Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes
I found these on a neat site, http://www.pickycook.com/breakfastandbrunch/lemonpoppyseedpancakes.aspx.
I halfed the recipe, so we wouldn't end up with a million pancakes. (With my family I can make pancakes for ever and they'll get eaten, but here its just me and Grandmom.) I think it made 5 medium pancakes
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. sugar
pinch of salt
3 Tbsp. poppy seeds (They were pretty full of poppy seeds, so you could probably use about 2 Tbsp.)
1 cup buttermilk
1 T butter, melted
zest from 2 lemons (I zested them all the way down to the juicy part pretty much as much as I could get off of them, made some nice and lemony pancakes!)
Combine dry ingredients. Mix together wet ingredients, poppy seeds, and zest. Combine wet and dry. Cook on hot skillet for about a minute on each side, or until golden brown.
Serve with maple syrup or fresh strawberries.
