yooper blueberry buttermilk pancakes


For those of you that don’t know, a yooper is someone who lives in Michigan – above the Mackinac Bridge, in the Upper Peninsula. I am proud to call myself a yooper! We’re known for our wild growing blueberries and pure maple syrup. Although not many yoopers would have any clue how to pronounce “quinoa” or sprout a lentil, that’s okay because they make these!

  3. 1 teaspoon baking powder

  7. 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  8. 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Add egg mixture to flour mixture and mix until blended. Stir in blueberries. Pour (or scoop) onto buttered griddle. Flip when bubbly and dry. Serve and enjoy!
  1. No buttermilk? Just take a little less than 1 cup of milk and add some drops of lemon juice. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

I went the traditional way and topped mine with butter and local maple syrup. Try some Greek yogurt and more mashed berries!

I made these on Sunday and again last night. Sunday I made four huge pancakes and yesterday I made 6 medium. You could easily make a whole bunch of mini ones too! (which would be a lot easier to flip ;) ) You can half the recipe to make a single serving.

I think my photo editing is getting a lot better too :D now all I need is a real camera instead of using my iPhone!

Happy WIAW!


  1. Leigha!! Your pictures are awesome :) I sometimes use all the facial editing tools on Pic Monkey (Like I “spray tan” my toast LOL). And YES to pancakes!
