This is a delightfully moist and sweet treat, served well warm or chilled. Garnish with our special bourbon sauce, yogurt, fresh sliced fruit, or even applesauce for a multidimensional flavor that's sure to appeal to every palate. I garnished this one with a sprig of fresh mint leaf and some raspberries.
Recipe created by Lisa V Watkins
Story behind the recipe: I am always experimenting with different blends of flavors especially in the summer when the fruit is so sweet that you just can't resist using the freshly picked bounty.We had a wonderful guest from Vienna, Austria, Heidi, who adored these pancakes. She said she loved the way the pancakes are light and fluffy but when you bite into the pancake the lemon zest creates a refreshing surprise on your taste buds.
