Blueberry Pancakes (from a muffin mix)


I love it when I can find multiple uses for an item. I like to know that I can make cookies from a cake mix. This recipe is that same kind of idea and it comes from Betty Crocker. You can make blueberry pancakes from a Betty Crocker blueberry muffin mix. You even use the juice from the can of blueberries in the box to make blueberry syrup. They turned out fabulous and the whole family loved them. They are a little different to make though. First thing is they take longer to cook. The recipe says 1 1/2 minutes for the first side, it really does take that long. I also had my skillet turned all the way up to 400 degrees. The other thing is these pancakes are a little on the delicate side so you need to be careful when you turn them over. Other than that, these are just like regular blueberry pancakes. This recipe would be very easy for dad to whip up with the kids on Mother’s Day.


Blueberry Pancakes (from a muffin mix)

1 package Betty Crocker wild blueberry muffin mix
1 3/4 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup maple-flavored syrup

Drain blueberries, reserving liquid; rinse blueberries and set aside. Stir muffin mix, water, oil and eggs in medium bowl just until blended. Gently stir blueberries into batter.

Grease heated griddle if necessary. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook about 1 1/2 minutes or until golden. Turn; cook 1 minute until golden.

Heat reserved blueberry liquid and syrup. Serve syrup with pancakes. This makes about 15 pancakes. For thicker pancakes you can reduce the water to 1 1/2 cups, but I just did the 1 3/4 cup.

  • I just made these using a store brand muffin mix – worked the same..and I only used half as the other half would just go to waste. I even made the syrup but didn’t use maple syrup (I’m not real fond of maple flavor) but I used another popular brand of pancake syrup. It was/is good but I think it would be more blueberrier if used some kind of white syrup like Karo or just a simple syrup with sugar and water added to the berry juice. Either way it was delicious.

  • I have been cooking with blueberries for the past six months. They are a great addition to any of the recipes I have used them. They add a good zing to the taste. I recently discovered a free blueberry book (with blueberry recipes). It is a good book and best of all it is free. It is called Blueberry Health Report. Here is a link if you are interested: http://www.traversebayfarms.com

  • What a great idea :) Luckily you can buy this Betty Crocker muffin mix here in Scotland, so I shall pick up a box next time I’m grocery shopping so I can try these pancakes :)

  • My kids would love those. In fact, I wish I had a muffin mix tonight. Those look better than the french toast I’m making for dinner. Yeah, I’m going all out tonight ;-)
