Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce



I was so excited to receive a goodie box from my friends over at Paradise. Paradise has been producing the most delicious candied fruit for over 50 years and is the largest manufacturer and supplier of consumer packaged Candied Fruit in the world. One item I received was the Candied Lemon Peel, which I love. I wanted to thank my friends and create something special that they would enjoy and came up with Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce. The pancakes are so mouth-watering. I can't wait to make them again. And to make them even more special, this luscious sauce is spooned right on top. My family loved them!
