Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp finely grated ginger
  • 12 handfuls of blueberries (about 125 g)


  1. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda together.
  2. Next, add the buttermilk, egg, honey, melted butter, lemon zest and ginger and mix together until thoroughly combined.
  3. Gently fold in the blueberries and let sit for 5-10 minutes. After 5-10 minutes, the batter should be slightly bubbly.
  4. Heat a tablespoon or so of butter or oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium/medium-low heat.
  5. Add a large spoonful of pancake batter to the pan and cook until golden brown on each side.
  6. Remove from heat and serve with a dab of butter and drizzle of honey.


If you don’t have buttermilk on hand like I sometimes do, no problem!  Just mix 1 tbsp of lemon juice or vinegar with 1 cup of milk, stir together and wait 10 minutes. It’s a great buttermilk substitute if you ever find yourself suddenly in need.
