  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • cup unbleached flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries thawed if frozen


  • In a large mixing bowl, add sugar and lemon zest. Use your fingers to massage the sugar and zest together until it resembles wet sand.
  • Next, measure and add the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Add in the egg, milk and vanilla. Whisk until just combined before adding in the (cooled) melted butter. Stir until butter is incorporated.
  • Preheat your griddle or skillet to 350° (or between medium and medium-high) and lightly spray with ghee oil spray or nonstick spray of choice.
  • Once hot, Use a 1/4 measuring cup (per pancake) and pour batter on to prepared griddle.
  • Immediately drop a few blueberries onto the pancakes. I like to dot the blueberries with some of the batter from the pancake, just so the berries don’t burn once you flip them.
  • Cook for 2 to 4 minutes on the first side or until golden underneath. Flip and continue cooking for a minute or two.
  • Transfer the pancakes to a rimmed baking sheet and keep warm in a 200° oven. Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries.
  • Serve topped with softened butter, extra blueberries and drizzle with real maple syrup.
