  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbps oil
  • 1 egg


  • In a large bowl, rub the lemon zest into the sugar, until fragrant. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds, and whisk to combine.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, lemon extract, vanilla, oil, and egg.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined (it's okay if a few small lumps of flour remain). Let sit ten minutes.
  • Preheat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Scoop the pancake batter onto the griddle by ¼ cup scoops. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until large bubbles form on the surface. Flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Serve warm with fresh fruit and syrup.
