Blueberry Pancakes

I don't usually blog about the recipes I use my home grown produce in, but I thought you might just like to see my delicious Sunday breakfast. I have to confess that I didn't make it myself, Mick usually cooks breakfast on a weekend so I passed the recipe to him and away he went. Doesn't it look delicious?


I've had a good blueberry harvest this year, it's about time as the last few years have been lean, but it looks like we're back on track again.


I'm the chief pancake maker in our house as Mick isn't usually very successful with them but he did himself proud with these.


If you've got an abundance of blueberries and would like to try this recipe, it's the American Blueberry Pancakes on the BBC Good Food website, a great place to find recipes.


I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you do try them, the blueberries give a delicious tang against the sweet syrup, yum yum.

  5. Delicious I m drooling . I have read your earlier post about giving your parents a veg box, I am so jealous. Such colour and there is certainly no taste like home grown

    1. That's so true. I don't think supermarkets can compete at all with home grown, for taste or freshness.

    1. It's a few years since I've had such a good blueberry harvest, it's been worth the wait.

  8. Good grief, I've said it before, I'll say it again, that man is a gem. There were lots of blueberries on my bushes this year, but a family of blackbirds have had the whole lot. I haven't had the heart to stop them. They're looking beautifully healthy though. CJ xx

    1. He's not bad. Blackbirds love blueberries, as you've discovered to your cost. My bushes are in containers quite near to the house so the birds tend to leave them alone, it's just the odd blackbird who decides to brave it, I suppose the blueberries are just too tempting.

  11. It's my 1st year for my blueberries so I can't wait for their crop next year, and the following years. My later raspberries are beginning to ripen.

    1. I've had a few years where my blueberry bushes haven't produced very much at all so it's nice to have a good year. We all enjoy them so it's good to have enough to go round.

  12. Ooh, what a delicious looking breakfast and even better cooked for you! I wonder if I should try blueberries in pots not thought of that?

    1. Blueberries grow really well in pots as you can control the medium they're grown in. They like an acidic soil so it's easy to just fill a container with ericaceous compost.

  13. Oh your Sunday breakfast look decidedly good Jo. No doubt you passed your compliments on to the chef.

    1. He did very well considering pancakes aren't his forte, he's a very good cook otherwise though and I certainly did pass on my compliments on Sunday.

  14. since Mick was so successful with those, you must encourage him to do more cooking! It certainly worked for me. Until a few years ago Jane did about 99% of all the cooking, but these days the balance has changed.

    1. Mick does cook, in fact when I was working, he used to cook 90% of the time. It's only his pancakes which usually turn out a little iffy. He actually enjoys cooking which I'm pleased about as he's only too happy to get in the kitchen and give me a night off.

  15. Yum Jo, you can't beat a good pancake for breakfast, especially using your own produce. Lucky you getting them cooked for you as well, wish that happened here.

    1. Mick always cooks breakfast on a weekend, I'm very lucky. It made a change having blueberry pancakes, I'm hoping I get the same again this weekend.

    1. You must try them, they're absolutely delicious. The sweetness of the syrup contrasts so well with the sharpness of the blueberries.
