Blueberry Sour Cream PancakesWell, hi there Wine & Glue readers! This is Jen Nikolaus from Yummy Healthy Easy. I’m super excited to be here today! Lisa has been someone I’ve looked up to for a long time and I am thrilled to be guest posting on her amazing blog! Also, I have a crazy awesome recipe I’m sharing today, just for you!


In my house, that’s all I need to say to get some serious freak out reactions.

I have four boys and they get super excited when I make certain meals. Pancakes are one of those freak out meals. I get begged to make them on almost every Saturday morning and for random breakfast for dinner occasions.

Blueberry Sour Cream PancakesNeedless to say, my boys are happily my pancake guinea pigs. I’ve tried just about every recipe out there and have several different kinds of pancake recipes up on my blog. But my favorite kinds are the ones with fruit in them, especially blueberries.

You can’t go wrong with a stack of blueberry pancakes. But what’s even better? Blueberry syrup to drizzle over the top! Blueberry Sour Cream PancakesThese pancakes are fluffy, rich and full of blueberries. They’re super easy to make, too. So is the homemade syrup! Four ingredients and you just simmer it on the stove. It’s light and full of blueberries and flavor.

The combo of the pancakes and syrup is seriously the best thing in the whole entire world. Since summer is around the corner, fresh blueberries are the way to go but you can also use frozen as well. My boys LOVE these pancakes! They’re the perfect way to celebrate those warm summer mornings!Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes

Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes with Fresh Homemade Syrup

(tap # to scale)


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Truvia sweetener or 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk + a little more as necessary to thin batter out
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Syrup:
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Truvia sweetener or 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries


  • Combine flour, baking powder, Truvia and salt in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs and add in the milk, and sour cream. Stir mixture into dry ingredients, just until moistened. Fold in the blueberries. If batter is too thick, lightly stir in more milk until the desired consistency. Pour batter by 1/4 cups onto a hot greased griddle or pan. Flip over when bubbles start to form on the top. Makes about 20 pancakes.
  • For syrup: In a large saucepan, combine water, cornstarch and Truvia until smooth. Add blueberries. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes or until thickened and blueberries start to pop open. Remove from heat and serve with cooked pancakes. Enjoy!

    We were on quite the time crunch this morning, but have all been craving pancakes recently so decided to see if I could make some. I came across this recipe and loved how few ingredients it had and how quick it was to put together. We didn’t have milk, so in a rush I tried water and it worked absolutely perfect for us ( i am adding that comment in case someone else is only missing milk or hesitant to use it for some reason.). They were on the thinner side but that is how we usually prefer them and they cook faster that way anyway, so win win for us.
    I asked my family later how they enjoyed them and they said the loved them and one said they were the best pancakes they had had in a long time! Even without any topping. They are all hoping i make them again soon.
    I don’t actually like blueberries, but I got a lucky and the last pancake was free of them so I got to try! Yumm!
    We didn’t have enough blueberries for the syrup although i was happy to see your recipe. I didn’t realize it would technically be so quick and easy! I wanna try with raspberries too.
    Lastly, thank you for putting the sugar amount along with the Truvia. We don’t use the latter but thanks to you I didn’t have to try to figure out the conversion.
    The only trouble I had was finding a way to customize the serving size. There is a note that says to clip the # to scale but unfortunately there was none to be found. luckily I was able to just cut all measurements in half. Although had we not been rushed 20 pancakes would have been lovely. Thanks for all you do :D
