Celebrate Mother's Day with a Kid Friendly Recipe!

To celebrate Mother’s Day this year, we recommend this Sunday Morning’s Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes recipe. With easy instructions and a lot of mixing, having kiddos help you cook will make your morning breakfast extra special! Cooking with children increases their social and motor skills while providing a mindful and healthy relationship with food and food prep.


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Step one

Stir the milk, vinegar, and lemon juice together in a bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Whisk in egg, butter, and vanilla extract.

Step two

In a separate bowl, combine and mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, poppy seeds, and lemon zest until well combined. Pour the milk mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until the batter is mostly free of lumps.

Step three

Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour ¼ cup of batter per pancake into the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, about two minutes. Flip the pancakes over with a spatula and brown the other side, about another two minutes.
