I promised you something to do with the lemon curd that you might have left over, didn’t I? Well, I delivered. In a big way. These raspberry pancakes exceeded my expectations when I made them over the weekend. I had pancakes similar to these last year and although these pancakes are not the same recipe from the restaurant, they were inspired by that meal.

These raspberry pancakes are packed full of lemon flavor. Zest and juice in the batter, and lemon curd slathered in between each layer. Blueberries would also be good in this recipe, but I had raspberries that needed to be eaten. And eaten they were.

Can I Substitute the Raspberries? //

Absolutely! I would personally recommend any berries you like. The lemon curd complements the zesty-ness of the raspberries really well, but it would also go great with apples, strawberries, blueberries, or bananas. You could also omit the berries altogether or replace them with nuts or butterscotch chips!

Serving Suggestions

You can’t go wrong with pancakes for breakfast, but what’s stopping you from having them for dessert? Regardless of when you serve this dish, these raspberry pancakes pair beautifully with an almond milk smoothie or hot drink.

Top these pancakes with powdered sugar, maple syrup, or a sweet and smoky bacon jam to bring this dish to another level. And if you’re in the mood for pancakes but prefer a more traditional flavor profile, give my blueberry pancakes a go.

FAQs

Can I replace the sour cream with buttermilk?

Everyone has their preferences (I am beyond weird about mayo, so I totally get it). I would instead use my buttermilk pancake recipe and add the juice, zest, and lemon curd to that. This recipe’s batter is thick because of the sour cream, and I think that it might be too thin if you used buttermilk.

Could I make these pancakes ahead of time?

If you’re wanting to prep breakfast before serving it, I would recommend preparing the batter the night before and keeping it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Then in the morning, you’ll have fresh and hot pancakes in just minutes!

My pancakes keep breaking when I flip them. What did I do wrong?

Flipping pancakes is a skill that takes a little practice to master. The raspberries can make this step especially tricky, so be sure to slide the spatula under the pancakes until it’s centered. Lift your pancake (just for a moment) and flip. It’s also important not to flip your pancake until

How to Store Raspberry Pancakes (With Lemon Curd)

If you have some pancake batter left over, no need to panic! You can use it again for breakfast the next day or even for a quick evening snack the day after. All you need to do is store the batter in an airtight container and refrigerate it. The batter will be good to use for up to 2 days. I would not recommend cooking the pancake and then storing it, as the pancake will become soggy.
