These blueberry pancakes are nothing like you’ve made before! The pancakes alone have the perfect amount of sweetness and blueberry flavor. Drench with warm buttermilk syrup for a restaurant-style breakfast that you’ll want to make over and over.
Nothing beats a stack of warm pancakes on a Saturday morning. I have so many childhood memories of my dad buttering up a griddle and making us pancakes. He has always been so good at making pancakes, waffles, french toast, and pretty much every breakfast food he’s every tried making. Breakfasts with my family were some of my favorite moments with them growing up. When I made these Blueberry Pancakes with Warm Buttermilk Syrup, it took me right back to gathering around the kitchen island and watching dad cook up breakfast. And I love creating memories like those with my own kids.
What I’m about to tell you is a cold, hard fact: These pancakes are THE BEST pancakes I have ever had. EVER. I was so pleasantly surprised when this batter came together and tasted like this! Top with more blueberries and drench in warm buttermilk syrup and you’ve got yourself what I’m pretty sure they’re having for breakfast in heaven. I cannot wait to make these pancakes again!
