Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

These lemon scented blueberry pancakes are so fluffy and light. They highlight what is best about the warmer months – fresh berries and lots of bright citrus. You can easily use raspberries or strawberries in place of the blueberries, but blueberries are my favorite in a pancake. I think that they hold up better to heat than delicate red berries.

The secret ingredient for these delectable pancakes is sour cream. It adds an extra layer of tang and a little lift to make them even fluffier.

I like to top mine with some uncooked blueberries, pure maple syrup, and extra butter.

Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

 In another bowl, whisk together sour cream, milk, lemon zest, lemon juice, melted butter, egg, and vanilla.

Gently fold in blueberries. (I like to reserve some uncooked ones for serving.)

Now it’s time to heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt a tablespoon of butter and pour about ¼ cup of batter onto hot griddle pan.

Cook until the pancake begins to bubble around the edges. Carefully flip, and cook the other side until cooked through.

 Serve with fresh blueberries, maple syrup, and and extra butter. Enjoy!
