Fluffy blueberry buttermilk pecan pancake recipe is filled with blueberries and chopped pecans. Top with your favorite syrup, sauce or fresh fruit.

Blueberry buttermilk pecan pancakes would be delicious served for any meal of the day. They are wonderful for a Sunday brunch or a breakfast for your guest.

You can serve with butter, maple syrup, blueberry sauce or any syrup of your choosing. Pancakes are also delicious topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream or a simple sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar.

I love to have breakfast for dinner and this would make a delightful meal with sides of bacon, ham, sausage, hash browns, scrambled eggs and fresh fruit. Pick and choose what you like for your meal.

Make homemade it is always good!

My mom made this syrup a lot when we were kids. It is so much better than store bought and it is warm and delicious on hot buttered pancakes or waffles. If you do not have maple extract, don’t panic, it is just as delicious without it! 

If you decide on the spur of the moment to have pancakes but no syrup or topping give the homemade syrup and blueberry sauce a try!

Blueberry Sauce

Blueberry sauce is so easy and fast to make. I have used fresh and frozen blueberries and both are equally delicious. Give a try when there is no syrup to be found in the house. Serve it hot or cold, it delicious on ice cream too!


  • 3 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup water
  • 11/2 tablespoon corn starch, dissolve in 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Use a medium saucepan to put the blueberries in, cover with the water.
  2. Add to the saucepan sugar and the vanilla extract.
  3. Cook the mixture over a medium-high heat until there is a low boil and the berries start to bust apart.
  4. In a small bowl dissolve the cornstarch in 3 tablespoons of the water, add to the blueberry mixture, this will start thickening the sauce.
  5. Bring the mixture to a full boil. Reduce the temperature to low and simmer until the sauce reaches the thickness you like, about 3 minutes.
  6. Add the remaining ½ cup of blueberries to the mixture after removing from the heat.
  7. Makes about 6 servings.

In the Texas Hill Country we have lots of pecan trees. If we have a good year with them we have a lot to eat and cook with! I do not know that it is a Texas cuisine. It just to my taste, I love nuts!

Margielynn, The combination of blueberries and pecans is enticing? Is this a particular characteristic of Texan cuisine to use pecans?

frankbeswick on 07/13/2017

That's great.

Margielynn on 07/12/2017

Frankbeswick we were raised homemade cooking and we had a large garden!

Make your own maple syrup, of course! Home-made anything is often the best. Remember that the syrup was home-made before it was industrially produced. Why do I say this? Veronica and I were raised by a mother who had a deep belief in home made and home grown food. The result was that we were well fed and are healthy, so what else could we say? She passed her commitment on to us.

Dustytoes, you have at times inspired me with your comments. Blueberry pancakes! The berries on my allotment are just becoming ready: raspberries, gooseberries, and blueberries! Ideas begin to arise in my mind.

Hi dustytoes I am sure your NJ maple syrup is much better!

dustytoes on 07/12/2017

The only kind of pancakes I eat are blueberry, and I must have some NH real maple syrup on them! I never knew you could make your own maple syrup... interesting.
