My son and I like to make this breakfast favorite together. You can leave the berries out of the mix and sprinkle them on top, or sub in chocolate chips or nuts instead. —Elizabeth Stewart, Crab Orchard, West Virginia
Puffy and pretty, with a refreshing hint of lemon, this berry-topped pancake is a cherished favorite of Lillian Julow in Gainesville, Florida. What a melt-in-your-mouth morning wake-up or addition to a special brunch!
Nothing says "good morning" like these fluffy pancakes topped with a fruity homemade syrup. When I don't have the time to make the syrup, I'll sprinkle a few blueberries over the batter when I spoon it onto the griddle. —Katie Wollgast, Florissant, Missouri
For years, I made these pancakes plain. Then my husband and I started growing blueberries. What a delicious addition! I often fix a fluffy stack for my family. It's hard to fill up our grandkids, so I'm glad this recipe makes a big batch.
Biting into these delicately thin pancake packets sets off an explosion of flavors with every mouthful. "The berries bring a burst of fruity sweetness to the creamy cheese filling," Kristine Wright, St. Joseph, Michigan, observes. "Blintzes makes a luxurious breakfast or brunch...or a finishing touch to meal."
I came to North America from Denmark decades ago, and my mother used to make these pancakes for me and my siblings while growing up. Today, my children and grandchildren love these, so I often have to double the recipe.—Lise Thomson, Magrath, Alberta
