Fist Full of Blueberries

We got a little container of blueberries in the farmshare, and I saw a recipe on The Gingered Whisk for Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes. Blueberry pancakes tend to be a bit too fluffy and sweet for me, and don't stand up well to the blueberries. This recipe is fluffy, with some crunchy. I added some lemon zest to enhance the flavor of the blueberries. I also used 2 cups milk and the juice of one lemon instead of buttermilk.
