Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes  (For One)

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Homemade Blueberry Syrup

1/4 cup wild blueberries
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a large bowl, whisk together butter, buttermilk, egg, sugar and vanilla until well combined.  Gently fold in flour mixture until just combined; allow batter to sit 10 minutes.

Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with butter or cooking spray.  Place 2 large blobs of batter (or 4 smaller blogs) in skillet.  Top with as many blueberries as you want.  Cook 3 minutes or until golden brown; flip, and cook an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown. 

To make the homemade blueberry syrup, stir together blueberries, brown sugar, corn syrup and cinnamon in a small saucepan; bring to a boil.  Boil 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently while mashing the blueberries.  Serve syrup over pancakes.

  3. Emily, these look so good! I love when you make breakfast treats!

  4. These look delicious! I wonder if raspberries would work in them or if they're too juicy?

  5. blueberries and buttermilk, this is pretty much my heaven :)

  6. I was just thinking about a single serving pancake recipe the other day! These look really good, and I like the homemade syrup, too.

  7. I made buttermilk pancakes on the weekend! I always have buttermilk on hand because my favourite bread, that is so easy to make, calls for it. I make some almost every week.

  8. these look amazing!! is cooking pancakes in butter what gives them the golden glow or is that from the buttermilk? either way, they must taste incredible!!

  9. I seem to have buttermilk around only when I can't think of anything to use it in. Figures. Guess I'll have to buy some more to make these!

  10. oh my gosh these look heavenly!! must make breakfast for dinner!!

  11. Oo, I love the "for one" recipe! Portion control, ha... I agree, if I had buttermilk in my fridge, I'd be baking up sweet breads and stuff all day long.

  12. I love blueberry! Looks so good.

  13. They look awesome! Especially the blueberry compote on top. You can't beat some pancakes for breakfast...or anytime!

  14. Pancakes are one of those foods I rarely ever get right. Perhaps I should just invite myself over for breakfast sometime instead? ;-)

  15. Love this recipe! Classic flavor, can't go wrong.
