I have made tons of pancakes since I first got married in 1989! They were always such an inexpensive meal to make and very filling, and there are so very versatile as far as flavor!
I have always wanted to try lemon poppy seed pancakes, and so I did… They came out so amazingly, that I can’t wait to make them again!
I also made a lemon sauce to serve on them, and it was ridiculously delicious!
These are the goodies that make this recipe special!
Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet in another.
Then combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients together.
Cook over medium low heat.
Flip when bubbles appear.
While you’re making the pancakes, get the sauce ready. Mix all the ingredients except the cornstarch.
I like to take a spoonful of the sauce out, and mix it with the cornstarch, and then add it to the rest of the mixture to prevent lumps.
Let boil for a few minutes till it starts to get a little thick.
You could serve these with regular maple syrup, but the lemon sauce is so much better!
You could also serve these with a dash of whipped cream, so delish!
