Lemon blueberry pancakes… two flavors that go great together. Perfect for a lazy weekend morning breakfast.
First of all I want to say that I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. My weekend was simple and relaxing, just the way that I like my three day weekends. Oh, there was a bit of excitement also, our daughter Krista got engaged. Yep, so there will be another wedding coming. So much fun!
On Sunday I decided that pancakes were a good idea for brunch. But not just any ordinary pancakes, oh no I made these lemon blueberry pancakes. I love the taste of lemon with summer fruit; like this combination of lemon and blueberry.
I am a big fan of pancakes any day of the week and once in a while I will even make them for dinner. But once in a while I like to tinker around with new flavors. I have had lemon pancakes before and loved them. I love making blueberry pancakes, they are one of my favorite pancakes. So these lemon blueberry pancakes were very flavorful, the flavor of the lemon came shining through as well as the blueberries. I think that I may have found a new favorite pancake.
When it came to the syrup, I didn’t serve them with any old pancake syrup, I made a strawberry syrup. I mean really, you can’t serve special pancakes with maple syrup, can you?!? Nope, the strawberry syrup was just the right touch and made these already tasty pancakes even tastier.
The strawberry syrup will be coming on the next blog post.
