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.
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.
It takes 2 minutes in our microwave for this fluffy microwave pancake perfection!
Add a little syrup on top and you’re ready for breakfast.
It’s fluffy pancake perfection down to the last bite.
Pretty great, right? You can prep your breakfast on Sunday and be set for your week.
My favorite pancake recipe:
Favorite Pancake Recipe
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 egg beaten
- Add your flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the milk, butter, and egg to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Some lumps are ok.
- Heat a griddle and add butter before cooking pancakes or add pancakes to a mason jar for microwave pancakes later.
I hope you get a chance to try these blueberry pancakes in a jar. You can experiment with other berries, apples, chocolate chips, etc.
