Blueberry Pancakes with White Chocolate Recipe

For this recipe you’ll need the following ingredients which are easily found year round in most grocery stores.

Additionally, you will want a non-stick griddle to cook your pancakes. I like using my electric copper griddle.

To make the pancakes follow these simple instructions.

Start by heating the griddle to 350 degrees.

Next, in a small bowl, combine the milk, whipping cream and lemon juice. Stir to combine and set aside for 5 minutes. This essentially sours the milk. You can also substitute equal parts of buttermilk for the milk, and cream and leave out the lemon juice.

Separate the egg white and yolk into separate small bowls. Set aside the egg yolk.

Vigorously whisk the egg white with a fork until light and frothy. You can also use a whisk attachment in your mixer to froth the egg whites. I like to use my Kitchenaid mixer for this. Don’t whisk too much or you’ll end up with meringue. You want it frothy, but not stiff. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, pour in the milk mixture along with the egg yolk and vanilla extract and stir to combine.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sugar, give it a quick stir to combine the ingredients.

You now have 1 bowl with dry ingredients, 1 bowl with the milk mixture, and 1 bowl with egg white.  Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until no lumps are present. The batter should be thinner than a cake batter.

Now, gently fold the egg whites into the batter until it is almost integrated but some egg white is still separate.  You don’t want to over stir since you’ve got some lovely volume with the egg whites and over stirring will flatten your batter.

Fold in the blueberries and white chocolate very carefully just until integrated.

Spread the butter onto the griddle and ladle out 1/3 cup batter at a time. Let cook for about 3 minutes. Check the bottom of the pancake and if it’s a nice golden brown then it’s time to flip.

Blueberry Pancakes with White Chocolate

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

These pancakes are sweet, tender, and so good when you combine the fruity flavors of blueberries with the sweetness of white chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup shaved white chocolate or white baking morsels, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

    1. Heat griddle to 350 degrees.
    2. In a small bowl, combine the whole milk, whipping cream and lemon juice. Stir to combine and set aside for 5 minutes.
    3. Separate the egg white and yolk into separate small bowls. Set aside the egg yolk.
      Vigorously whisk the egg white with a fork until light and frothy. Set aside.
    4. In a medium bowl, pour in the milk mixture along with the egg yolk and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
    5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sugar. Stir to combine.
    6. You now have 1 bowl with dry ingredients, 1 bowl with the milk mixture, and 1 bowl with egg white. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until no lumps are present.

Notes

You can serve with some whipped cream and a side of bacon or sausage links for even more breakfast goodness.

Don’t you just love blueberries?

Plant your own blueberry bush. This way you can have the freshest blueberries possible. They grow well in most of the U.S. and you can preserve them simply by freezing for use year round.

Don’t have a green thumb? Stock up on Blueberry Jam, it’ll taste great on biscuits or croissant rolls any time of the day, but especially as a breakfast treat.

Use a Blueberry Scrub to exfoliate and cleanse your skin and get the added benefits of those healthy antioxidants.
