Recipe: Lemon Corncakes with Blueberry Syrup — Fo Reals Life

October 10, 2012 October 10, 2012/ Morgan Eccleston

Okay remember how I don’t like breakfast? Well I don’t mind breakfast foods – I just don’t want to eat them in the morning. I love breakfast for dinner though, don’t you?! This kind of tastes like summer to me. Especially with all of the blueberry picking we did. So lucky us we still have a little bit of blueberries left in the freezer. The syrup would be good all over anything. I’m a sucker for fruit syrups though. It’s simple and just lets the blueberries do their magic. My kid was saying “Pancake! Mouth! Yummy!” – I was smitten. The Mr. wasn’t that excited but I’m going to pretend that didn’t happen. More for us!
