Banana and Blueberry Pancakes with Cinnamon-Vanilla Butter

Banana Blueberry Pancakes

I love pancakes. I love when people make them for me, I love having something so warm and fluffy for breakfast, I love that you can doll ‘em up with fruit and other fixings, or eat them plain. Pancakes are just so comforting and fun to eat. But, until about a year ago, I was pretty terrible at making them. Somehow, I could make vanilla crêpes, but I couldn’t produce a pancake without a bit of… okay, a lot of burn.

Blueberry Banana Pancakes Recipe

See, for the past seven years or so, my husband Mark has manned the breakfast making. Start to finish, he does it all and it’s divine! After years of me trying to help and get in his way, though, I’ve picked up a few pointers and I can make a pretty darn good pancake. Hallelujah, rejoice, hooray!

So, here I present to you my favorite fluffy pancake recipe and flavor: Banana and blueberry, with a touch of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Topped with a little powdered sugar, maple syrup and cinnamon-vanilla butter (made with my homemade vanilla extract), they are total pancake ecstasy!

Banana Blueberry Pancakes Recipe

Whether you make the breakfast at home or rely on someone else, I urge one of you to cook up these easy, delicious banana and blueberry pancakes. They’re moist, subtly sweet and full of juicy blueberries and mashed bananas, and every bite melts in your mouth. I’d say that’s a good way to start the day!
