A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • This recipe starts with a lemon cake mix, which I love! As I’ve said before many times, I love that you know what you’re getting with a cake mix. When you use a cake mix, you know you’ll get a soft, moist, and flavorful result that you can recreate again and again.
  • I used a Duncan Hines 15.25 ounce Lemon Supreme cake mix. You can use a different brand, but be aware that cake mixes do vary slightly in volume. There shouldn’t be a huge difference, but feel free to add a little extra milk to your batter if you use a bigger cake mix and the batter seems too thick.
  • This strawberry sauce is an old family recipe that my mom has made for many years. We LOVE eating it on top of pancakes and waffles! You could easily swap out the strawberries for blueberries or blackberries.

Ingredients:

  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 box (15.25 ounces) Lemon Cake Mix

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • zest 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp poppyseeds

FOR THE STRAWBERRY SYRUP

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the griddle to medium heat (I always recommend an electric griddle for pancakes).
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth (it's okay if the batter is slightly lumpy).
  3. Scoop 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle. Cook until the first side is golden brown and then flip.
