How To Make The Best Blackstone Pancakes

  1. Heat your Blackstone griddle to medium as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Use a squirt bottle to spread a thin layer of oil on the surface of the hot griddle.
  3. Add 1/3 cup of pancake batter in puddles about 2 inches apart on the griddle surface.
  4. Flip the pancakes when they start to get bubbly around the edges and cook them through.
  5. Serve with blueberry syrup and butter.

How to Make the Best Blueberry Syrup

  1. Add the frozen blueberries, water, and sugar to a skillet.
  2. Heat the blueberries and sugar until simmering over low to medium heat.
  3. Whisk the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water and add that to the hot blueberry mixture, stirring as you add it.
  4. Bring back to a simmer and cook until thickened and glossy.
  5. Add a pinch of salt, mix well and serve over hot pancakes.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Don’t have buttermilk? You can mix milk and sour cream to get a reasonable substitution. Mix 1/2 cup sour cream with 1 1/2 cups of milk and use it in place of buttermilk.
  • Fresh blueberries will also work in the sauce, but frozen is just fine.
  • Adjust the heat of your Blackstone so that the pancakes don’t get too dark.
  • You can keep the pancakes warm on the side of the Blackstone until you’re ready to eat. Just turn the heat off for that section.
