How to make blueberry buttermilk pancake casserole

Print this recipe
Whether you call it a casserole, a crumble or a cake, the recipe below is delicious – and ever so pretty when you pull it out of the oven. Juicy blueberries sit atop a fluffy and tender cake that resembles buttermilk pancakes. As those blueberries cook, they release some of their juices so they trickle down into the cake, which is what makes it looks so pretty. And the sweet crumble topping gives the entire thing a little bit of texture and extra sweetness.
This cake is perfect for breakfast when it's fresh out of the oven. It's warm and comforting and with a little bit of something that everyone will love. Because it's so scrumptious and pretty, it could do double duty as a centerpiece the next time you host a brunch. Or serve it as dessert with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Whatever you choose, with a full casserole dish of this beauty, you'll have plenty on hand when people come back for seconds.
