Seasonal Meyer lemons add a pop of sunny, bright, fresh flavor to these Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes! These light and fluffy pancakes are perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch!
Let’s take a break from Super Bowl food for a minute and pretend that this warm weather that Colorado is going to be having today and tomorrow is going to last until summer. To celebrate the next couple days of warmth, we’re talking 60+ degree temperatures folks, I plan on making a stack of these bright sunny Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes Saturday morning!
I know this unseasonably warm weather in just a tease, it always is this time of year. In fact after our perfect Saturday weather it’s back to the cold and snow Sunday and Monday, which also means I’ll be stuck running on the treadmill which I despise being on for any longer than 5 miles. But I plan to take full advantage of the two gorgeous days we will have and get my butt outside to soak it all in, literally…these legs are looking pretty pasty.
When I think of spring and warm sunny days my mind automatically starts craving foods that are bright and fresh especially those using one of my favorite ingredients, lemons. I love adding lemon to chicken, desserts, dressings and now breakfast foods. Heck, I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to my love of lemons! Currently Meyer lemons are in season and when I spotted a bag of them at the grocery store I knew I had to come up with a new recipe using them.
Since I haven’t shared a new pancake recipe in a while I decided that Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes would be perfect because I’m sure I’m not the only one craving spring right now. The lemony pancakes taste so decadent, but in reality they are full of healthy ingredients. Whole wheat pastry flour, Greek yogurt and honey for sweetness make them hearty and the perfect way to start the weekend. Instead of topping the pancakes with maple syrup I thought that a Meyer lemon Greek yogurt sauce would be a nice change up and guess what? I was right! The sauce is made up of plain Greek yogurt, Meyer lemon juice and honey for sweetness. The flavors mimic those in the pancakes and seriously take that fluffy, light stack to the next level! Cure those winter blues with stack of these delicious pancakes and let’s all cross our fingers that warmer weather will come sooner rather than later.
