In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the egg, buttermilk, butter and lemon juice. Stir until just combined; the batter may be lumpy.
Heat a griddle pan or a cast iron skillet over medium heat and grease with oil or butter.
Using 1/4 cup measuring cup, fill it half way and pour the butter onto the pan in a circle. Add a few blueberries on top. Wait until some bubbles start to form and then flip the pancakes over. Cook for about 3 more minutes until batter is cooked through. Serve pancakes hot.
Heat the lemon juice in a small non-reactive pan on medium heat until hot, but not boiling. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl, then gradually whisk in the sugar. Whisking constantly, slowly pour the hot lemon juice into the egg/sugar mixture, then return the mixture to the saucepan and continue to heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture reaches 170 F and is thick enough to cling to the spoon, about 3 minutes. Immediately remove the pan from the heat and add in the cold butter and mix until incorporated. Stir in the cream, vanilla and salt, then pour through a strainer into a small nonreactive bowl. Cover the surface of the curd directly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed.
