A small amount of whole-grain cornmeal gives these fruity pancakes a hearty texture without sacrificing fluffiness. Lemon zest provides enough floral sweetness that we don’t need to add any sugar to the batter. Serve with your favourite syrup or enjoy them topped with more berries.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

All-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

Whole-grain yellow cornmeal


Baking powder

1 tsp(s)

Baking soda

½ tsp(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Low-fat buttermilk

1 cup(s)

Lemon zest

2 tsp(s)


1 large egg(s), lightly beaten

Fresh blueberries

1 cup(s)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, lemon zest, egg, and 3 tbsp water. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the blueberries.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium. Spoon the batter by ¼ cupfuls onto the pan. Cook until the tops of the pancakes are covered with bubbles and the bottoms are lightly browned, about 3 minutes; flip the pancakes over and cook until lightly browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  3. Serving size: 3 pancakes
