What should the consistency of the batter be like when making these small-batch pancakes?

The best tool for consistent pancakes is a spring-loaded cookie scoop. Look for a scoop with 1/4 cup capacity for this recipe.

<b>Editor’s Note:</b> For dollar-size pancakes, drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto a griddle.
To substitute for each cup of buttermilk, use 1 Tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand 5 min. Or, use 1 cup plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk.
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
