lemon poppy seed pancakes

yesterday was pancake tuesday!
did you eat pancakes? we sure did.
i made our favourite banana pancakes as well as trying out a new recipe; lemon poppy seed pancakes! they were delish. i wish i knew where i got this lemon poppy seed recipe so i could give credit, but i don't know or remember. {please let me know if you recognize this recipe as yours!}

lemon poppy seed pancakes
aka pure deliciousness
2 cups unbleached ap (all-purpose) flour

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/3 cup poppy seeds
zest of 4 lemons
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted

butter, to serve (and for pan)

to make the pancakes combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt in a large bowl. 
in another bowl the buttermilk, eggs, butter, lemon zest and poppy seeds. 
add the wet to the dry. stir all the ingredients until they are just combined. don't worry if the batter is a bit lumpy, you don't want to over mix.
heat your skillet, pan, or griddle to medium-hot and brush it with a bit of butter. pour about 1/3 of a cup of batter into the skillet. 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. repeat with the remaining batter. 

right now? i'm sitting in my living room with the smell of freshly cut grass, trying not to be angry with the stinking power company who has again shut off our power {after almost 24 hours of no power and no power the night before that either}. sigh. this is africa.
i think i'll go enjoy a leftover pancake.
and watch this video {please watch it here on hulu if you live in the united states as the quality on youtube is ridiculously bad}:

ps i totally heart kristin wiig.


  1. Mmm! Those pancakes sound delish! I had a friend over for a pancake lunch & when I told Darren about it yesterday evening, he said that he REALLY wanted pancakes for dinner. So I got to enjoy pancakes twice! We had blueberry pancakes at lunch then strawberry pancakes at dinner. And bacon. Mmmmm bacon! So salty & delicious! Here they do back bacon so a little different from what we're used to in Canada but very yummy still.

  2. That is a really funny video!

    "different rules for the kids...cause they can't use the stove"
    "make them dark... darker than the others"
    "hide them... on the stairs"


  3. Oh man, I love that you appreciated this video as much as I did, Terra. :) Kristin Wiig kills me. I love her.


I love hearing from you!
