2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
21/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter, plus some for frying
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
May be served with whipped cream and maple syrup
In a large bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Beat the eggs with the buttermilk and melted butter. Combine the dry and the wet ingredients into a lumpy batter, being careful not to over mix, see Cook's Note*.
Heat some butter in a skillet over medium heat. Spoon 1/3 cup of batter into the skillet and sprinkle the top with some of the blueberries. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
*Cook's Note: Over mixed batter will result in flat, heavy pancakes.

once again hosted by sweet SALLY at SMILING SALLY.....
There's going to be so much BLUE around here in Blogland,
those of us not already in LOVE with the magnificent color will forever be in such a
BLUE MOOD..oh, and this is a GOOD thing !!

Check it all outover At SMILING SALLY'S...
I am sharing a few MORE of my BLUE plates today...
These divided plates are some of my FAVORITES...
they are from ENGLAND and I have 4 of them...
My mother had these as long as she could remember...her collection of them
started out as 8 but through the years and moving around a little, she ended up
with the four.


I love the windmill design on this one...
and it is a LUSCIOUS shade of BLUE...
This is the only Blue Windmill piece I have from Holland...
It isn't vintage and I was a mighty silly girl to buy it off Ebay without knowing more
about it...I'll not do THAT again !!
Even though it isn't a vintage piece from Germany, I kept it because of the pretty
shade of BLUE but it is not among my favorites by a long shot.

I adore the BLUE AND WHITE
STATE plates...this one from TENNESSEE was found in a thrift store
about 6 years ago.

I love this one from ALEXANDRIA...
I bought it at a yard sale about 7 years ago...
I keep looking for more from other states in the BLUE AND WHITE
but I've not seen any in awhile.

Yep....a BLUEBERRY WAFFLE or a BLUEBERRY PANCAKE tastes just a little better on

much love, bj

my PINK something for OCTOBER........

Beverly said...

What, you're showing me luscious blueberry pancakes just I have to head out the door for work. I'll be dreaming of blueberry pancakes during my early morning meeting. ;-)

I loving your blue plates - especially the one with the rooster.

And, Hugh Grant - yum!

Yummo, those blueberry pancakes look so good. Mine sure didn't look like that. I'm going to copy your recipes.


Bo said...

Hi BJ...You clever girl you...haha, blueberry pancakes & a blue-eyed hunk for Blue Monday...
The blue & white plate collection with their stories were FUN too!
;-) Bo

Daisy Cottage said...

Good Morning BJ!!!
Oh my! Those pancakes are heavenly... yummy!
The blue plates are so pretty too...


Smilingsal said...

lol, yes, he IS the one who got caught with the hooker--lol.

When I first opened your post, I said aloud, "Oh, you've done me in!" I love blueberry pancakes, but I cannot have them very often. You were kind to give the recipe, but where oh where is the recipe for that syrup? You know, the syrup MAKES it.

I love all of the blue dishes. The ones that you don't much care for can be sent to me!

Happy Blue Monday.

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Happy Blue Monday! I'll have to make sure Lola's Mom see your recipe.

Love all your pretty blue dishes. :-) Rosie

Adrienne said...

Hi BJ -
Yummmm, I love blueberry pancakes. We have such wonderful blueberries here in Oregon. Wish I had time to whip up some of those pancakes for breakfast!

Your blue plates are gorgeous. You have such a nice collection. Thanks for sharing them with us today.

Shelia said...

Morning sweet BJ! I just had a few moments and wanted to let you know how very much I appreciate your prayers and concerns for my family during the hurricane. Only by the grace of God our home wasn't devastated! But He saw fit to keep it great for us. Did I tell you how blessed we are? We serve an aweome God.

I'll be back posting soon after I get a few more things done.

Oh, I don't want to be greedy or anything, but could I just have one blueberry pancake on one blue dish? ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Mojo said...

Okay, I'm hungry now. Great work on those pancakes!

ellen b said...

Hi Bj! I'm drooling over here because of all the great blue dishes and ya know I haven't had breakfast yet so those pancakes are calling my name!! I think this is the first time I'm seeing such lovely divided plates that aren't plastic! :0)

squawmama said...

I'm sure, now, that you are the queen of blue plates. Those are beauties!! Sally

Susan said...

The perfect morning: eating blueberry pancakes off of a blue plate while sharing breakfast with Mr. Grant. Yum! Yum!

Sweetie said...

BJ, I often order blueberry pancakes when we go out for breakfast. Now I'll try to make some using your recipe. Your plates are beautiful. My favorite is the Little Church in the Wild Wood.

Ruthie said...

Hi BJ,
I love your blue plates - I have some too and they are my favorite.

Yes, we are about the same age. Isn't this a wonderful age???

Scrapbooking - It is so much fun. Wish we lived in the same area - I'd show you all the ways to scrapbook your photos. It's a really fun hobby and makes your photo books so interesting. Maybe I should post about it someday. :)
If you go to
it will tell you where a rep is is your area and you could get some ideas from her.


Cori G. said...

Why YES! That was him who was caught with a hooker, but we all forgave him when he admitted to "doing a very bad, bad thing!" Have you seen him in Notting Hill? Be still my heart!
Ooh the pancakes look so delicious!
Have a very fun day BJ!
Love, Cori

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

BJ, Now you have me craving blueberry pancakes. I'll have to make some this weekend for my honey. They do look wonderful on your blue and white plates. I do not own any. I'll have to come up with something else.

And Hugh Grant, how yummy is he!!!

the pleasures of homemaking said...

I love the Little Church plate! All your blue and white plates are pretty. After pumpkin, blueberry is my next favorite pancake.

Coloradolady said...

Oh, the pancakes.....I am now starving!! Happy Blue Monday.

Kathleen Grace said...

aould be bluer than blueberry pancakes and blue transferware? I love them both:>)

Grandma Faith said...

I don't know if my mouth is watering because of the blueberry pancakes or the beautiful blue dishes. Maybe it's those big blue eyes. Have a great day!

nikkicrumpet said...

Sort of makes him less cute when you know about the "hooker" thing huh? Especially since he could have gone home to Elizabeth...what a dummy! Love your blue as usual...I wonder if there is a whole collection of those blue & white state plates. You'd think there would be....but then where on earth would you put them all!

Elizabeth said...

Well, thanks for the pic of Mr. Blue eyes, which is another movie he was in, I think!
Love the divided plate; I hate my food to touch!

Grandma Faith said...

I didn't notice your cruise counter. Remind me where you are going. My next cruise will be Dec. 18-21 to the Bahamas. Only 6 more days till you leave, lucky you!


Mmmmmmmm!!! My favorite pancakes! Now I want some...:o)

PEA said...

I'll be right over for some of those blueberry pancakes...yummmmm!! I so love all your blue plates, how beautiful they all are. My mom loves anything in blue and has quite a few dishes and such in blue patterns. As for Hugh Grant...yes, he was once caught with a hooker...but I still love his blue eyes! hehe xoxo

Leena said...

I made blueberry pancakes three days ago to my grandchildren,not quite your recipe but almost :)
When my husband came from a forest with blueberries, he brought also something for photograph. It`s here:

Blueberries,those wonderful plates and his eyes, what an combination, they together make me dizzy :)

We did cruise on Black Sea last May. I have many photos in my May`s posts :

Wonderful cruise to you and your family!

Cori G. said...

Hi BJ,
Notting Hill came out several years ago and he stars along side Julia Roberts. He was also in Restoration with Sam Neil and Meg Ryan...Too delicious in pumpkin breeches!

Shabby Kim said...

Hi BJ,

Those pankcakes look like pure heaven (and so does that blue eyed hunk named Hugh Grant)!! Love your collection of pretty blue plates. Maybe you should invite Mr. Blue Eyes over for a pancake breakfast someday:)

Have a great week!!

jeanne said...

BJ, Mmmmmmm blueberry pancakes are so good. This recipe with the buttermilk is over the top. I am drooling. Now, we do know we can't eat blueberry pancakes on anything unless it is blue and white. I do love the divided plates and all of the others. The rooster is different. I have never seen it before. So cute, just like whats his name, Oh yeah, Hugh Grant. Yes, he was hooked up with a hooker. LOL.

Hugs, Jeanne

santamaker said...

Susie Q said...

Meggie said...

Your blue plates are lovely, BJ! Theblueberry pancakes look heavenly but I'm afraid I'm the instant pancakes kinda gal. Yes, I believe Hugh Grant was caught with a hooker.

jeanne said...
