3. British Sugar and Lemon Pancakes

The British sure do eat some weird foods, but these pancakes don’t qualify. The lemon adds a flavor you won’t find in many pancake recipes, but it tastes super yummy when topped with your favorite pancake accompaniments. On top of that, they’re easy to whip up any time the mood strikes.

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 ¼ cups milk
2 ounces butter
Granulated sugar and lemon wedges

Directions:
Sift the flour into a large bowl then stir in the salt. Make a well in the flour and add the eggs and half the milk. Whisk the ingredients together slowly. Keep mixing until all the lumps are gone and the batter is smooth. Pour in the remaining milk and mix together well. Melt the butter in a frying pan and ladle out 2 tablespoons. Add it to the batter and mix well. Make sure the butter in the pan coats the bottom and add the batter in the desired amount. Cook until the pancakes are golden brown on both sides. To serve, squeeze lemon juice on top and sprinkle with sugar.
