  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 4 tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup Milk 2% or whole
  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1/4 cup Butter Melted but not very hot
  • 2 tsp Lemon zest
  • 1 tsp Lemon extract
  • 1.5 cups Blueberries Preferably fresh, Frozen can be used but have to be thawed


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar.
  • Add buttermilk, milk and eggs, butter, lemon zest, lemon extract and mix until just combined. The batter will be very thick and chunky. Don't over-mix!
  • Keep aside and let the batter sit at room temperature for 3-4 minutes. This makes the pancakes very fluffy.
  • Heat a griddle or a nonstick pan over medium heat and spray some oil. 
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter on the hot pan.
  • Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to spread out the bitter slightly into a round shape.
  • Sprinkle some blueberries on top of each pancake.
    Note: Instead of sprinkling blueberries on top, you can also stir them into the batter. Make sure to fold them in gently so that they don't pop and discolor the batter.
  • When the top and sides become bubbly, flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Do not flip again!
  • Serve warm with maple syrup or blueberry pie filling. Enjoy!

  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
