easy breakfast (on the table in less than 30 minutes!)

The pancakes also re-heat really well; pop ’em in the toaster and they’re just as delicious as the morning you made them!

Ingredients for Sour Cream Blueberry Pancakes (Serves 6):

1 cup milk, room temp
3/4 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Oil or butter to saute
1 cup of blueberries + more for topping

How to Make SourCream Blueberry Pancakes:

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

2. In a separate large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Pour dry ingredients over wet ingredients and fold everything together just until smooth and no streaks or large clumps of flour remain then fold in blueberries until disbursed.

3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add butter or oil.Once it’s hot, you can use either an ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoon to add the batter to the pan. Saute 2 minutes per side or until golden brown on each side and fluffy.

If they brown too quickly, reduce the heat. Transfer to a serving platter when done and serve warm with real maple syrup and plenty of blueberries and bananas if you like.

Tips for Success:

* I loved the lighter flavor of extra light olive oil to saute.
*Let them cool down a little before serving. The blueberry juice can get very hot (the corner of my mouth took a hit as I chomped on one right out of the pan).

    Made these this morning, yum! I nade a double batch and instead of berries, I added some poppyseeds and then split the mixture in two and added chocolate chips to 1 half. Kids enjoyed the chocolate chip topped with some berries and maple syrup. My husband and I enjoyed them with berries, it’s just sweet enough not to need syrup! Thank you for the delicious breakfast! Reply

    Can you add raw kefir instead of sour cream? I’m wondering if it’ll taste similar. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      November 12, 2017

      Hi Natalie, I haven’t tested that but I think it would work and still taste good. You may not need quite as much so you don’t thin out the batter too much since kefir is quite a bit thinner than sour cream. Reply

    Hi natasha, can i make the batter night before? If not, how far in advance can i make it? Reply

      October 19, 2017

      Hi Anya, the only pancake batter that I have made ahead is one with yeast as a leavening agent. I would suggest using this batter once it is made since you will have activated the baking soda and I’m not sure it would rise as well if you wait awhile. If you wanted to make it ahead, the best way would be to combine the dry ingredients in 1 bowl and the wet in another and refrigerate wet ingredients covered. Combine the two mixtures just before making the pancakes. Reply

    • Natasha

      September 3, 2016

      Oh no! That’s definitely not normal. Did you possibly switch the baking soda and baking powder in the recipe? There is enough sour cream to activate the baking soda, canceling out any baking soda flavor in this recipe. I hope that helps! Reply

          Sorry, we were camping and I didn’t have much time to answer; I’m not sure how I missed the second question. These are way faster to make since you don’t have to wait an hour or two for the batter to rise. These are easier so it’s just a matter of which ones you have more time for. Reply
