Over the past couple of years, I don’t get much opportunity to make pancakes anymore because my 10 year old daughter Olivia now considers that to be her area of expertise. Usually, I am not even allowed in the kitchen when she makes hers.

I was up before the kids this morning though and got to make my personal favorite pancakes. This is a very nice pancake recipe; very light but with a great texture that is no doubt helped by the addition of cornmeal to the batter.

The lemon and blueberry flavours combine very well in this recipe as well.

Thanks to Olivia and Noah, my two little photography assistants who helped get such a great shot at just the right moment. 😉

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Blueberry Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes - Some of the lightest, tastiest pancakes ever. Breakfast heaven.

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • ⅔ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest, , finely chopped
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups blueberries, , fresh or frozen

Instructions

  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cornmeal and sugar. Set aside.
  2. Mix together the milk and lemon juice and add to the dry ingredients along with the egg yolks, lemon zest, vanilla extract and melted butter.
  3. Stir together slightly with a wooden spoon, only enough to just form a batter. Lumps are a good thing in pancake batter.
  4. Beat 2 egg whites until soft peaks form and fold gently into the batter.
  5. Pour batter by ¼ cup measures into a preheated oiled griddle pan on medium heat or 375 degrees F on an electric griddle pan. Sprinkle each pancake with blueberries. 
  6. When bubbles start to break the surface of the pancake, it is time to flip them and cook for about another 2 minutes until golden brown

Made these today and they were amazing! The lemon and blueberry go so well together and the cornmeal gives them a little extra crispness. Light, fluffy, delicious!

These tasted great, only mine didn't turn out nearly as fluffy as yours showed in the picture?

I was looking for a different pancake recipe to serve the family today and, of course, turned to your site first. I feel in love with this recipe as soon as I saw it. The only problem was, I didn't have lemons nor blueberries. So I replaced them with lime and chocolate chips. SUPER yum!!! The cornmeal is a really nice addition. I can't wait to try the recipe with blueberries!!

I have been using this recipe for almost a year now and its perfect as is! My family always looks forward to the smell of lemony pancakes in the morning and the cornmeal gives it a really good crunch. Yummmm!
