I have a giant lemon tree in my backyard and every year in January, it showers me with thousands of lemons. I'm always looking for fun ways to use lemons and this year, I threw them into my favorite basic pancake recipe. I added some light and zippy lemon creme on the side to make these pancakes like a taste of heaven.
