  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cooking oil as needed

For the blueberry syrup

  • 2 cups blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar add a bit more to adjust the sweetness
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


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

For the syrup

  • Add the frozen blueberries, water, and sugar to a small saucepan.
  • Heat the mixture over medium heat until just starting to simmer.
  • Whisk the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water and add that to the hot blueberry mixture, stirring as you add it.
  • Bring back to a simmer and cook until thickened and glossy.
  • Add a pinch of salt and serve over hot pancakes.


Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Don't have buttermilk? You can mix milk and sour cream together 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.
