Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

To celebrate Elisa's homecoming after spending the week at girls' camp, I made blueberry pancakes for brunch. They weren't anything super-special, but they were pretty good. I found the recipe at, which used to be
Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
2 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 lg. eggs (at room temperature)
2 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. unsalted buttermelted (cooled)
1 c. blueberries (fresh or frozen)

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt

After melted butter has cooled down, beat the eggs with the buttermilk in a separate bowl then whisk in the melted butter. Using a wooden spoon or a spatula, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine just until you have a lumpy batter; do NOT overmix.

Over medium-high heat, heat some butter in a large skillet. For each pancake, use a generous 1/4 cup of batter; after spooning batter into skillet, sprinkle top of each pancake with blueberries and press them in slightly.
I bought a big package of blueberries and still have a lot leftover. Anyone have a good recipe that uses fresh blueberries?
