  1. Step 1

    Place avocado, egg and buttermilk in a blender. Blend until smooth. Combine the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Add the avocado mixture. Stir to combine. Add the blueberries and raspberries and stir to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush with a little melted butter. Pour three ¼-cup portions of batter around the pan. Use a small palette knife to spread each to an 8cm disc. Cook for 2 mins or until golden underneath and bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook for 2 mins or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter to make 12 pancakes.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, combine the lemon juice, extra sugar and ¼ cup (60ml) water in a medium saucepan. Place over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until the sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high. Bring to the boil. Cook for 3-4 mins or until the syrup thickens slightly. Set aside to cool. Add the lemon zest and stir to combine.

    Divide the pancakes evenly among serving plates. Drizzle with the syrup.
