If you love Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins then you will LOVE these Fluffy Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes! These make a great addition to your next Sunday brunch!
Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are good, but these Fluffy Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes are great!
These pancakes are ridiculously easy to make because we all know how difficult it could be to actually sit down and eat breakfast during the week. You can meal prep these and freeze them so when you are in a hurry (for me it’s basically every morning) just pop them into the toaster!
There is something about Sunday mornings that calls for breakfast or brunch. Since we don’t ever have time to eat a real breakfast during the week, Sunday is always my favorite time to make my favorite breakfast items, including these pancakes!
HOW TO FREEZE THESE PANCAKES
After you make the pancakes, let them cool completely. Wrap each pancakes individually in plastic wrap. Try to get little to no air when wrapping the pancakes. Place in the freezer until ready to eat. When ready to eat, simply unwrap the pancakes and pop them in the toaster until soft and warm!
These Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes are a bit different because they are not like your traditional buttermilk pancakes..they have a hint of lemon with a touch of poppy seeds. They resemble a moist buttery lemon poppy seed muffin….so good! The melted butter that’s added to the batter really gives these cakes an extra hint of deliciousness, so be sure not to skip out on that part. Top with fresh fruit, I found that raspberries compliment this perfectly. These are best when stacked high just how I like them so enjoy!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THESE LEMON POPPY SEED PANCAKES

THESE LEMON POPPYSEED PANCAKES ARE:
- Simply amazing. They are soft and fluffy and everything you want in a pancake
- Perfect for breakfast or brunch

I like to top these delicious pancakes with a pat of butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh raspberries for even more fresh flavor!
