These sweet fluffy lemon blueberry pancakes are my all-time favorite breakfast and late night snack. Made in under 10 minutes, these easy pancakes will please the entire family!
Original Pancakes and Blueberry Pancakes are my favorite breakfast to eat on cold winter mornings hands down! Lemon goes great with everything, in my opinion, so I had to add some to my pancakes. I didn’t add lemon juice however I did add plenty of fresh lemon zest and it turned out fantastic.
The secret to fluffy soft pancakes? I thought you’d never ask! A generous amount of baking powder will make your pancakes rise very nicely. Nothing better than a plate of fluffy pancakes smothered in maple syrup.
Why This Recipe Works:
- The batter isn’t runny therefore it won’t spread all over your skillet.
- No buttermilk required.
- The baking powder helps these nice and fluffy.
How To Make Lemon Blueberry Pancakes
These pancakes are super easy to make, this is all you have to do:
- Rinse your blueberries and pat them completely dry.
- In a large bowl, combine the milk, egg, unsalted melted butter, and sugar until well combined.
- Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Do not overmix.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- Heat some butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat

What do you do when blueberries are in season? You make pancakes!
Top Tip for Lemon Blueberry Pancake Success:
