Lemon zest and juice add zip and brightness to these easy lemon pancakes. Top them off with honey or maple syrup, butter and a pinch of lemon zest for an added citrusy kick.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, oil, lemon juice and vanilla together in a medium bowl. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until mostly smooth.

  • Coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Cook pancakes in batches, using scant 1/4 cup batter per pancake, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. If desired, garnish with lemon zest and serve with butter, syrup and/or honey.
