This XXL blueberry pancake is unbelievably moist, fluffy and exploding with juicy blueberries in every bite.—Just big enough for one hungry pancake-lover!
Alright, who’s down for a blueberry pancake the size of their FACE today??
Say heeeeeeeeeey to Mr. XXL blueberry pancake. Another one to add to the steadily-growing pancake archives. Are you sensing the fact that I am a complete and total pancake fuh-reeeeeeak??
It’s true. Join me in my pancake sanctuary where there is ZE-RO judging over mass quantities of pancakes made and devoured. ♥
Speaking of which, we need to talk about the ridiculous mass of today’s pancake. Did you notice how freakin’ GINORMOUS it is?? Is there any way that you could NOT notice that it’s about 3x the size of your average pancake??
This is a sign of good things to come, friends.
So. One pancake was born how? Because I recently realized that not everybody needs 10,000 pancakes for breakfast. (although that’s totally epic) Sometimes all you need is one big one the size of ‘yo FACE.
Unless you have a freakishly-huge family like me who totally binges on pancake-morning, chances are you find yourself left with like 5,000 additional pancakes, right? Uhmm obviously AFTER the second pancake feed frenzy of course…
Never fear, the solution is HERE. An XXL pancake like the ones you see in your dreams. (you know we’ve all had those)
There shall be no fighting over pancake leftovers. Mostly because there won’t BE any leftovers to fight over. And if you shovel it in fast enough, nobody will even be any the wiser that there was once a pancake in the house.
Singular. Uno pancake. For one person.
The early bird gets the worm for reaalz in a situation like this. 😉
I really must insist that you enjoy this pancake STRAIGHT off the skillet while it’s still warm. Slather that butter, sprinkle on some more blueberries and….
Drizzle that syrup and drizzle it good. We ARE, after all, only having one pancake today.
Thus equals diet-food. I pinky promise.
Each luscious XXL bite will melt in your mouth. The butter. The juicy blueberries. All that I’m-gonna-die fluffy texture. Sweet maple syrup.
*cue Sarah’s heart stopping from pancake joy*
And guys. You don’t even have to feel the guilt AT ALL here because again, you kept things on the lighter side and only had ONE pancake for breakfast.
One that happened to be the size of your face, but that’s just little details.
And that’s why your life is now so wonderful. ♥
One Big Blueberry Buttermilk Pancake
- 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- Maple syrup butter, and extra blueberries for serving
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk egg, oil, and buttermilk. Gently fold flour mixture into liquid until just combined. Fold in blueberries.
- Heat a large greased skillet over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot, pour batter into pan into one big circle. Cook pancake on first side until bubbles appear on surface and begin to pop (about 2 minutes) With a large spatula (or two spatulas) very carefully lift pancake and flip onto opposite side. Cook pancake on opposite side 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until golden-brown.
- Carefully transfer pancake to a large serving plate and enjoy warm with maple syrup, butter, and additional blueberries!
More pancake fun because uhhh, I clearly have a thing for ’em. 😉

That is definitely the ultimate pancake, Sarah! I love it! Such a great idea to just create one giant one and chow down. Love the fresh blueberries too! Pinned!
Thanks Gayle! The bigger the pancake the better, right?? 😉
YUM!! I have been wanting pancakes all morning, but didn’t have time to whip up a batch before work. I might just have to make pancakes for dinner tonight
Brinner ALWAYS sounds like an awesome plan to me! Enjoy, Chelsea!!
Laura @Petite Allergy Treats says
Bigger is better. This is proof. Lol, I often start making regular size pancakes and end up with 2 ginormous ones towards the end. Not being lazy; time efficient. :p
Haha! I’m totally the same way with my pancakes and I swear I’m not lazy either! Bigger is just BETTER in the pancake department. 🙂
Kelley @ Chef Savvy says
Wow this XXL pancake looks fantastic Sarah! Love that it’s loaded with (my favorite) blueberries!
Thank you Kelley!

You make the best looking pancakes! Why make a stack when you can have one massive pancake! Pinning!
Awww you’re so sweet, Jen! Thanks lady!!
Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom says
oh my gawd, Sarah, I am so down with this XXL blueberry pancake!! This seriously looks so good!
xoxoxo Thanks so much girlie!!
Kelly - Life Made Sweeter says
Oh my goodness, I love this idea, Sarah! I would much rather flip one ginormous pancake than having to stand at the hot stove flipping 5 more. This looks incredible!
Right?? One big ‘ol giant pancake is just the only way to go. 😉 Thanks Kelly!
Shelby @ Go Eat and Repeat says
I love massive pancakes! They are totally the most fun to eat!
Agreed! Thanks Shelby!
Kathy Mader says
Oh my goodness, I’m cracking up because this really is a GIANT pancake. I’ve been making Joy the Baker’s Single Serving Pancake for a while, which I thought was big until I saw yours 🙂 Looking forward to trying this ’cause I’m a pancake freak, too. When I was a child I’d get pancakes at the cafeteria. The waiter would bring them to the table and lift off the silver dome (I know, I’m old) and to this day I can still see and smell the steam wafting up from those incredible pancakes. Sigh.
Those sound like pretty awesome pancake memories!! I hope you end up trying this one, Kathy! I know you’ll love it!
haha yesssss! I love this one giant pancake! I rarely make pancakes and when I do we always have too many! This would definitely solve that problem!
Problem totally solved. 😉 Yaaay!
Manali @ CookWithManali says
woah XXL pancake, yes bring it on!!
After seeing this, I’m definitely feeling that bigger is better when it comes to pancakes. I know what I’ll be brunching on this weekend!
TRUTH! A bigger pancake = alwaaaays better. 😉
Kelly // The Pretty Bee: Cooking & Creating says
Wow, that is one HUGE pancake! That would save a lot of time for me, it’s family size! Make one and then share it! 🙂
Yes!! Perfect for sharing or for just yourself if you’re reaaaally hungry! LOL. Thanks Kelly!
Natalie @ Tastes Lovely says
I love this! Now I can stuff my face, but still say I only had 1 pancake. No one can judge me, haha!
Right?? It’s a WIN on so many different levels! 😀
Arpita@ The Gastronomic Bong says
Ohhh yummm!! look at those HUGE blueberry pancakes!! Dream! Love it 😀
Thanks Arpita!! You’re so sweet. 🙂
I found this recipe this morning while browsing FoodGawker and was immediately in love. I just made it for breakfast, but… I was totally unable to flip it. 🙁 This may because I used a skillet (don’t have a griddle). I can see this possibly working if you could just quickly plunk this over with all the space on a griddle. (Wondering if this could be adapted to bake in a cast iron skillet? Would that completely ruin the pancake texture?) Anyway, mine ended up like pancake version of scrambled eggs, but the sections that cooked properly tasted really yummy, and the batter was one of the most gorgeous pancake batters I’ve seen– light and fluffy. I could only eat about half, though– that’s A LOT of pancake!
I have not tried this pancake in a cast iron skillet, so I am unsure of that exact baking time and what the end result of texture and such would be like. I would be interested to hear if you try it though!
Just thought I’d let you know, after giving it some thought, I tried this again today. Instead of attempting to flip it over with a spatula, I slid the pancake onto a plate and then inverted it into the skillet. Worked perfectly! Yay! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll definitely be making this again and again. 🙂
Awesome to hear, Courtney! Thanks for the helpful feedback on how you made it work! I’ll have to try that method sometime. 😉
I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m a bit suspicious as to the cooking times. With a pancake that large and thick, there’s no way it will be cooked through to the middle. You’d have to lower the heat almost to zero and quadruple the cooking time, no?
The cooking time IS accurate and the pancake should fully cook in the middle—you can always cook it a little longer if it’s a little underdone..
