Easy 2-minute blueberry pancakes in a jar are the perfect busy morning pancake recipe. Prep mason jars at the beginning of the week and you can microwave them in the morning for hot, fresh pancakes when you want them.
Making Blueberry Pancakes in a Mason Jar
Weekday mornings are always short on time so anything that makes a good breakfast faster and easier is a win in my book.
This can be made with your favorite, homemade pancake recipe or with a pancake mix – whatever suits your fancy. You can find my favorite pancake recipe below.Jump to Recipe
After making my favorite pancake recipe, I grabbed my pint size mason jars and some blueberries.
I use a ladle when I make pancakes on the griddle, so I used a ladle and scooped an almost full ladle into the bottoms of jars. Then I sprinkled some blueberries on top. I used frozen blueberries (since we have them on hand for smoothies). You could use fresh juicy blueberries though.
Repeat another layer of pancake batter, and some more blueberries, and then finish with 1/2 a ladle full of pancake batter mixture on top.
Cover top of jar with the lid and then seal jar with the rings and store your blueberry buttermilk pancakes in your fridge until you are ready to eat them.
Blueberry Pancakes Jars in the Microwave
When you’re ready, remove the metal lid and ring, and then place the glass jar in the microwave.
It takes 2 minutes in our microwave for this fluffy microwave pancake perfection! You’ll need to test it out in your microwave. Maybe start with 1 minute 45 seconds and add as needed.
Pour a little maple syrup on top and you’re ready for breakfast.
It’s perfect pancakes that are fluffy down to the last bite.
Pretty great, right? You can prep your breakfast on Sunday and be set for your week.
