I love lemon poppy seed muffins and who doesn't love pancakes? So I brought the flavors together in this fluffy pancake recipe one lazy Sunday morning, and we loved them. It's quick to make and adds a little something extra to our weekend breakfasts. I hope you enjoy them on YOUR lazy Sunday morning.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, poppy seeds, and lemon zest until well combined. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk a few times until the batter is mostly free of lumps.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes over with a spatula and brown the other side, about 2 more minutes.

These were a nice change to the standard pancake recipe. They were light and fluffy with a nice flavour. The lemon was a nice addition; present but not overpowering. I used all lemon juice rather than using white vinegar as well. Since they pretty much serve the same purpose I just opted to use the juice of one whole lemon. I used 2 teaspoons of poppy seeds.

These pancakes were amazing! I've never had lemon pancakes and they are so good-my 5 kids just loved them! We live at a high altitude (above 9K) so I only added 1 tsp of baking powder (and made my own since I was out....2 parts cream of tartar 1 part baking soda). They puffed up nice and the lemon flavor was wonderful! I used one small lemon for juicing and 2 whole lemons for zesting...we also put in the pulp from the lemon we juiced. That made them very lemony and really helped the lemon flavor come out. We topped them with raw honey and butter. We will def. be making these again! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Loved this recipe. I forgot to pick up a lemon but used reconstituted juice and did without the zest. Next time I will remember the lemon! Beware though that it doesn't serve 4 people. We had four of us and I doubled the recipe and we just had enough. They were great though! Read More

If you like lemon you must try these pancakes. They are my new favorite. The lemon/poppy seed combination is perfect. The came out light and fluffy and perfectly round. My kids had theirs with syrup but I had mine with blueberry sauce and they were just fabulous! Great Wednesday morning pancake! Read More

Absolutley delicious! These pancakes were so light and fluffy and the lemon flavor was very subtle. We served with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and some fresh whipped cream. Thanks for this amazing recipe we will be making this one again soon:) Read More

My family and I loved these. I sweetened some mixed berries and put on the top of these and some whip cream...YUM! But- I didn't have any fresh lemons on hand or poppy seeds and used lemon juice in replacement of the vinegar. SO good. Will definitely make again. Read More
