Lemon Pancakes

It doesn’t need to be Shrove Tuesday to eat these lemon pancakes. This impressive pancake stack is the perfect Saturday morning brunch to share with your housemates, are super cheap to make and far healthier than a bacon sandwich! We love topping ours with lemon juice and strawberries, but you could use whichever toppings you have to hand such as banana, berries, honey or even Nutella!
