Blueberry Orange Pancakes

Start you day with a stack of blueberry orange pancakes. It’s a flavor explosion – orange zest and fresh blueberries for the win.

There are a trillion food holidays (not exaggerating, I swear,) but my new favorite one just happens to be on January 28th, which is today. I’m talking about National Blueberry Pancake Day folks!

Time to throw a party and at that party you should serve some delicious pancakes.  

These delicious pancakes are fluffy and light – these are not like your typical boxed mix pancakes. Besides the obvious sky-high height of these beauties, you will find blueberries that literally burst when you bite into them. I busted out my lobster bib because between the bursting berries and my frantic eating (no pancakes for you!), I was making quite a mess.

Then hidden behind the height of the pancakes and the blueberry explosion is the subtle citrus of the orange zest. So good.

Mr. B. has asked me to make these every Sunday or Monday, please and thank you.

This recipe would have been the perfect lead into me creating some videos but I am a chicken. So instead of me showing you how to make pancakes (hey, if you know how don’t make fun of those who are still learning) with my first video, I’m going to direct you to a “How to Make Pancakes” video on youtube.

I highly recommend butter over oil on your griddle/pan because I like the way it tastes better. But it is also bad for you…..  everything in moderation right? If I end up making these pancakes for Mr. B. every week, we’ll be using oil.

Serve them up with some additional fresh blueberries and a healthy dose of maple syrup (the real stuff of course.) And don’t forget your lobster bib.

I love pancakes, and especially blueberry pancakes. I usually add some candied lemon peel to mine, but I love this idea of adding orange zest instead!

Jenny, Butter is better in breakfast. Heck, dinner too now that I think on it. I love the idea of these flavors together--I bet they'd be even better using local blueberries when they are in season. I can wait ;) since it seems pretty silly to have a National Day when the produce isn't even abundant! That'd be like having National Zucchini Pancake Day in February! I am so digressing here--need my tea. I hope you go for a video soon, you'd be great! Thanks!
