  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt).
  2. Add lemon zest and stir in.
  3. If using homemade buttermilk, make it in a glass measuring cup.
  4. Add egg, oil and vanilla and whisk well.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and whisk just until incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
  6. Heat up your griddle or griddle pan over medium heat. I use a cast iron flat pan.
  7. Pour just about ¼ cup of batter into your pan, then add blueberries on top. I add 4 to 5 large blueberries per pancake.

  8. Flip when you notice bubbles on the surface of each pancake.
  9. Repeat until you use up the batter.
  10. Serve with more blueberries and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
