One of my favorite pancake recipes! This has some great flavors from the lemon zest, vanilla and pecans. A nice twist on an old favorite.
1. Preheat griddle pan or large sauté pan over medium heat. In a large bowl, mix the pancake mix with sugar and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, mix together the low fat milk, egg, butter and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the milk mixture and chopped pecans. Whisk just until well combined. Butter sauté pan, or use cooking spray. Spoon by 1/4-cupfuls onto the griddle; being careful to not let edges touch. Cook until the tops begin to bubble and just turn golden, about 3 minutes, flip for 1-2 minutes more on other side until light golden brown. Transfer to a plate, and repeat with remaining batter until all pancakes are finished. Serve hot, with maple syrup, fresh berries, and powdered sugar, if desired.
