Lemon Blueberry Pancake Recipe

Last Updated on

Breakfast for dinner is always a very popular meal in my house and this lemon blueberry pancake recipe was a huge hit. Making pancakes from scratch is incredibly easy. Don’t get me wrong…I resort to prepackaged baking mix every once in a while but I much prefer to make them without it. This homemade pancake recipe is loaded with fresh ingredients.  The combination of lemon and blueberries is delicious and takes only a few minutes to put together.

Why Make Homemade Pancakes?

So, why should you make homemade pancakes rather than use a mix?  Making pancakes from scratch means YOU control the ingredients! A lot of the ingredients I used in this pancake recipe were organic, which is not always an option when you start from a prepackaged baking mix.

Pancake Ingredients You Need

Organic milk, eggs from the farm, organic Greek yogurt and organic coconut palm sugar were all used in this lemon blueberry pancake recipe.  That helps  reduce my carbon footprint just a little bit.

I highly recommend you use real butter for frying the pancakes. There is just no comparison when you use a non stick spray from a can! Next time you are looking for an easy pancake recipe I suggest you give this one a try.

Not only were they delicious but I think they came out very pretty as well! Top with a sprinkle of powdered sugar from a powdered sugar sifter for a fancy, upscale look

Can You Freeze Pancakes

Freezing pancakes allows you to make a ton of homemade pancakes ahead of time.  This will save you time and money in the long run.  Freezing pancakes isn’t hard.  Just place a sheet of wax paper between each lemon blueberry pancake and stack together.

Wrap the stack of pancakes tightly in aluminum foil or place inside a heavy-duty freezer bag and freeze. Use the frozen pancakes within 1 to 2 months for best quality. 

How do you reheat frozen pancakes?  Place your frozen pancakes on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave uncovered on high for about 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, or until heated through.

I prefer using a conventional oven to reheat frozen pancakes.  Just place frozen pancakes in a single layer on a cookie sheet and cover with foil. Then, bake in a 375°F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until hot.
