Into a small mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter until thoroughly combined.
Add the sifted dry ingredients to the buttermilk mixture and whisk until just combined; batter may still have a few lumps. Fold in the lemon zest and allow the batter to sit for 10 minutes.
Lightly grease the Emerilware 11-inch Cast-Iron griddle and heat over medium-low heat. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake (you can cook 3 pancakes at a time on the griddle). Place about 2 scant tablespoons of blueberries over the top of each of the pancakes and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the batter bubbles and is golden brown around the edges, flip over and continue to cook for about 1 minute longer.
Transfer pancakes to a warmed platter or baking sheet and keep warm while you repeat the above process with the remaining batter and blueberries.
Serve the pancakes hot, with butter and syrup.
