Summer is coming and that means I will start seeing more and more blueberries at the market.  They are one of my very favorite fruits from breakfast to dessert.  I have always love blueberry pancakes, my dad used to make them all the time for us growing up. 

I’ve since found a way to enjoy these pancakes with my family and to share with yours!

Since many pancake recipes are very similar, I start with the “Simply Perfect Pancakes” base found at King Arthurs Flour website. I simply add a bit of lemon zest and blueberries as I’m cooking them on the griddle.

For a fun topping, try blending fresh blueberries with vanilla yogurt for a creamy twist!

  5. To make topping, blend vanilla yogurt and blueberries in a blender until smooth. Add a touch of sugar if you like yours a bit sweeter!


  • *Use 1 cup milk if you’re baking under hot, humid conditions, or if you’re going to let the batter rest longer than 15 minutes. Use up to 1 1/4 cups milk in cold, dry conditions.
  • Do not add blueberries into batter in bowl. The juice will bleed turning your batter purple and changing the consistency. Add blueberries to each pancake while cooking for best results.
