    Blueberry Lemon Pancakes

    These sweet and slightly tangy blueberry lemon pancakes will become a fast favorite in your house! Pancakes are such an easy breakfast staple. Plain ones only take a few ingredients … probably items you already have in your fridge and pantry. Then you can easily mix things up with fun add-ins based upon in-season fruit, produce deals from the farmers’ market or grocery store, and even spices from your cupboard. Some of our favorites pancakes over the years include peach cobbler pancakes, cinnamon sugar pancakes and, of course, traditional homemade blueberry pancakes. But, with regards to a traditional favorite, I’ve found that sometimes even the slightest of additions can take that classic flavor…

    Homemade Blueberry Pancakes

    Homemade blueberry pancakes are super easy to make on weekends and perfect to reheat during the week for easy breakfasts. Pancakes are one of those recipes that once you make them from scratch, it seems ridiculous to have ever used a box mix, or even store-bought in the frozen foods aisle! My basic recipe for homemade pancakes includes ingredients that even the most basically stocked fridge and pantry usually have: flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, oil, eggs and milk. In my book, simple is delicious. But, there are still times when you want to liven things up a bit, give a little pizzazz or just use up some fruit or…

    Peach Cobbler Pancakes

    Peach cobbler pancakes are a great excuse to combine breakfast and dessert into a yummy plate of awesome! Sometimes you’re forced to get creative when you find the pantry doesn’t offer up all the ingredients to make something you’re craving. One morning the kids wanted pancakes — easy enough, right? Normally, yes. I make pancakes all the time, for breakfast and dinner. However, on that particular day, we were missing a critical component: syrup. What to do, what to do… Time to get food crafty, that’s what. Fruit syrups aren’t difficult to make. All it takes is a stone fruit or berries, water, and either sugar or a scoop of preserves,…

    Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes

    We’re intense pancake eaters over here. I make them nearly every weekend, sometimes with enough leftover to reheat for busy weekday mornings. Makes for an easy alternative to cereal or granola bars before school. These cinnamon sugar pancakes turn out tasting like light and fluffy cinnamon toast disks of breakfast-y goodness!  I have my go-to traditional pancakes made with milk, and sometimes with fun additions like blueberries, lemon and blueberries, lemon ricotta, and even peach cobbler pancakes. Always game for trying something new, I happened to have cashew milk on hand recently and wondered how my pancakes would turn out with this as a dairy-free substitute. Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes I…

    Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

    Lemon ricotta pancakes are a delightfully tart and citrusy version of a breakfast classic. I’m a firm believer that you can’t have too many pancake recipes. They’re just so … easy and yummy and practical. It’s like the trifecta of breakfast food qualities! This weekend I’m trying to make good use of a bag of organic lemons that I bought a couple weeks ago and have had stored in the crisper drawer of my fridge ever since. I’ve found most citrus fruits last for-practically-ever when they’re in there, which is good for me when you find a forgotten bag. Pancakes are a favorite. I’ve said time and time again how much I…

    Fluffy Homemade Pancakes

    These homemade pancakes are SO light and fluffy because of an extra ingredient: whole milk Greek yogurt! I don’t need to go on and on about how much we love pancakes in our house, because you can easily read about that in the other pancake recipes I have (scroll down to the recipe card to find links). Leftover pancakes can be so practical during the work-week. My kids both love them reheated in the microwave, and it’s arguably quicker than pulling together a bowl of cereal. This batch of fluffy homemade pancakes were made with my basic recipe using flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, egg and oil, except I…

    Easy Blueberry Pancakes

    Every weekend I make pancakes. EVERY WEEKEND. I just can’t help myself. They’re super easy to pull together, and the flavor combos are endless. Got leftover super-ripe berries, or bananas that are on the edge of being too brown? Pancakes are your best friend. Plus, the leftovers make for a quick and delicious breakfast during the work-week. Why eat a granola bar when you can have steamy, buttery pancakes in less than a minute? So, a pint of blueberries found its way into my shopping cart last week…. Easy Blueberry Pancakes Stir the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl – don’t worry about sifting them; there’s no need! I…

    Vanilla Very Berry Pancakes

    These vanilla very berry pancakes are a simple twist on my standard recipe and loaded with flavor! When we lived in Maryland, we were lucky to spend a few years on my parents’ homestead with tons of gardens and a variety of berry bushes. It’s around Father’s Day when things really start going crazy in the berry department there, and my mother would often send us home with a big container of fresh raspberries and blackberries. Most of them get devoured by the handful, like candy. Those that remain are usually teetering on the edge of getting too ripe, the kind of ripe that’ll flirt with moldiness in the next…
