Single Lady Lemon Poppy Seed Pancake


A single lady pancake can also be called a single man pancake. I'm not a man, so therefore I do not write in that person. But, single men, you are not excluded from this post. 

ACTUALLY nobody is excluded from the post. A single lady pancake essentially serves one. One single lady, one single man, one man or lady in a relationship. 

NOBODY is excluded from pancakes. Ever.


There is nothing more perfect than having a relaxed and lazy, homemade breakfast. Sometimes you want pancakes and sometimes you know that if you make an entire batch and have no one to share them with,  you'll eat them all. Don't act like you're all a controlled bunch of people out there!

Sometimes it's just you in the house and you want to have pancakes for breakfast with a mug of coffee and a good book. 


I cannot take credit for this single lady pancake. 'Single lady' recipes were all over the internet last year. Naturally, I'm only getting on the trend now. I still haven't even read The Harry Potter books. I probably never will either.
The Sugar Hit and Take A Megabite were just a few great bloggers representing the single lady recipes. And we cannot forget the boss lady Joy the Baker for bringing single lade pancakes into our lives. Thanks gurl, you the best. 


So, this recipe makes one perfectly fluffy pancake. That's all there really is to say, right? 

Should I just leave it there? Yeah, I think I will. 

Spend your next day off having a pancake in the kitchen. You deserve it. 

Enjoy,

You'll most likely have most of the ingredients for these, ahem, this pancake in your house already. Which makes these easy, breezy and beautiful!


Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium sized bowl.


Stir in the caster sugar, lemon zest and poppy seeds.  


Crack the egg into a small bowl, whisk and pour over the flour mixture with the lemon juice.


Using a fork, gradually stir in the milk. Adding more if needed. 


Heat a medium sized frying pan and add a little butter or oil.  Pour the batter into the pan and cook until the edges are setting to set and bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake.


Flip over and cook for another minute.


Remove from the pan, place on a plate, top with berries and DROWN (like your sorrows) in maple syrup.
