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.
