Blueberry Pancakes for our Birthday Boy!

Our oldest child, Matthew, turned 25 this weekend. It’s hard to imagine so much time has passed. It feels like yesterday we became a family and we were bringing him home from the hospital. All 7 lbs, 6 oz of him…

He’s all grown up now and moved out of the house, but to celebrate, his Dad and I made blueberry pancakes for breakfast on his birthday!

I made the picture antique because we’ve teased Matt about being a quarter of a century old now! I’m not sure who that’s harder for, us or him. 🙂

These are awesome pancakes that I made with Bisquick and fresh blueberries! The recipe is simple. Of course, if you have your own favorite family recipe, you can use it too, just add the blueberries at the end!

Birthday Boy Blueberry Pancakes

2 cups Bisquick
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 TBS vegetable oil
1 pint fresh blueberries

Heat your griddle.

Mix Bisquick, eggs, buttermilk and oil together.

Gently fold in berries being careful not to break any berries. If you break many blueberries, you’ll have very blue pancakes. Which might be fun, but kinda weird at the same time!

Add a bit of butter to the grill and let it melt. Add scant 1/4 cup of batter to make small pancakes.

Flip the pancakes when the edges are dry and you see bubbles across the surface.

Continue to cook for about a minute or so. Transfer to a warm plate and serve immediately with butter and syrup!

Here is a picture of all my children taken just last week! They are all grown up!

Matthew is there on the left, then Amy and Evan. Evan just turned 18 and will graduate from high school next week. Gorgeous, aren’t they? I think we’ll make blueberry pancakes for ourselves on each of their birthdays. Time to start new traditions now that there are no more children in our house, right?

  1. These pancakes look amazing, and healthy blueberries too! It all balances out right? Really enjoyed reading your story 🙂

  2. I’m not a careful mixer, and therefore always end up with blue-tinted pancakes. 🙂 I like your idea of making blueberry pancakes for yourselves on each of your children’s birthdays – a great tradition!

  3. Happy birthday, Matthew!!!
