Before we dive into the recipe, let's take a moment to appreciate the significance of blueberries in British Columbia. These little fruits thrive in the province's fertile soils and moderate climate, making BC one of the top blueberry producers in the world. Not only are blueberries bursting with sweetness but they're also packed with antioxidants and vitamins, making them a healthy addition to your breakfast table.

Fluffy BC Blueberry Pancakes Recipe:

Blueberry pancake ingredients


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • 1 cup fresh BC blueberries

  • Dash of cinnamon (Optional)


  1. Preheat Your Griddle: Begin by preheating your griddle or skillet over medium heat. This will ensure even cooking for your pancakes.

  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This dry mixture forms the base of your pancake batter.

  3. Create the Pancake Batter: In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then add the buttermilk and melted butter. Mix well. Gradually pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, stirring until just combined. It's okay if there are a few lumps—this contributes to the fluffiness!

  4. Fold in the Blueberries: Gently fold in the fresh BC blueberries. The burst of sweetness from these berries is what sets these pancakes apart.

  5. Cook to Perfection: Lightly grease the griddle with a bit of butter or oil. Pour ladlefuls of batter onto the griddle, creating pancakes of your desired size. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.

  6. Serve and Enjoy: Stack your blueberry pancakes high and serve them warm with a drizzle of pure BC maple syrup. Each bite is a celebration of local flavours and the joy of indulgence.
