Lemon Pancakes with lemon pancake syrup.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 10 pancakes
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 T. sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 2 T. vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • zest of one lemon
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 1⅓ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup water
  • peel of one lemon
  1. For pancakes, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl.
  2. Add oil, egg, milk, and lemon juice and zest, and mix well. It's okay if the batter is a little lumpy.
  3. Butter a warm griddle, and drop batter onto pan, making each pancake about ¼ cup of batter. Let cook until edges are brown and dry. Flip pancakes and cook the other side.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare syrup by placing sugars and water in a pan, and heating over high heat, stirring occasionally. Remove peel from lemon in large chunks, and add it to the syrup.
  5. Bring to a boil, and let boil 1-2 minutes for thin syrup, 3-4 minutes for thicker syrup.
  6. Remove lemon peel pieces with a spoon and discard.
  7. Serve warm pancakes with butter and warm lemon syrup.
