  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Limoneira Meyer lemon zest & juice
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil dried
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup Greek yogourt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil for frying


  • 1/3 cup Greek yogourt


  • Measure the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl. Sift together to blend.
  • Add half of the Meyer lemon zest, Parmesan, oregano and basil. Toss with a fork to distribute evenly.
  • In a second bowl, beat the egg lightly.
  • Beat the yogourt and milk together until smooth, and add to the egg.
  • Add the melted butter as you continue to beat. The mixture should be smooth and creamy in texture.
  • Spoon about half the dry ingredients into the wet, and fold together.
  • Add the remaining dry ingredients, and fold over until well blended and smooth in texture. It may already begin to bubble.
  • Add the Meyer lemon juice last, stirring it quickly into the batter.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 °F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place it in the oven to warm up.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a flat frying pan, and when it’s hot, spoon about a quarter of the pancake batter into it.
  • Cook the pancake on one side, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking, until the edges are firming up, and it is bubbling all over its surface.
  • Flip carefully, and cook a minute or two to finish the other side.
  • Transfer to the warmed baking sheet, and repeat for the remaining three pancakes.
  • When they’re done, blend the 1/3 cup of Greek yogourt with the remaining Meyer lemon zest.
  • Divide between two plates, and top with a dollop of the yogourt.
