Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes with Fresh Blueberries

What's for breakfast at your home today?

Before you believe the facade, we didn't have these for breakfast either. (we had them for dinner :)

Breakfast around here usually includes my favorite cereal (Multi-Grain Cheerios) after my run. The Manchild has recently learned how to eat cereal with a spoon and milk without spilling it all over the place. Ryan is usually suited up and halfway out the door before I can ask him if he managed to eat anything.

Let's just say we've gone the "Milk Chocolate Instant Breakfast + Banana = Shake'' route for that man who sleeps in busy guy.

Now that you know how breakfast is here, you can see why I can't pull off the whole I-make-a-hot-meal-for-my-family-each-morning-for-breakfast shpill. We just don't do a big breakfast around here unless it's a holiday or a special occasion. There's no time in the mornings! Nonetheless, we do have a breakfast-for-dinner meal a few times a month. So we still get our breakfast-food-fix.

I know lemon-poppy seed is probably a cliche flavor combo at this point, but it 'aint broke, right? I couldn't resist throwing this in our dinner menu this past week. I'm a sucker for blueberries - throw them on a stack of thick, fluffy pancakes?

I'm sold.

  11. Beautiful photo and delicious recipe~ My husband and I have been eating this for breakfast the past two days. When I asked him if these are better than pancakes at IHOP, he said "yes" without any hesitation. :) Btw, I shared your recipe on my tumblr page (hldailyeats.tumblr.com). Thanks for the delicious breakfast~ :)
