I ran out of mixed fruit the other day but still had some pancake mix, so I decided to try some other fruit in the mixture. I had apples and oranges so I thought apples seemed like the better choice.
I sliced the apples into small chunks and mixed and made the pancake.
These actually turned out pretty good. I’m not sure I got the apples chopped up enough so the cakes came apart really easily when you tried to pick them up with a fork, but they were still easy to eat. If you like apples, I guarantee you’ll like this mix.

Blueberry Pancakes aren’t the only type of pancakes you can mix with fruit. I bought some of those frozen mixed fruit packages and defrosted a handful and put them in my pancakes.
Yeah, that looks kinda gross but it’s just defrosted mixed fruit chopped up a bit. Just dump that mixture into your pancake mix and stir it up (it may turn it colors). Cook the same way you would a normal pancake.
Pancakes are delicious but I wouldn’t really recommend eating them all the time because they are unhealthy (fried dough and syrup is unhealthy? i know that’s hard to believe.). At least, putting some fruit in it gives you an excuse to eat this very cheap and delicious breakfast food.

Blueberry Pancakes are really easy to make. I made them yesterday for lunch and they were awesome. Here’s how you do it…..
- store brand pancake mix (the “just add water” kind)
- 1 small pack of blueberrys
- jimmy dean sausage
You’ll also need
- oil (i use canola or vegetable)
Mix your pancake mix in a big bowl – they usually tell you how much on the back of the box. However, their definition of 5 pancakes and mine are a little different. For instance, this box said 5-7 pancakes with 1 cup of mix; one cup of mix made 2 pancakes for me.
Pour an ample number of blueberrys into the mix. DO NOT MIX ANY MORE THAN NECESSARY; pancakes don’t turn out well if you mix the mixture too much.
Start your sausage in another pan if you chose to add sausage.
Put oil into the pan you’re going to be cooking in, add a layer of oil to the bottom of the pan. Allow the pan to heat on the stove until it’s warm (test by holding your hand over the pan).
Pour enough pancake mix into the pan to where you don’t overfill your pan and give yourself room to get the spatula under the pancake – thin is good. Flip when you start to see bubble forming on the uncooked side. Don’t burn but you also want to make sure the middle of the pancake gets done.
Serve with syrup. So easy to do and easy to impress someone if you happen to be making breakfast for someone else.
