Ingredients

FOR FILLING

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons cashews, soaked in water for 1 hour, then drained

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons non dairy cream cheese

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon agave nectar

Pinch of fine sea salt

FOR PANCAKES

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons soymilk

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon canola oil

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

½ teaspoon dried thyme

½ teaspoon lemon zest

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup finely ground cornmeal

1 tablespoon baking powder

1¼ cups fresh blueberries, divided

½ cup fresh or frozen corn, rinsed Canola oil, for cooking

Confectioners’ sugar, for serving

Directions

To make the filling: In a blender, blend all the ingredients until completely smooth. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.

To make the pancakes : In a medium-size bowl, combine the milk and lemon juice; the mixture will curdle and become like buttermilk. Stir in the sugar, canola oil, salt, thyme, and lemon zest. Add the flour, cornmeal, and baking powder. Stir to combine; a few lumps are okay. Stir in 3/4 cup blueberries and the corn. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly coat a large skillet with oil and place over medium heat. Working in batches, scoop ¼ cup of batter into the skillet for each pancake. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the edges look set and bubbles are appearing on the tops of the pancakes. The bottoms should be golden brown. Flip and cook the other side for 2 to 3 minutes. Keep warm in the oven until all the pancakes are cooked. You should get 12 pancakes.

To assemble the sandwiches , place 6 pancakes on plates. Top with a generous tablespoon of filling and a generous tablespoon of the remaining blueberries. Top with the remaining 6 pancakes. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve.
