FAQ

Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes, frozen blueberries work well. No need to thaw them; just add directly to the pancakes while cooking.

How can I make the pancakes fluffier?

Let the batter rest for a few minutes after mixing. This allows the baking powder to activate, creating a fluffier texture.
