I woke up this morning craving pancakes. I can’t tell you why, because anyone who knows me knows I’m an egg girl. But pancakes for breakfast were going to happen today and you can thank me later for this pancake recipe because it far exceeded my expectations and cravings! If you have pancake mix on hand, this recipe won’t take you longer 10 minutes before you have a hot stack of good mornin’ ‘cakes.
Blueberry, Lemon & Coconut Pancakes
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes
Makes ~8 Pancakes
1 cup pancake mix (I used Nature’s Path)
2/3 cup cold water
1 TBS vegetable oil
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup coconut
Zest of one lemon
In a medium size bowl, stir pancake mix, water and oil until most lumps are gone. Don’t over mix, if there are still a few lumps, that’s ok. Add blueberries, coconut and lemon zest and stir to mix evenly.
Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium-high heat and lightly brush with butter or vegetable oil. Pour batter to desired size and let pancakes sit approximately 15-30 seconds until you see air bubbles coming through the batter or when you lift with a spatula the underside is light brown. Flip and cook an additional 15-30 seconds until lightly brown. Remove. Repeat. Eat. It’s that easy! These pancakes have so many good flavors, I choose to eat mine with just a bit of butter spread on top.
Note: The water, oil and pancake mix proportions were according to the Nature’s Path package instructions and make thicker, fluffy pancakes. Feel free to adjust per your brand’s instructions, but opt for the thicker pancakes so they hold up to the whole blueberries.
