Lemon Milk Pancakes

My second waffle to pancake recipe is Lemon Milk Pancakes based on my Lemon Milk Waffles. Like that recipe, this is a foundation recipe to me. It is what I build others from. In the Oat Gluten-Free Lemon Milk Pancakes recipe, I explain how I convert a waffle to a pancake recipe.

I like my pancakes soft and delicate. One technique to avoid lumps is to add 1/3 to 1/2 of the wet mixture to the dry and whisk. This thick mixture is easier to drive the lumps out. Then add the balance and whisk to blend.
