There is just something about the flavors of blueberries & freshly squeezed lemons that reminds me of spring!  With Easter just around the corner I wanted to come up with something different for our holiday breakfast this year rather than just regular ho-hum pancakes!  This simple breakfast looks impressive but is actually very easy to make and it totally fits the bill for an excellent holiday breakfast!

Whipping up something amazing doesn’t have to be difficult… and using Bisquick Baking Mix makes these pancakes not only quick, but incredibly light and fluffy!  With just a hint of lemon, these delicious poppy seed pancakes are totally irresistible when topped with Homemade Blueberry Syrup!

The great thing about this recipe is that the Blueberry Syrup is that it can be made up to 2 days ahead of time (and you definitely don’t want to skip the syrup)!  That means putting this special breakfast on the table Easter morning is a breeze!
