Lemon Soufflé Pancakes with Blueberry Maple Syrup

As a professional chef, Sunset reader Carolyn Kane works most weekends. But on one rare free Sunday morning, she offered her fiancé a choice of dishes for brunch: Austrian crêpes, corn clafouti with smoked salmon, or frittata with goat cheese and artichokes. His answer: "All I really want is good old-fashioned blueberry pancakes with maple syrup." This is what she served, and he's now her husband.

Yield: Makes 8 pancakes; 3 or 4 servings
