Lemon Pancakes

My boy’s favorite meal of the day has always been breakfast. The little man had never said “no” to anything I gave him for breakfast. Ok, well, that is not exactly true, there is one things. He used to love scrambled eggs, then all of a sudden, something happened and now he refuses to eat them. That is the only thing he will not eat. That doesn’t limit me too much, but I still like to bring the boys a little variety for breakfast.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you know?!!
Last Sunday morning, I didn’t have any berries or fruit and I ran out of honey. (Hate it when that happens.) I really didn’t want to make them plain-old pancakes, so I dug up a lemon from the bottom of my veggie crisper. I think those were the best pancakes we’ve ever had!!

3 tbs melted butter
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Zest from 1/2 of a large lemon

1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients but the zest. Whisk well.
2. Grate the zest into the batter, stir until all combined.

3. Let stand for about 10 minutes (the baking powder needs a little time to do its magic)
4. Meanwhile rub your pan with some oil and preheat the pan on medium heat.
5. Ladle out the batter and cook until you see bubbles. Flip and cook a little bit longer. If you are not sure if your pancake is ready, touch the middle of the pancake. You will be able to feel if its still gooey in the center or nice and firm.

6. Serve warm with butter and syrup.

Enjoy and have a great day!!

  21. I love lemons, I love pancakes and the two together? Mmmmm I’m excited to try these. Thanks for linking up, I’m featuring these on Topsy Turvy Tuesdays this week!

  22. I made these for breakfast and they looked nothing like yours. And the texture was not beautiful either. I doctored them and they were still yummy. But somewhere I went seriously wrong.

  23. I did all of those things actually. My pancakes were almost too bubbly. The biggest thing was that they were a weird texture, almost gummy.
    Anyways, I added flour and they normalled out. Still good breakfast.

  24. LEMON PANCAKES! That sounds SOOOOOO wonderful! I can’t wait to try these. I found you on Pinterest at a Board created by Finding Joy In My Kitchen! Your blog is beautiful!

    Awesome blog! Thanks again.
