For gluten-free pancakes, swap in your preferred gluten-free flour mix or attempt buckwheat flour ( here’s our recipe for buckwheat pancakes).

Can I Utilize Frozen Blueberries in These Pancakes?

You can utilize fresh or frozen blueberries to make these pancakes It’s challenging to discover sweet fresh blueberries throughout the year. The good news is, this does not avoid us from getting our blueberry pancake repair!

When utilizing fresh blueberries, include the berries straight to the bowl with batter and fold them in. For frozen blueberries, avoid that and include the frozen berries straight to the raw side of the pancake in the pan By doing this, the frozen berries sink into the middle of the pancake and when you turn it, they fume and juicy.

( If you were to include frozen berries to the batter in the bowl and mix, the batter turns an uncommon blue-green color. It tastes excellent, however by including the berries straight to the pancake, they look much better.)

  • Shop the pancakes in a freezer-safe container or bag as much as 2 months.

  • Make Batter
  • 1 In a 2-cup measuring container or bowl, stir the milk and vinegar (or lemon juice) together, and after that reserved for 5 minutes. (This mix imitates buttermilk, which when blended with the baking soda later on in the recipe, makes the pancakes fluffy.)

    2 On the other hand, blend the flour, sugar, baking soda, and the salt in a medium bowl.

    3 Blend the egg, vanilla, and almond extract into the milk.

    4 Make a well in the center of the flour mix. Put the milk mix and melted butter into the well and utilize a fork to stir till you no longer see clumps of flour. It is all right if the batter has a couple of little swellings– it is essential not to over-mix the batter. The batter will be thick, however still pourable.

Adam and Joanne’s Tips

  • When determining your flour, before you scoop the flour into your determining cup, fluff or stir the flour in the container (or bag) initially, this aerates the flour and makes the measurement more precise. Additionally, you can stir the flour in the container, and after that scoop it into your determining cup. Then when the cup is complete, utilize a straight edge to scrape away the excess flour. Doing this avoids including excessive flour to the batter, which triggers the batter to be too thick.
  • Replacement for baking soda: To utilize baking powder rather of baking soda, neglect the vinegar or lemon juice required in the recipe and utilize one tablespoon of baking powder.
  • Non-dairy milk: These blueberry pancakes can be made with or without dairy milk. So do not hesitate to utilize your preferred non-dairy milk like almond, soy, cashew, oat, or hemp milk.
  • Gluten-free blueberry pancakes: Utilize your preferred store-bought gluten-free flour mix. We prefer Bob’s Red Mill.
  • Vegan/ egg-free pancakes: Change the eggs with flax eggs. To make a flax egg, mix one tablespoon flaxseed meal (ground raw flaxseed) with 2 1/2 tablespoons water. Set it aside for about 5 minutes to thicken then utilize to change the egg in the recipe.
