Mason Jar Blueberry Pancakes

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.

2 Minute Microwave Blueberry Pancakes in a Jar


  1. 2 stars
    This was a fantastic idea, but it overflows the jar no matter what size jar you use. It builds up air below the batter while cooking and pushes the pancake up and out of the jar. So my jar was almost empty by time the batter was fully cooked. I wish I could attach a picture! It made us laugh every time! Thanks for the adventure!

    1. We tried it again today, with a twist. We put a straw in to the bottom and made sure it didn’t have any dough in it. When it cooked, the air that built up in the bottom was able to escape thru the straw. So it worked! This made a great science experiment!

  2. 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.

  3. 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?
