Ready Time

1 hrs 15 mins


6 servings


  • For the pancakes:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • For the blueberry syrup:
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, milk, lemon juice, and melted butter until well combined.

Add the grated lemon zest and whisk until smooth. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and whisk until just combined.

Do not overmix.

Fold in the poppy seeds. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat.

Brush with a small amount of butter or cooking spray.

Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface and the edges start to dry.

Flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.

While the pancakes are cooking, prepare the blueberry syrup. In a medium saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, water, and lemon juice.

Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the syrup has thickened.

Serve the pancakes warm with the blueberry syrup spooned over the top.


Make sure to use fresh lemons for the juiciest flavor and zest.

Don’t overmix the batter, as it can result in tough pancakes.

If using frozen blueberries, thaw them first and pat dry with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.

For an extra crispy pancake, don’t overcrowd the pan and cook in batches if necessary.

The blueberry syrup can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months.

Reheat gently over low heat before serving.

To ensure the pancakes stay warm, place them in a 200°F oven while cooking the remaining batter.

These pancakes freeze beautifully, simply toast or microwave to reheat.
