FATHER’S DAY BREAKFAST: LEMON SOUR CREAM PANCAKES WITH BLUEBERRY COMPOTE

FATHER’S DAY BREAKFAST: LEMON SOUR CREAM PANCAKES WITH BLUEBERRY COMPOTE Posted on June 5, 201642 Comments

Father’s Day breakfast at our house must include some sort of pancakes. My husband is a pancake connoisseur. However, this year we have a second dad to coming to breakfast. My son, Nathaniel, (Taylor’s husband) is a daddy-to-be. Lucky for me he is a pancake man too. So, Taylor and I put our heads together to invent a brand new pancake recipe for our special dads.

We had our work cut out for us. Over my many mom years I have created dozens of pancake flavors. After many we put our heads together, we came up with a perfect lemony blueberry combination. ย I love sour cream pancakes, and we thought combining the tart lemon flavor to these cakes would be perfect. Now our cakes needed a sweet fruity topping. What works better with lemon than blueberry? Nothing. It is a perfect flavor pairing. A sweet blueberry compote would be delicious over our lemon pancakes. Top that off with a sweet and creamy sour cream drizzle and you have an amazing Father’s Day breakfast.

Father's Day Breakfast: Sour Cream Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry Compote

LEMON SOUR CREAM PANCAKES

Ingredients

3 cups baking mix (I use Krusteze Belgium Waffle mix)

3 eggs

1 cup half and half

1 cup sour cream

2 TB of finely chopped lemon zest

1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 TB vegetable oil

1/4 cup sugar

Instructions

Sift baking mix into a large mixing bowl. Combine all other ingredients in bowl and mix until combined. The batter needs to be on the thin side, if it is a little too thick add a little more half and half. I had to mix in an 1/8 of a cup of half and half to my batter today. Heat your grill to 300 degrees and coat with butter. Using a ladle, spoon out 4 pancakes on grill. When batter start to form bubble flip cake (about 4 or 5 minutes). Cook other side 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Finish with a pat of butter.
