Gluten-Free Blueberry-Buttermilk Corn Griddle Cakes

Yesterday, I received a generous gift: Isaiah woke up with his little sister and let me sleep in on a Sunday morning.

As a small token of my affection for both of my beautiful children, I cooked up these griddle cakes. I had blueberries sitting in the fridge and the thought of them together with buttery cornmeal made us all hungry. I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we did.

As a side note, I often make extra griddle cakes—without the blueberries—and freeze them for later. They’re great served with chili for dinner!

Gluten-Free Blueberry-Buttermilk Corn Griddle Cakes

Yield: 20

Serving Size: 3-inch pancakes


1 cup [Gluten-Free Pancake, Waffle & Biscuit Mix


1 cup cornmeal, preferably medium grind

½ teaspoon salt

1¼ cups buttermilk

2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten

¼ cup vegetable oil (or melted butter), plus more for greasing

Pure maple syrup, for serving


  1. 1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the pancake mix, cornmeal and salt. Add the buttermilk, eggs, oil and about ½ cup water (NOTE: Add as much or as little water as you want, depending on how thick or thin you like your pancakes.); stir until just combined.
  2. 2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Using a paper towel, lightly grease with oil. Pour the batter about ¼ cup at a time into the pan and cook until golden and set, about 2 minutes on each side.


To make these dairy-free, just substitute 1¼ cups non-dairy milk (I like rice milk) stirred together with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar. Also, you will not need to add the extra ½ cup water.


  1. I love the blueberries in these. How nice to get a sleep in too!

  2. These look and sound yummy!!! I love blueberry pancakes. I will have to give these a try. Thanks for sharing.

  3. These look awesome! My daughter is allergic to milk eggs and wheat… Could milk substitute work for this? We just found out a couple days ago about her allergies so I’m new to all this! Thank you!

  4. how do I get the pancake mix for this recipe? 🙂
