Cooking With Beer: Blueberry Pancakes And Beer

One of my favorite dinners is breakfast for dinner. After a long day at my day job, I can’t resist some comfort food like blueberry pancakes and bacon. It gets even better when you throw in some beer!

When I saw this recipe for Blue-Beer-y Pancakes, over at, I ran out and to the store and picked up the ingredients. I couldn’t wait to try it!

My version is definitely based on the Blue-Beer-y Pancakes, but I have slightly modified it. My version is slightly simpler, perfect for the culinary connoisseur that’s in a rush.

Ingredients For 8 Pancakes (Two Servings)

  • 2/3 Cup Hungry Jack Complete Wheat Blends Pancake Mix
  • No Stick Spray Or Butter
  • ½ Cup Blueberries
  • 1 bottle of Florida Ave Blueberry (or your favorite blueberry ale)


Mix together the pancake mix with beer, based on the directions on the box. Add in blueberries. The amount of blueberries you add in can vary, depending on how juicy delicious you want it to be.

Cook pancakes like normal.

Serve with butter and blueberry syrup (if you don’t think that’s over doing it). A few strips of bacon on the side, doesn’t hurt.

There’s only a hint of the alcohol in the pancakes, just enough to add a little bit of flavor. Overall, a really simple recipe, that tastes delicious. Can be made with an berries and any berry ale, I’m thinking strawberries and Abitia’s Strawberry Harvest Lager next.

I'm a former coffee blogger, but I’ve been getting to know some really good craft beers and really getting into home brewing. I couldn’t resist starting this little project called Passion For The Pint. When I’m not blogging about coffee or beer, you can find me exploring New Orleans’ wide range of eateries, rooting for the New York Yankees (don’t hate me, I’m originally from New York), working out to burn off the beer calories or reading about beer.
