Chris’ Lemon Pancake Breakfast

Chris doesn’t cook a lot, but breakfast is a specialty of his.  Lately, he has been fine tuning a recipe for lemon pancakes, and it is quickly becoming a treasured weekend ritual in our home.  His lemon pancakes are fluffy on the inside and delightfully crispy on the outside. Such a treat!

We enjoyed a batch this weekend on a blissfully quiet Saturday morning.  The Christmas decorations are up and holiday music  hummed in the background. We all still had our pajamas on.  It seemed like a good time to take a few moments to write in our family gratitude journal, an activity usually reserved for dinnertime.

A little taste of heaven, in more ways than one…

Chris’ Lemon Pancakes (serves 3-4)

1 cup unbleached flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

3/4 cup sour cream

1/3 cup milk

zest of two lemons

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl mix together the rest of the ingredients. Pour wet mixture into dry and stir.

Pour batter into pan and cook. Flip. Serve.

    How many pancakes does this recipe make?

    • Maureen says:

      The recipe serves 3-4 people. Chris usually doubles it just to make sure we have enough. We save the leftover batter and make pancakes the next day 🙂
