Ranch Style Fresh Lemon Pancakes Topped with Homemade Elderberry Syrup

Our favorite homemade ranch style pancakes with a touch of lemon flavor is just enough to start your day with a boost!

One thing, if you use the lemon essential oil which I HIGHLY recommend, use only 1-2 drops. You can also add some real lemon zest too, but this is a wonderful way to add essential oils to your culinary cooking! Also, make sure you PUT THE ESSENTIAL OIL WITH YOUR MELTED BUTTER. This allows the oil to mix well as oil with oil gives the best over all flavor and won’t ruin the good properties of the  essential oil.


Our son Mitch making a batch for us!

2 whole lemons or 2 drops of Lemon Essential oils

2 1/4 cup of Almond milk

1 cup of Almond milk creamer

2 tbsp Vanilla

3 cups flour

¼ cup sugar

2 tbsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

2 whole eggs, beaten

¼ cup butter, melted

 

Directions:

Zest both lemons. Set aside. If your using the essential oil, mix your 2 drops with the melted butter. Measure the milk and add the juice of one lemon or your essential oil and butter. Stir and let sit for 5 or so minutes and then stir in the vanilla.

Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. . Pour in the lemons mixture, stirring gently. When its half mixed, stir in the eggs.  If your batter is too think add a little more milk.

Heat your iron skillet over medium heat. Next add butter to grease your skillet, drop in ¼ cup of batter and pour onto skillet. Cook first side until you see bubbles and flip and cook until golden brown.

Oh my will you taste the difference using essential oils! YUM!!!


Lastly is the Elderberry syrup which I have here on my blog.  Pour over your pancakes and enjoy goodness.

Now let me know what you think! I want to hear especially if this is your first time using essential oils in your culinary cooking! So proud of you!

Enjoy!

God’s blessings!
