Fluffy Lemon Ginger Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger, or 1/2 tsp dried ground ginger

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Add the vanilla, lemon zest, and ginger, gently stir.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
  • This recipe makes for a fluffy batter, be sure to create thin enough pancakes so the center cooks completely, nobody likes a raw pancake.
  • To make classic pancakes simply don't add the ginger or lemon zest.
  • These are wonderful with a simple fruit sauce, as pictured, recipe coming soon!
Yields ~8 servings.
