These Blackberry Pancakes (with Brown Sugar Butter) are a simple way to make your standard fluffy buttermilk pancake recipe a little extra delicious. Also, blackberries are underappreciated.



Buttermilk Pancakes

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Butter, for cooking

Blue & Blackberry Pancake Topping

  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1 tsp rose syrup (optional)


Buttermilk Pancakes

  1. Sift flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter.
  3. Barely combine wet and dry ingredients to form a lumpy batter. Please be careful not to overmix – having some streaks of flour remain is perfectly fine! (Optional: I like to let my batter sit for 10-15 minutes.)
  4. Melt butter over medium heat. Ladle 1/3 cup of batter on to the pan.
  5. The pancakes are ready to flip when bubbles appear on the surface, and the edges begin to brown – usually about 2-3 minutes per side.

Blue & Blackberry Pancake Topping

  1. Mix all the ingredients together over a medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until you reach your preferred consistency. (I prefer to allow it to thicken quite a bit.)
  2. Plate in a way that makes your heart sing. I added a dollop of brown sugar butter, and poured on the maple syrup!


  • All-Purpose Flour works just fine, but will result in pancakes that are ever-so-slightly less fluffy.
