Have any of you been to  It’s a collaboration with that I love and follow.   Their Instagram account is @homelovestories.  Yesterday they posted a fun idea. Their idea was to have a virtual block party where everyone posts their breakfast this weekend to the same account. The idea is for people to share their breakfast recipes and pictures with the hashtag #whatsforbreakfast.  Of course, I wanted to be a part of the block party.  I’m not one to miss a party. 
I’m still terrible with my food pictures.  (Mostly because I’m hungry and just want to eat whatever I make as soon as it’s ready).  One day I’ll figure that part out-maybe.  Anyway, this is what I made for the virtual block party this morning.  I hope you like them!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. sour cream

Sift and mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Make a well or hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in the center and then gently stir together.  You don’t want to over-mix.  By just incorporating and not over-mixing, you will keep your pancakes light and fluffy.  Heat a large skillet to medium high heat and ladle into pan 3-4 pancakes at a time.  It usually takes about 1-2 minutes per side.  You will know it’s time to flip when the center starts to bubble.  I coat the pan with coconut oil to cook them in, but canola and vegetable oil work fine, too.  Serve immediately with your choice of syrup.  I always heat my syrup up first.  These would be really nice and much prettier if you sifted powdered sugar on top and added some fresh blueberries.  In my dream world, I did that.  Enjoy! I hope you enjoyed the block party.  🙂

  1. I’m not much of a breakfast eater . . . just coffee, please. That said, we do pancakes for lunch or dinner sometimes. BFF loves blueberry pancakes. I bet the lemon kicks them up a notch.

    Enjoy the block party!

    1. I always try to make one big breakfast at least one day of the weekend. It’s more of a brunch and an excuse for a morning cocktail with the hubs. Haha. (and it’s always after I’ve had a cup from my French press) 🙂

  2. I’m with Coco, you’re killing me with these food posts, I had a smoothie. And not a fancy one either.
