Pancakes are an absolute weekend favorite in our household!
I usually end up whipping up a batch with whatever flavours I have handy. This time it was a bunch of fresh and vibrant lemon peels!
All you need to up the aroma and taste, is an zest from a whole lemon.
For getting that perfect fluffy texture (check video), you need to use all purpose flour or Maida. Wheat flour won’t give you the same results.
I have also used an egg for this recipe to add to that fluffy texture.
For a healthier version of pancakes and to substitute egg, check out my other recipe.
