Oven-Baked Blueberry Pancake

IMG_8871 - Version 2

When I saw the photo of this pancake in Martha Stewart Living, I had to have it!! My daughter felt the same way. When I pulled it out of the oven, she said that it looked just like the picture in the magazine! What a complement- although the biggest complement was that she said she loved it so much she wanted it for her birthday breakfast (in November…)!! 🙂 This recipe was adapted from Martha Stewart Living; I used low-fat buttermilk and baking soda as a substitute for whole milk. So pretty & tasty! So much easier than flipping pancakes too. Yay for blueberry season! 🙂

A perfect addition to Fiesta Friday #19 at the Novice Gardener this week (especially since I will make it there for for breakfast today!).

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon for pan
  • 1 cup blueberries (about 5 ounces)
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for serving
  • pure maple syrup, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in upper third. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet (or other nonstick ovenproof pan) in oven.
  2. Whisk together flour, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, and melted butter in another bowl. Whisk milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
  3. Remove skillet from oven and add remaining 1 tablespoon butter, swirling to coat.
  4. Pour in batter and smooth top with an offset spatula. Sprinkle evenly with blueberries and remaining 1 teaspoon granulated sugar.
  5. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes (on convection) to 25 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool 5 minutes before dusting with confectioners’ sugar and serving with syrup.

  5. I LOVE blueberries! And pancakes, of course 😀 It seems like the perfect combination 🙂 I must definitely try this! Looks sooooooo delicious! Thanks for bringing this to FF! Happy Fiesta Friday!

  6. This looks better than the magazine Josette! Gorgeous and must be fun to bake in skillet :).

  7. This looks great! Question though: I’m assuming the blueberries are fresh. So you think I could use dried blueberries and get a similar result?

    • I would substitute frozen blueberries in a heartbeat. Not quite the same- but almost. I will have to do that in November!! 🙂

      • Thanks. We don’t get blueberries much over here and I have a whole bag of dried blueberries just waiting to be used up lol. Frozen makes sense though, will give it a shot! My bday is November as well so perhaps you could send some for me then! Lol

  8. Great job Josette- this looks pretty delicious 🙂

  9. Awww what your daughter said was so sweet! She’s right though, this is beautiful! And those blueberries… I’m imagining them bursting in my mouth now… I’ve got to try this! Especially since it looks so easy!

  10. I love blueberries and had never thought of making a pancake in an oven before! I’m going to have to give it a shot. Thank you so much for sharing and bringing these to FF! 😀

  11. I love blueberry in pancake, but this one looks very special indeed. Oh I want this for my breakfast tomorrow.

  12. this looks so beautiful! Can a cake pan be used for this, or a heavy-bottomed skillet is necessary? I suppose then it would be called a blueberry cake. 🙂

  13. Great idea as I have never made a pancake in the oven. Blueberry is my favorite 🙂

  14. wow, this looks absolutely delicious!

  15. Josette- this looks so amazing! Truly! I want a piece!! 🙂 Bookmarking! 🙂

  16. Sinfully Tempting

    I love that this can be done in a cast iron skillet! I use mine all the time, but never would have thought to use it for an oven pancake. I can’t wait to try this, thanks so much for bringing it to the party! 🙂

  17. omg, I must try this recipe, love blueberry pancakes and this one is nice and thick, thanks for sharing! pinned

  18. We will soon be in blueberry season and I will make your wonderful recipe for sure! This looks heavenly! 😀

  19. Wait a second! You did know I was coming, and you did bake a cake. A Pancake Cake, but still a cake. So thank you! Seriously, thank you for this wonderful summery recipe and for bringing it to this week’s party. I love that you used buttermilk, too, it makes pancakes taste so much better I think.

    • I think buttermilk is almost essential to a pancake… I adapt many pancake recipes to include it. 🙂 By the way- you are too much… I DID know you were coming, so I had to bake a (pan)cake! 🙂 It’s my trademark!! Happy Fiesta Friday!! 🙂 Have a great weekend!!

      • Cheers, . . . that’s what my husband always says . . . in fact he uses an acronym “YATM” because I get to silly! Have a good weekend yourself!

  20. The more recipes I see from you, Josette, the more I know I would LOVE for you to cook for me! Looks absolutely delicious! 😛

    So if you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you just use 3/4 cup whole milk and leave out all the baking soda?
