Homemade French Vanilla Blueberry Pancakes

Okay okay, maybe my photography skills were lacking this morning as I haphazardly slapped some homemade french vanilla blueberry pancakes on a paper plate for my sick boyfriend.  But don’t let the lazy presentation and photography fool you. These were out of this world.

“Feed a cold, starve a fever.”  A little nurse humor there, although I’m not sure which he had this morning.  A cold or a fever? Last night he was running a low-grade fever but it must have broke last night because he woke up starving this morning.  Men, such babies when they are sick!

I’ve never made homemade pancakes and ever since getting my KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer for Christmas all of a sudden I think I’m Betty Crocker. Well, at least that’s what my daughter told me.  A few people at work call me little Paula Deen, personally I’d rather be compared to Giada DeLaurentis or Rachel Ray! I digress. Where was I?…oh yes, homemade french vanilla blueberry pancakes.


1 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 cup Baileys French Vanilla Coffee Creamer
1 cup cut fresh blueberries


Add dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients whisk until lumps are out and fold in blueberries last.

Preheat nonstick pan on medium heat spray with nonstick Pam. Ladle in a scoop of batter. When it starts to bubble flip pancake. Remove and sprinkle with powered sugar. Serve with favorite syrup. Makes about 16-20 pancakes. Serves 8-10. I cut my ingredients in half for the two of us.

Someone had a smile on their face after breakfast this morning 🙂 My boyfriend thought they were pretty good too!

    Jean, he buys me lavish gifts. The least I can do is make him some homemade dishes to show my appreciation.

    Thanks for the nice smile compliment.

    i bet they were delicious. I like the touch with the vanilla creamer, never tried that before. What difference do you get by using the creamer versus vanilla extract? Btw thanks for following my blog through networked blogs and google connect 🙂

    Garbrielle, I actually found you through a #cupcake hashtag on twitter and discovered your Tweet about SweetDays that does decorating classes, which is incidentally right down the street from me. How awesome is that!!?

    The vanilla creamer idea was born a couple of years ago while having a girls weekend with my sister and some of her friends on Sanibel Island. We were whipping up some french toast for breakfast and instead of adding milk to the egg added different flavors of coffee creamer. It just gave it a little extra something. I like to take recipes and add my own spin on them. So that’s why the creamer instead of traditional vanilla extract.

    Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to reading and learning from your blog 🙂

    If your boyfriend doesn’t wake up every morning with a smile on his face, he must be about as sour as…uh…I am.
