lemon poppy seed glory

sometimes you just need a lazy saturday morning. and sometimes that lazy saturday morning just needs to include brunch. and sometimes that brunch needs to be something spectacular and lemon poppy seed pancakes.

so, get out...

2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/3 c. sugar
pinch of salt
1/3 c. poppy seeds
zest of 4 lemons
2 c. buttermilk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. melted butter, plus some for greasing the pan and serving
strawberries, raspberries, and sugar for topping


combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt in a large bowl. mix the buttermilk, eggs, butter, lemon zest and poppy seeds in another bowl. add the wet to the dry and stir all ingredients, but don't overmix.

heat pan over medium-hot and brush it with a bit of butter. pour about 1/3 c. of batter into the pan. wait until the pancake bottom is deep golden in color, then flip with a spatula and cook the other side until golden and cooked through. while your pancakes are cooking, place strawberries and raspberries in a sauce pan and sprinkle with sugar. warm over low heat until the sugar and fruit juices turn syryp-y. pour over pancakes and EAT.
