Good Morning


Can I interest you in some pancakes?

Some Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes?

With Orange Maple Butter?

I thought so. I had the same reaction when I saw these in the June issue of Martha Stewart Living.

They called to me. Basically begged me to make them. And I’m so glad I did.


Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes
Yield: about 16 pancakes

  7. Pour batter on griddle 1/4 cup at a time. Add some of the sugared blueberries to each pancake. Cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  8. Flip and cook the other side for about 2 minutes.

Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry Pancake

I started out doing three at a time, but my griddle was not as big as I like.

So I switched to doing one at a a time. Takes a little longer, but the pancakes are prettier.


Martha also offers a good tip. As you are making the pancakes. Keep the finished ones on a cookie sheet in the oven at 200 degrees F to keep them warm.

Then, when you’re all done.

Stack ’em and slap on some Orange Maple Butter

Naked Pancakes

Oh my! Then pour on the maple syrup.

Wait for it…


Wait for it…

  19. As a poor college kid, I love cooking your recipes for the guys in my dorm. Baking cake balls and passing them out to my dormmates made me feel like the domestic goddess in a room full of people that live off Ramen and Keystone Light. Thanks for everything!

  20. If someone was trying to get me to talk by torturing me, all they would have to do is shove a plate of these pancakes in my face and I’d spill the beans fast!

  21. I made these this morning, except I added canned pumpkin and left out the blueberries. This recipe is AMAZING. It’s my starter pancake recipe for any variation I try!

  48. Damn, those are some sexy pancakes! That first photo is just…well,beyond words. Perfection! I know what's for breakfast this weekend!

  49. I just made these and they were the best pancakes I've put in my mouth! Thanks for the inspiration!

  50. mel ip – yes.

  51. If I have frozen blueberries, should I defrost them first? Can't wait to try making them tomorrow!

  52. I made these this morning..finally. I can't believe I waited this long….They are amazing!

  53. I went 2 New York City in January during the time of the inauguration and I stayed in Washington Squire Hotel I had some blueberry pancake for the first time in my life and I LOVED it and craving them since then.

    looking at yours made me crave then even more…

    STOP torchering us Bakerella!!!!

  54. I made these with regular flour and then the next week with whole wheat flour.

    I think my family actually prefers the whole wheat version. It gives them a slightly nutty flavor that really sets off the blueberry and maple tastes.


    My kids dance around the kitchen while these are cooking because they can't wait for them to come off the griddle. (and this from a family that doesn't normally even like blueberries!)

  55. oh my word!

  56. I made these on Saturday and OMG, are they ever fabulous!!! Love how they get a little bit crispy on the edges! And the Orange Maple Butter?? It's not bad to just eat it with a spoon, right? Seriously, the butter was so good on them that they hardly even needed syrup.
    These will be made often in our house!

  57. made these for my anniversary breakfast over the weekend! fabulous!! can't wait to make them again and again and again!!

  58. Made them for Breakfast – Delish! You've done it again :)
