Pancakes are one of my favorite easy breakfast recipes. These Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce are light, refreshing and bursting with flavor!
A while back, I was visiting Baltimore, MD and had these pancakes for breakfast at the hotel restaurant. All day long, I couldn’t stop thinking about them. They were bursting with lemon flavor and topped with this incredible fresh blueberry sauce.
I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When I got home, I knew I had to make them.
I used my great-grandmother’s pancake recipe as the base. You can use whichever recipe you like best – or use a pancake mix. I won’t judge.
In my opinion, the blueberry sauce is the best part about this recipe! You can use it on just about anything, such as:
- Pancakes (of course!)
- Ice cream
- Angel food cake or pound cake
- French toast
- Short cakes
I could go on and on!
