1. Put the dry ingredients, through the
cinnamon, in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to
combine; reserve.
2. Combine the buttermilk, eggs, maple syrup,
and vanilla extract and whisk well. Add to
the reserved dry ingredients and whisk until
just combined (dry sections are OK). Add
the blueberries and lemon zest and fold
to incorporate, but do not overmix or the
pancakes will be tough.
3. Turn on the Cuisinart® Smoke-less Contact
Griddler®. Select Grill/Griddle and set to
4. Once preheated, use a ¼-cup measure,
drop batter onto preheated griddle (if you
like extra-buttery pancakes, put 1 teaspoon
of butter on each plate and melt before
dropping batter on plates), and set the
count-up timer. Cook pancakes until bubbles
form, about 4 to 5 minutes; flip and cook
until done, about 3 minutes longer.
5. Transfer to warm plates to serve. As you
finish each batch of pancakes, you can
keep them warm on a wire rack placed on a
baking sheet in a low oven (200°F). Repeat
until all the batter is used.
