Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use frozen blueberries for this pancake recipe?
Sure! If you can’t get your hands on fresh blueberries, frozen blueberries would work. It’s important to get rid of the excess liquid in our blueberries to use them in our recipe. Frozen blueberries tend to bleed when tossed in the batter and cooked. This will give our pancakes patches of blue which is not ideal for blueberry pancakes. So what we can do to prevent our blueberries from bleeding would be to thaw them, rinse and pat them dry. Lastly, toss them in a bowl with flour to coat the blueberries, and voila! No more ugly colored patches in your pancakes.
How do I store my blueberry pancakes?
You can freeze your pancakes for up to 4 weeks. Just let them cool to room temperature, lay them flat on a baking sheet, and store them in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours. Once frozen, stack your pancakes and transfer them to a freezer bag. Reheat them by defrosting them for 30 minutes then heating them in a warm oven or toaster. Don’t reheat them in the microwave to avoid having rubbery pancakes.
