Pancakes a la Violet Beauregarde

The other day I made blueberry pancakes.

But, I wanted my blueberries a bit sweeter before I added them to the batter. So I tossed them with some sugar and put them in the microwave for 2 minutes.

The resulting blueberries were perfectly sweet and syrup-y!

In they went, juice and all...
and whala!

Pancakes a la Violet Beauregarde* were born.

...and yes, they were delicious!


*For those who don't know, Violet Beauregarde is the girl from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory who turns into a blueberry.


  1. Neat! I've never let my blueberries melt into my pancakes. I'll have to try this!

  2. They look delicious but more importantly, I love the name!!!

  3. Ooh yummy!! Those look so good.

  4. what a beautiful color and they look so yummy!

  5. They are definitely colorful! I think I will use the rest of my blueberries to try this out. Forget trying another pie. AND...I knew the name as soon as I read it! I love me some Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!!

  6. Yummy! I love blueberry pancakes so will have to steal this idea.

  7. Those look like so much fun... think my blueberry hating daughter would eat them???

  8. Recognized the name of course. My kids refuse standard blueberry pancakes these they'd be determined to refuse. They have their blueberries beside :)

  9. Oh! I have two punnets of blueberries in the fridge. I will give these a try! Thanks for the idea!

  10. Katie, I hope you don't mind. I was inspired by your pictures and made a similar (I guess recipe and featured it and linked to you on my blog today) Hope that's okay!
