Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

on March 1, 2012

I love pancakes, and so does Reese.  She will usually eat as many as I!  Lately I have been adding different pancakes to my repertoire. These were nice and fluffy, slightly lemony and filled with delicious fresh blueberries!

1/2 cup sour cream (or greek yogurt)

1/2 cup apple sauce
1 cup milk
3 large eggs, separated
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1½ cups cake flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¼ cup sugar


Combine the sour cream, apple sauce, milk, egg yolks, lemon zest and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk to combine.  Add in the cake flour, baking powder and salt and mix just until incorporated.  In another clean, dry mixing bowl, beat the egg whites on medium-low speed until foamy.  Increase the mixer speed to medium-high and continue to beat, adding the sugar gradually, until soft peaks form.

Fold one third of the egg white mixture into the other ingredients with a spatula until completely incorporated.  Add in the remaining egg whites and fold in gently until the mixture is smooth and light.

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.  Melt butter in skillet.  Ladle a scant ½ cup of batter onto the cooking surface for each pancake.  Sprinkle with fresh blueberries.  Allow to cook until bubbles begin to form on the top surface.  Use a large spatula to carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side until light golden and cooked through.  Repeat with the remaining batter.  If desired, keep finished pancakes warm in a 200˚ F oven until all the batter is cooked.  Serve warm with maple syrup and fresh fruit with yogurt and granola.

Hope you enjoy!
