Pioneer Woman's Lemon Blueberry Pancakes ~ Foodie Friday

Welcome friends to Natasha in Oz, my bloggy home in my little corner of the world Down Under. I hope you have had a wonderful week and are ready for the weekend! I also hope you are ready to try a delicious version of pancakes that our family just adores: The Pioneer Woman's Lemon Blueberry Pancakes!

The Pioneer Woman's Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

I am looking forward to Mother's Day this weekend so I can be spoilt and have my family wait on me all day...Well in my dreams that would be happening but this Sunday my husband has a meeting at our church in the morning, my daughter has a United Nations conference all day and my whole family is coming to our place for lunch! I really don't mind though as I actually think I'm treated like a Queen every day of the week by my sweet husband!

I will however be catching up with a few episodes of The Pioneer Woman that I have recorded over the last few weeks on Saturday.  I have been following Ree Drummond's blog for years now so I know her story and have tried many of her recipes but her TV show has only just come to Australia in the last couple of months so I have a lot of catching up to do!

Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

For my Aussie friends who haven't watched her show or read her book The Pioneer Woman is well known for her down home, country-style comfort food. She lives on a cattle ranch in Oklaholma and blogs about her life on the ranch with some great photos to boot!



She also shares good old fashioned recipes and has written two cookbooks. Her first cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl, was published in October 2009. Her second cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier, was published in March 2012.

         





Since it's Mother's Day this weekend I thought I'd share this video from Ree Drummond about what Mother's Day means to her.




So, why am I telling you all of this? Well I recently tried her recipe for Lemon Blueberry pancakes after seeing them on her show and I just loved them! It comes from Food From My Frontier and I'm sure you would agree that anything that combines blueberry and lemon is a winner!

These pancakes were fluffy, fruit-filled, lemony, light and oh so good! My family were literally "oh my gosh"ing and swooning over each bite.

Ree Drummond's Lemon Blueberry Pancakes ~ Recipe via The Pioneer Woman

Ingredients

1-1/2 cup Plain Flour (PW uses Cake flour)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1-1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
1 whole lemon (more If Needed)
1 whole large organic and free range egg
1-1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Zest from 1 lemon
1 cup blueberries
Extra butter for serving
Maple Syrup

Note: The original recipe calls for 1 Tablespoon (additional) Flour but  I am not quite sure why this is necessary. The batter is fine without it!

Method

Heat heavy skillet over medium low heat. Try to keep the pan on the lower side of medium. If the pan is too hot you will burn the edges of the pancake and the insides will be runny. Low-to-medium is the way to go!

In a medium bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix evaporated milk, juice of 1 lemon, and lemon zest. Allow to sit for five minutes, then add egg, vanilla, and melted butter. Mix to combine.

Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients. Stir gently to combine. Splash in more evaporated milk if mixture is overly thick. Stir in blueberries. Again, check to make sure mixture isn't overly thick.

Melt butter in heated skillet. Drop batter by 1/4 cup measures and fry pancakes on both sides until golden.

With a covering of pure maple syrup and an extra serving of  softened butter, these pancakes truly make a delicious breakfast.

  4. Hi NatAsha. Those pancakes do look scrummy! I love anything lemony! I hope you and the family have a very happy day together on Sunday. Our Mothering Sunday was quite a while ago now in March. My 15 year old granddaughter is very involved with these United Nation Days and she absolutely loves them. Last time she was Russia trying to defend their Human Rights record. She's also been on the Security Council. I think she's ready to rule the world !!

  5. Hi Natasha, I have been following Ree's blog for a couple of years now and first got onto her because of her photography. I love her photos. I don't think that there is anything that this lady can't do. She is amazing. The kind of wife and mother I would love to be. I didn't realise she had a cooking show too. We have not had it here (South Africa) yet... I love the chocolate thing she made. So yummy and not fattening at all ;)

  6. I live in the US and have never even heard of her until now! :~) Isn't it funny how that works?

    My mulberry tree is blossoming like crazy... I wonder if I could use mulberries instead of blueberries? I think I may have to try this recipe both ways!

    So great to be here.....
