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.

Mason Jar Blueberry Pancakes

I use a ladle when I make pancakes on the griddle, so I used a ladle and scooped in an almost full ladle into a mason jar.  Then I sprinkled some blueberries on top – I used frozen blueberries (since we have them on hand for smoothies).

Repeat another layer of pancake batter, blueberries and then finish with 1/2 a ladle full of pancake batter on top.

You can put the lid on an store them in your fridge until you are ready to eat them.

When you’re ready, remove the metal lid and ring, and then place the glass jar in the microwave.

2 Minute Microwave Blueberry Pancakes in a Jar



  1. 3 stars
    I made this in my oversized 18 oz mug. It definitely grows. Use a bigger jar/mug/bowl than you think. It also took about 4 minutes in the microwave and still wasn’t done completely on top. The longer cook made the bottom get tough and chewy. The whole recipe could probably make 4-6 regular pancakes. The serving size or output is not mentioned in this recipe so just be aware of how much you are getting yourself into. It would be good if you were making a bulk batch of batter. It’s just as easy to make this on a griddle or stove than in the microwave. Next time I would cut this in half (might be hard to do since the original uses a whole egg but I guess you can use half of the egg after it’s beaten) for a single serving. Overall the recipe was just okay and I’m glad I tested it out.

    1. Hi,
      The recipe is for a full batch. The directions above instruct to add just 1 1/2 ladles to the jar. Hope that helps!

    1. Tried this, this morning, don’t use a medium mason jar, over flowed into my microwave. Next time, gotta use A large jar. Unless you are saving batter, use a large jar.

  2. Can’t wait to try this!! I can make the batter and take to work and take a jar. Oh yummy! Any other breakfast like this?
