Blueberry Pancake Bake
Blueberry pancakes baked together into a delicious breakfast casserole. Perfect for brunch!
Yield: 6-8 servings
For the pancakes:
  • 2 cups (240 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (500 ml) buttermilk
  • ¼ cup (56 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup (170 grams) blueberries
To assemble:
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1½ cups (325 ml) whole milk
  • 1 cup (250 ml) heavy cream
  • ½ cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Pancakes from above
  • ½ cup (85 grams) blueberries
For the topping:
  • ½ cup (60 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (55 grams) brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup (56 grams) butter, cold and cut into cubes
To make the pancakes:
  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine the buttermilk, butter, vanilla and eggs. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until almost smooth, it's okay if a few lumps remain. Stir in the blueberries.
  2. Heat some butter in a skillet. Pour ¼ cup of the batter onto the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Let cool completely. Pancakes can be made up to 3 days ahead, store in the fridge.
To assemble the pancake bake:
  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter. Place the pancakes in the baking dish, layering them up against each other almost vertically. It may be helpful to cut the pancakes in half and place cut-side down.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla. Pour over the pancakes, making sure they all are moistened. Sprinkle the blueberries over the top.
  3. To make the topping, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture looks like coarse sand. sprinkle over the pancakes.
  4. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours and up to overnight. when ready to bake, take out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature while oven preheats. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Bake until golden and center is set, about 50-60 minutes. If the topping browns too quickly, cover with aluminum foil. Let cool for 15-30 minutes before serving to let it firm up. Serve with powdered sugar, maple syrup and more blueberries.

      This is a beautiful recipe! We are huge pancake lovers in my house, in addition, we have included buttermilk pancakes in our women’s dieting group and have achieved excellent weight loss. The secret is in the buttermilk when used in a science food diet.

    dear Annalise, really awesome recipe…. but we are vegetarian can i make it without eggs? what should i use instead of egg?

    • Annalise says:

      The custard base requires eggs to set, and I don’t have any experience using an egg substitute so I’m afraid I can’t make any recommendations. Sorry!

    Sooo going to make this! A farewell for some very good friends coming up. Didn’t get to have the pancake breakfast I’d planned for them.. So very glad you put this recipe out there:)

    I totally cheat when making this. I buy frozen pre made blueberry pancakes in the freezer section, cut them half and just throw the rest together. It is fabulous and so easy. Everyone raves about it! ❤️
