blueberry flapjacks

This was the second weekend I made these winners.  Flapjacks just has a ring to it unlike pancakes, don't you think?!  This recipe is from Martha, and although not the most healthy, I'd say these compete with a good restaurant style pancake.  Probably because of the butter and oil you add right into the batter... 

I didn't have buttermilk on hand when I decided to make these (who really does?) but I simply added 1 tablespoon of white distilled vinegar to 1 1/2 cups milk and let it set from the beginning. Homemade buttermilk kids. Here's the recipe- thanks Martha. 


Makes 10
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted, plus more, softened, for skillet and serving
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup blueberries, plus more for garnish
  • Pure maple syrup, for serving


  1. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, 1 tablespoon butter, and 2 tablespoons oil; whisk into flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Set batter aside.
  2. Heat 1/2 teaspoon butter and remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in 1/3 cup batter. Cook until small bubbles form, about 3 minutes. Flip; cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter, adding butter as needed. Serve with butter and syrup; garnish with berries.
