The lemon zest and lemon juice in this recipe do a great job of brightening up the flavor, along with interacting with the baking powder to make the pancakes even fluffier and softer.

What You Need to Make Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

If you can, use small, fresh blueberries for these pancakes. If they’re not in season, then frozen ones will do. However, frozen blueberries contain more water and they’re more likely to burst during frying, so the pancakes will turn out delicious, but not as visually appealing.

You can make variations of these pancakes by replacing part of the flour with oat flour or whole grain flour. You can also try replacing the soy milk with almond, coconut, or regular milk.

Ingredients on a table

Ingredients:

  • Wheat flour
  • Sugar – white or brown. The type of sugar will affect both the color of the dough and the flavor of the pancakes.
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Lemon zest
  • Soy milk – Or other milk of your choice
  • Eggs – small or medium size
  • Unsalted butter (melted)
  • Lemon juice
  • Blueberries

How To Make Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Sift wheat flour into a deep bowl. Add baking powder, sugar, salt and lemon zest. Mix thoroughly with a whisk or spoon.

Mixing dry ingredients in a bowl

Mix eggs and melted butter, then add milk and lemon juice.

Mixing wet ingredients

Combine dry and wet ingredients in a bowl and mix until you get a homogeneous, thick dough. If the dough seems runny to you, add a little more flour.

Combining all ingredients

Add blueberries. Stir gently with a spoon so that the berries remain whole.

Adding blueberries

Heat a dry, non-stick frying pan. Spoon out small portions of the dough and fry over low heat for 2-3 minutes on each side.

As soon as bursting bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, it’s time to turn it over.
