  2. Squeeze the juice of your lemon into a saucepan, removing any seeds.
  3. To your lemon juice, mix in your sugar/sweetener of choice, then heat on the stove over low/medium heat.
  4. While your lemon juice and sugar mixture is heating, crack 2 eggs into a bowl and beat well.
  5. Once lemon juice is well heated, turn the fire off and leave to cool for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Slowly pour your lemon juice mixture into your eggs, whisking constantly. Continue whisking for 1 minute at a constant pace.

Notes

  • Once you have added in your flour to the pancake batter, make sure you do not over-mix it or it may become stodgy.
  • Do not over-heat your milk to ensure it does not cook the batter.
  • Can replace sugar with zero calories sweetener such as erythritol or monkfruit.
