  • Same recipe, except I replace the lemonade with milk. I understand the reason for the lemonade, it’s useful when making scones as well, but I don’t think it’s necessary when making pancakes.

    • Same as above, but I replace the milk that originally replaced the lemonade with oat milk. It adds a hint of sweetness and tastes delicious 🙂

      I might have to try with lemonade still, sounds interesting.

  • The lemonade is necessary to those who can’t or don’t like milk….singulis gustum. (individuals’ taste)
    Maybe the milk bottle is nearly empty, just enough for a cup of tea or coffee, so make the pancakes with the lemonade in the ‘fridge, eat breakfast then go to the shop and buy some milk.
