The first time that I made these blueberry pancakes I was in pancake heaven. They are everything you hope for in a blueberry pancake; big, fluffy and full of plump blueberries.
These are definitely brunch worthy pancakes and they are simple to make.
The recipe yields 4-6 servings but don't worry, they freeze easily for use on another day.

Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes
( level: easy / time: 30 minutes / yields: 4-6 servings )
( adapted from Trisha Yearwood's Blueberry Brunch Pancakes )
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk, plus more if needed
1 cup greek yogurt ( I used Greek Gods Honey Vanilla Greek Yogurt )
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract ( I used Trader Joe's Pure Bourbon Vanilla Extract )
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
• one •
In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
• two •
In a separate large bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. Add in the milk, greek yogurt, half the melted butter and the vanilla, whisking to blend.
• three •
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the egg mixture into it. Whisk the ingredients together until blended.
• four •
Fold in the blueberries and lemon zest.
• five •
Over medium heat, heat a large skillet or griddle and coat with the remaining melted butter. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake into the skillet. ( I used an 1/4 measuring cup for this part. )
• six •
Depending on the size of your skillet or griddle, cook 3 - 4 pancakes at a time. Wait until the batter begins to bubble up and the edges are crisp. Flip pancakes over and cook on the other side for about a minute until done.
• seven •
Add honey or pure maple syrup and enjoy!
How to Freeze leftover pancakes:
- Wait until the pancakes cool to room temperature.
- Layer a sheet of parchment or wax paper in between the pancakes so that they don't stick together.
- Put pancakes in a freezer bag or your choice of freezer container and mark the date.
- Freeze up to 3 months.
