Blueberries are in season and that means blueberry recipes are coming out the gum stump (my Dad used to say that all the time! What is a gum stump anyway? lol) So a blueberry recipe it is! I’ve made blueberry dessert recipes, including a blueberry galette and I’ve tossed together a Red, White & Blue Salad and Red White and Blue Parfaits for patriotic holiday picnics, so now I think it’s time for blueberries in a breakfast recipe. Yummy lemon blueberry pancakes coming right up.

There’s a story behind these Lemon Blueberry Pancakes too. While visiting my sister in Michigan last year she asked if I would like some of her favorite blueberry pancakes fro breakfast. Of course, seeing the biggest, juiciest Michigan blueberries in her fridge, I just had to say yes! She told me that the original recipe was one she found in an old Southern Living cookbook and that her family simply loves it when she whips them up. And now I can agree! These pancakes were some of the lightest, most flavorful pancakes I’ve ever had. And that means I just had to share the recipe with y’all!

Now, if you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I don’t just make a recipe following the directions. That would be too easy, right? I always have to tweak it and add my own flavor to it and make it my own. So what did I do? I added one of my favorite summertime flavors to the mix – lemon! Since it worked so well for my Lemon Blueberry Doughnuts I thought why not add it to these pancakes.

How did they come out? They were just as over-the-top delicious as the original! Yay! And except for the beating of the egg white, which gives them their fluffiness, they are simple to make.
