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® Griddler®. Select Griddle and set to 350°F.

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.
