Blueberry Lemon Pancakes

Do you ever go in spurts of eating the same thing day in and day out for a week straight?  I've been on a crazy bagel and lox kick this past week....onion and garlicky everything bagel with smooth mellow cream cheese, the perfectly ripe and juicy tomato, salty lox, spicy onions and just a bite of capers...kind of craving it all over again and I literally had this for dinner every night this week.  Figuring I should probably move on to other food at some point before I begin smelling like a big fat salmon myself, I decided I'd continue the breakfast for dinner theme.  

Pancakes for dinner is awesome.  Fantastic.  Delicious.   A little citrus and berry pancake adds a bit of spring during the middle of a little winter deep freeze.  

If you haven't tried pairing blueberry and lemon, well, you should.  Trust me.  

These pancakes are a little bit tart and a whole lot of bursting berry yum.  

Blueberry Lemon Pancakes

2 large eggs
2 tbsp sugar
2 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c milk
1/4 c melted butter
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup fresh blueberries

Beat egg until frothy; mix in remaining ingredients except blueberries, mixing just until smooth. 
Heat a griddle over medium heat or about 350 degrees on an electric griddle
Grease or butter lightly
Using a measuring cup, pour 1/3 cup of batter onto the hot griddle. Sprinkle with blueberries
Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around edges and bubbly on top
Turn and cook other side until golden brown.

My mom makes the best blueberry and lemon muffins with a cream cheese filling. I love the two flavors together and this looks way easy to make and yummy!

Oh and also love bagel and lox which I haven't had in six months. Guess I"m going to Einstein for breakfast this morning.

We make blueberry pancakes almost every weekend and I've nver thought about throwing in some lemon. What a great way to spice up the flavors while still getting our bluberry pancake fix. I bet this would be great with blueberry syrup too! Thanks for sharing!
