Easter morning breakfast or brunch is a popular pick for family and friends get to togethers over the long weekend. If you are hosting a breakfast or brunch this Easter Sunday, my buttermilk, blueberry and blackberry pancakes are sure to be a crowd pleaser. The addition of cottage cheese in the batter increases the protein content of this meal and helps keep appetite under control – helpful to reduce chocolate cravings! To make a chocolate version, replace the lemon zest with 1-2 tbsp. cacao or pure cocoa powder.
