Blueberry Pancakes with Lemon Glaze

blueberry pancakes with lemon glaze1

Blueberries are everywhere and I can’t get enough of them.  I am eating them fresh, baking with them, and freezing tons of them.  I don’t know about you, but I love blueberries and lemons together, and try to use that combo as much as possible.  Since blueberries are a favorite breakfast addition of mine, I decided to combine lemons and blueberries in pancakes.  I made pancakes packed with blueberries and topped them with a lemon glaze.  These pancakes are absolutely delicious and something a little different for breakfast.  I hope you make these part of your breakfast.

Next week, I am excited to share my daughter’s birthday cake.  I didn’t have time to finish the post this week, but can’t wait to share it!  Her theme was her own safari zoo. 😀  I hope everyone has a great weekend and are enjoying your summer!

Blueberry Pancakes with Lemon Glaze


  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (I use unbleached)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 Tbsp oil (I use extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup powered sugar
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • Clean, strain, and dry blueberries (if using frozen, let them thaw out for at least 15 minutes and then pat dry).
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, and baking soda together. Add the salt and sugar, and mix well with a whisk.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the milk, egg, and oil together.
  • Add the flour to the wet ingredients and mix together until just combined. Do not over mix. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Let the mix sit, while a griddle or pan is pre-heating. Oil pan or griddle if required. Give the mix a quick stir, and ladle the batter on the griddle. Flip once the top begins to bubble and the bottom is cooked. Remove from heat once the bottom is cooked.
  • Zest and juice 1 lemon and mix with 1 cup powdered sugar for the glaze. If you like your glaze thinner, add a little water and if you like it thicker, add a little powdered sugar.
  • Top the pancakes with the glaze and enjoy!
  • Notes

    Freeze leftovers, including the leftover glaze (use a freezer bag for the glaze). Simply defrost and heat up the pancakes. Clip the corner of the bag the glaze is in, and squeeze on the pancakes (defrost the glaze at room temperature for a several minutes). This will make for a quick and homemade breakfast during the week.

    I am excited to take my pancakes to Fiesta Friday #128  and Throwback Thursday #47!

      Blueberry pancakes are a favorite in my family but it might be tough to get them to give up their maple syrup. It’s worth a try though as lemon and blueberries do pair well together 🙂

        07/14/2016 at 8:12 am #

        I love maple syrup too. This is a little different and the glaze is sweet and refreshing 😀 I hope you enjoy it!

      I’ve been in heaven the past couple weeks with all the blueberries on sale in the grocery store! I’ve been having a big bowl of them for breakfast each day. I love the lemon glaze on the pancakes. Lemon + blueberries is a fantastic combination. Hope you have a lovely weekend as well Antonia and I look forward to seeing your daughter’s birthday cake!

      I don’t know anyone who can resist a stack of pancakes. Yours look delicious, love the lemon glaze which is perfect on the fluffy blueberry pancakes.

        I am with you Suzanne…I love pancakes! Thank you for the kind words 😀

      Have always loved blueberries and pancakes. As a child, I remember going to a restaurant nearly every month in NY called Aunt Jemima’s Restaurant. Today, I don’t eat pancakes very much based on my lifestyle, but including them occasionally (especially after a good workout) satisfies the delicious flavor while quickly replenishing glycogen (available energy) to the muscles of the body.
      Thanks for the memories!

        07/14/2016 at 1:33 pm #

        You’re welcome Dr. Jonathan! You have to enjoy them in moderation for sure! At least they are eaten early enough in the day, to burn them off 😀

    8. 07/14/2016 at 11:20 am #

      That looks so sweet and yummy, Antonia. My diet would be shot! Lol 🙂 Time to eat my two hard-boiled eggs.

        07/14/2016 at 1:37 pm #

        Thank you so much Diana! I understand that…enjoy your eggs 😀

      These pancakes sound so yummy! I also love the blueberry-lemon combination. I have never tried blueberry pancakes with lemon glaze, but after seeing this recipe, I don’t know why not–sounds wonderful. Thank you for the great idea!

        07/17/2016 at 11:01 am #

        Thank you so much Jenny! It is a wonderfully sweet and refreshing treat 😀 I hope you hare having a nice weekend!

      I’ve never tried American style pancakes (English ones are more like French crepes) but these look very tasty. I’ve always loved the idea of pancakes for breakfast – it seems very indulgent compared to my usual porridge or toast!

        07/20/2016 at 10:00 pm #

        They are a great treat 😀 Thank you Louise! I hope you are having a fantastic week!

      I love everything about these pancakes, Antonia! lemon and blueberries is a favorite combination of mine. Have to make these soon with all the yummy fresh blueberries around!
      happy Birthday to your daughter. cannot wait to see her safari cake.

        07/20/2016 at 10:03 pm #

        Thank you so much Sandhya! I hope you enjoy them 😀 Thank you so much, she is growing up so fast. Decorating her cake was definitely a rewarding challenge! Have a wonderful rest of your week 😀

      I do love blueberry and lemon as well. It’s refreshing and summery, the perfect choice for a pancake. A bit of sugar glaze makes anything, from a cake to even pancakes, suddenly special and perfect for an occasion!
      I’m excited to see your daughter’s birthday cake Antonia! I want a safari zoo cake for my birthday now too 🙂

        07/20/2016 at 10:08 pm #

        Thank you! I agree, sugar glaze can make anything special. Thank you, I can’t wait to share it. It was a fun and challenging experience 😀 Haha, it’s a great theme 😉 Have a great rest of your week!

      I am also a blueberry lover but the are still very expensive over here in Belgium. I will try & make them soon! They look super yummy too! 🙂 By the way, i made your blueberry biscuits a few days ago & they turned out amazing! xxx

        07/21/2016 at 10:49 am #

        I’m sorry, I wish I could send you some Sophie. I am so glad you liked the biscuits. It always makes me so happy to hear when someone has tried one of my recipes. Thank you for letting me know 😀 I hope you enjoy the pancakes!

    18. 07/22/2016 at 3:48 am #

      So yummm! Looks completely scrumptious..This is somewhat diverse and the coating is sweet and invigorating 😀 I trust you appreciate it!

        07/22/2016 at 3:03 pm #

        Thank you so much! Yes, it is a delicious treat 😀 Have a great weekend!

      Your pancakes look rather special, and quite different to how we have as pancakes in the UK (more like French crepes, only bigger and a little thicker). I’d love to try American pancakes sometime, all stacked up as they are. So many different uses for blueberries! They aren’t a traditional fruit grown here, although they have become more popular in recent years. We’ve tended to have the black and red currants here in the past, and still do. But I love all your recipes with blueberries in them, so time to have a go! 🙂

        07/23/2016 at 2:07 pm #

        Thank you Millie 😀 That’s interesting, I will have to try the UK version…I love crepes! I love currants, but we don’t have much selection here. I agree, blueberries are really versatile. Thank you and I hope you get a chance to try them.

        • 07/23/2016 at 2:17 pm #

          I will definitely be having a go. We all love pancakes!

          07/23/2016 at 2:29 pm #

          That’s awesome, I hope you enjoy them 😀

    20. 07/23/2016 at 2:30 pm #

      I meant to say, this looks delicious. I need to delete my previous comment lol. iPhone typos. 🙂

        07/23/2016 at 3:06 pm #

        Haha, I do that all the time 😀 I deleted it. Thank you Krystina!

          Thank you! I didn’t get a chance to delete it from my laptop, so I appreciate it.
