Your favorite fluffy breakfast dish isn’t terribly high in calories -- as long as you limit yourself to just one or two pancakes. A small 4-inch pancake, weighing 38 grams, provides around 85 calories. No matter your preference -- plain, buttermilk or blueberry -- the calorie count stays about the same.
