These took a few tries to get real lemonade flavor but were so fun! They are lemony and sweeter than a regular pancake. Top with some strawberries for arguably one of the best combos out there!
Lemonade Pancakes with Strawberries
Ingredients (for ~5 pancakes)
1 cup pancake mix
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
3/4 cup lemonade
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
~6 large strawberries
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Mix together the pancake mix, lemon zest, and lemon juice until really well mixed.
Add in the lemonade and yellow food coloring (if using).
Preheat a griddle or large skillet.
Spray with non-stick spray or butter and scoop the batter onto the pan.
Cook for ~3 minutes, once they bubble, flip and cook another few minutes.
While the pancakes cook, cut the strawberries into slices. Sprinkle in a little sugar and a tablespoon of water. Stir well.
Top the pancakes with the strawberries. Enjoy!
I loved these! The yellow was just to further encourage the lemon-ness. We made them first with just lemonade and there was zero lemon flavor.
Alternatively, spread some lemon curd (often sold near jelly) on a pancake and top with some strawberries for a similar vibe!
