Blueberry and Lemon

07/03/13 11:10 PM


If you are hungry and haven’t had a good meal in a few hours…

You don’t want to read this blog!

You have been warned!

Tonight I made a new recipe. It’s not anything out of this world or dramatic in appearance.

They just came out so good that I had to share them! 

They are….


Blueberry and Lemon Pancakes!


1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour

1/4 Salt

1 tablespoon heaping Baking Powder

1/3 cups Sugar

1 1/2 cups Milk

1 Lemon (juice and zest)

1 large Egg

1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla

2 tablespoons melted Butter

1 pint of Blueberries


Heat your griddle or skillet to medium.

In a large bowl, mix your dry ingredients (not blueberries). In a separate bowl, mix your wet ingredients (not blueberries). After mixing, add your wet ingredients to you dry ingredients. Mix until smooth, but may have a few limps in it. You want it thick as a normal pancake batter. If it looks too thin, add a little more flour. If it looks to thick, add a little milk. Once you have the batter right, add blueberries and gently stir them. Don’t over mix or you will break open your blueberries.


Grease you griddle or skillet with butter or cooking spray. Using a ladle, pour onto you cooking surface. Remember to leave enough space for them to spread out.


You will know when to flip them when you see small bubbles forming around the edges. You can peak too to see if they are golden brown. Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side.

Serve warm with Butter and Maple Syrup.

Next time I make these, I am going to use a Blueberry and Strawberry Compote instead of syrup. But you can see from the pictures… butter and syrup worked nicely too!

    Looks awesome…really!!!
    Love your food pics too. Food, IMHO, can look sooo beautiful or like a work of art, rather the most simple or small to the big/feast or elaborate Michelin Star.
    I’m wanting to eat those pancakes right thru the screen, lol
    BTW, I do try out different toppings (as in fruit,’freshly” homemade syrups like blueberry…after collecting them in the woods near cabin (Lake Huron ….however, that said – a good pure MAPLE syrup and (real of course) BUTTER…can NOT go wrong!

  17. Thank you! I love to show the different views of the food. And you are right, it is like a piece of art!

  18. Beth Says:

    If I had some blueberries, I would be making this right now!

  20. John Says:

    Awesomely delishusss!!!!

  21. Yes, I have to agree! Thank you!

  22. Nice post! I have really enjoyed the article and thanks for such informative and interesting post. Great job, Keep it up.

  23. Thank you! It is fun to show the different “angles” of food. Makes you kind of hungry. 😉

  24. Best thing is you can use the basic recipe and mix up the fruit. (I use apple chunks instead of blueberries and lemon, and serve with apple cinnamon syrup)

  25. Oh apples would be great! Now we have to make them again next week! Thank you!

  26. Mm those pancakes look so plump and delicious! Thanks for stopping by my blog! =)

    You warned me but it didn’t stop me. Now I want pancakes for lunch. It was the dripping syrup that did me in! Well played my friend, well played!

  32. Haha… I knew I would get someone with that drip! 😉 Hope you found pancakes!

  33. Lemon and blueberries. Yum. Oh, the butter!

    Good thing I just ate my lunch!! LOL I love pancakes and these look great. Will have to try it for the family one Sat morning.

  40. Thank you! I am glad you liked them! Hope you will enjoy them soon!

  41. jwcwong Says:

    MYGOD.. I keep using the Aunt Jemima pancake mix and never achieved the fluffiness and thickness! what went wrong?!

  42. What went wrong? … You stared with a box. No serious, these are just as easy as any box mix. The difference is the baking powder in the recipe. Give these a try and you will see yours look just as thick and fluffy. Promise!

  43. David Says:

    Mmmm … pancakes. 🙂

  44. Yum! Thank you!

  45. Ancientfoods Says:

    Looks good, I’ll have to try them.

  46. Please do! They are good! Thank you!

  47. edgar62 Says:

    Lovely, but for this place – expensive – ALL berries are expensive here in South Australia. However, that said, I will still give them a go.

  48. You know you can use any fruit you have on hand. It doesn’t have to be berries. It’s a good basic recipe. Thank you!

  49. edgar62 Says:

    That very true but the berries look sooooo good :o)

  50. They are!

  51. Liz Says:

  53. Beautiful. And, I love your griddle. Dianne

  54. Thank you Dianne! When we get to Belle Grove, I hope to have one that I can use on the gas stove.

  55. These pancakes look phenomenal! So thick and fluffy, like how a perfect pancake should be. And the photos with the syrup and melted butter dripping down the sides are making my stomach growl!

  56. Thank you! I love those shots too!

  57. wahan31 Says:
