These are a nice change from your everyday pancakes. The lemon, blueberry, buttermilk flavors go nicely with the brown sugar, but plain sugar is fine. Also, I thought that the pecans are a nice touch, but any nut or no nuts are fine. Serve the pancakes with your favorite syrup. If you can't serve the pancakes right of the stove, preheat the oven to 200°F and stack finished ones in some foil.

I saw that IHOP has a lemon blueberry pancake which sounds good, but I could only imagine tastes artificial. Better to make myself. I also cheated, but used Heart Healthy Bisquick mix. Topped with a thinned blueberry peach butter from Stonewall Kitchen. Thinned down jams are a great and easy sauce or topping for many things (ice cream!) Fantastic. Another pancake version is 1 cup blueberries, almond extract (1/2 tsp.) and cinnamon in the batter. The options are endless- try canned pumpkin and walnuts for a lovely fall pancake. Yummy!
These pancakes were pretty good. They tasted amazing- my only complaint is the texture; they were not as light and fluffy as pancakes normally are.
These are delicious pancakes! I cheated a little and used Jiffy baking mix instead of the flour, baking powder and salt. I also used regular sugar. I didn't make it with the pecans. I can't wait to eat them again. :)
