Take your pancake game to the next level with these delicious Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with a Creamy Lemon Sauce. They are perfect for a spring or summer breakfast and best of all – they are deceivingly simple to make.
We all know that pancakes are the ultimate breakfast food – but not only are traditional pancakes carb bombs – they can also get a little boring when you eat them week after week.
These lemon poppy seed pancakes come together using only a blender so clean up is a breeze! If you don’t have a blender (get one) you could also use an electric mixer.
I decided to make the sauce because I just didn’t feel like traditional pancake syrup would do these justice and it turned out great.
It’s a little tangy, a little sweet and a touch creamy and really puts these pancakes over the top.
Do yourself a favor and stick to fresh lemon for this recipe. You really need to lemon zest and fresh lemon juice is the best!
I also love to top them with fresh blueberries for an extra pop of flavor and sweetness.

Add all the pancake ingredients to a blender, except the poppy seeds. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed. Stir in the poppy seeds.
Heat a skillet over medium heat, then add pour pancake batter into pan. I use 1/4 cup of batter per pancake.
Cook until you begin to see bubbles forming on the edges of the pancake, flip and cook until the pancake has browned on each side.
In a small sauce pan, combine the butter, lemon juice, water and vanilla. Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in sweetener, poppy seeds, lemon zest, and sour cream.
Serve pancakes topped with sauce and enjoy!
