15 Blueberry Recipes

If you haven’t noticed by now, Ali and I are both kind of bonkers for blueberries. We’re finding ways to sneak them into just about everything we make, from salads and salsas, to smoothies and crisps. We just can’t get enough!
I’m trekking up to Maine next week for our annual summer trip, and am honestly more excited about Maine blueberries than I am about Maine lobstah. If you’re not familiar with Maine blueberries, they’re just more petite. And the smaller the berry, the sweeter the berry. I first fell in love with them at an adorable little restaurant in Bar Harbor, called Cafe This Way. They have a sweeping brunch menu that would render you decision-less, if you didn’t know that their blueberry pancakes are the real prince charming of the lot. It’s quite unfair really, the advantage they have over everything else on the menu, but they’re simply too darn good to to even consider ordering anything else. The modest circumference of the pancakes is the size of a large dinner plate. And they arrive at your table, grand and fluffy, with crispy, buttery edges, studded with as many tiny blueberries as possible. (See why they’re so popular?!)
This time, sadly, I won’t get to visit Bar Harbor, we’ll be in Portland. But I have a hunch that there will be no shortage of blueberry eating, and that when I return, I will still be adding those pretty indigo berries to my oatmeal, muffins, salads, cocktails and pies. Can’t wait.

Thanks, Simone! We’re so glad you stopped by — hope you enjoy the blueberry recipes! : )
Great looking recipes, although it will be awhile before we have blueberries in New England, they usually don’t ripen until late July/August
Thanks, Jocelyn! Oh man, now that you mention it, I’m remembering we do usually go in July! Ah well, maybe we’ll get lucky anyway…
If not, I’m still looking forward to Maine’s produce. I’m always in love, every time I’m up there in the summertime (what we have down south usually pales in comparison.)
Love all the recipes as I, too am a blueberry freak! In East Texas we pick blueberries every 4th of July weekend. I just mentioned last weekend that we need to go more than once this year as last year during the 4th weekend they were all picked out :(
Thank you, Ellen! We hope you get some good blueberry picking in next month!
Blueberries make everything better!

We agree! : )
I LOVE Maine! …and blueberries. I was in Portland for a wedding last fall and we ate THE most amazing donuts at Holy Donut. To die. If you haven’t had them yet I highly recommend!! Cheers!
Yes, The Holy Donut is awesome! So yummy, and such fun flavors, too! : D
I made the blueberry cake for work and everyone raved about it. They wanted the recipe, but I am having trouble printing it. I gues I will have to write it out.
We’re so glad to hear the blueberry cake was a hit Patricia! We’re sorry you’re having difficulty getting this to print — we’re not sure why, but we are looking into it!
