Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes


  • source

  • We love Sunday Morning breakfast at our home.  These pancakes are a delicious variation of lemon poppy seed muffins and have become a favorite Sunday Morning addition, when we're not running late to church...
  • yields 8 pancakes (I doubled it)

  • {What you need}
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • cooking spray

  • Stir the milk, vinegar, lemon extract, and lemon juice together in a bowl; let stand 10 minutes to curdle. Whisk in egg, butter, and vanilla extract.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds  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.

Serve with powdered sugar and lemon juice or a fruity syrup.  You could even make a glaze to go with it instead of syrup. Or maple syrup would be great, too.

Hi, Im planning on making these pancakes for dinner tonight, and was just wondering if you think adding a cup of greek yogurt would make them too sour. Ive never done the milk/vinegar thing, but Im gonna give it a go tonite. It just seems like lemon juice, vinegar, and greek yogurt= too much sour, so I hope they turn out delicious!
