Recipe Notes

  • If you don't like poppy seeds, you can still make this recipe, just leave them out.
  • Fresh lemon juice is best for this recipe. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and poppy seeds. Set aside. In another bowl whisk together the milk and lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. In a larger bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, melted butter, sugar and lemon zest. Stir in the lemon milk mixture. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients in a few additions.
  3. Heat a griddle to 350 degrees F or a frying pan to medium-low heat. Lightly grease with oil or nonstick cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter onto the griddle or pan and cook until you see little bubbles form. Flip and continue to cook on the second side until both sides are golden. Repeat with the rest of the batter. 
  4. To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, milk and lemon juice. Whisk out any lumps. Add more milk or lemon juice to thin, if needed. 
  5. To serve, stack the pancakes on a warm plate and drizzle the glaze over the top. Serve with fresh lemon and warm honey.
