BM #93 Week 1 Day 2 - 

My little one is a citrus flavor freak. So to please her taste buds, I made these lemon flavored pancakes for breakfast and someone when to school with a smile on her face.

With whole wheat flour, milk and lemon, these pancakes turned out super fluffy. I topped the pancakes with kiwis, chocolate chips and blackberries with a side of milk.

I usually keep wheat flour-baking powder mix ready to make pancakes on demand. The only tedious job is zesting the lemon. But since I used just 1 lemon, I managed it in the rush hour. 

Sometimes I add flax meal soaked in water but this time around, I skipped it. I use an electric griddle which can accommodate 8 pancakes in a single batch which makes the whole process so much faster.

Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda a pinch
Salt a pinch
Sugar 1 Tbsp (or adjust as needed)
Milk 1/2 cup (adjust depending on the flour)
Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp (juice of 1 lemon)
Lemon Zest 1 tsp (zest of 1 lemon)
Olive Oil 1 tsp
Chocolate Chips as needed (Optional)

Method Of Preparation -

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda,  meal, sugar and salt.

In another bowl, mix milk, olive oil, lemon juice and lemon zest.

Add in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Gently mix until well combined making sure the bubbles don't escape.

On a hot griddle, pour ladleful of batter, sprinkle chocolate chips (if using) and flip when the bubbles start popping. Cook on both sides and remove.

Stack the pancakes, top them with fruits of your choice, chocolate chips and drizzle some maple syrup or chocolate syrup. 


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Makes 6-7
