Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes

PancakesWhen I was a little girl, my dad used to make my brothers and I the neatest pancakes on our birthdays.  He would carefully spoon the batter on the griddle to form the number we were turning that year.  It was pretty cute and he got quite good at it over the years!  Pancakes always make me think of my dad.  Saturday morning pancakes were always his thing – he had his technique and there was no way he was going let us ruin a perfectly good batch of pancakes.  I remember he would let me nibble on the drips that would cook into what I called my “mini-pancakes”.  To this day, I get such a kick out of eating those cooked-up drips.

The pancakes I’m sharing with you today are perfect for your next brunch with friends.  I combined two breakfast favorites – lemon poppy seed baked goods and pancakes – into one extraordinary dish.  They couldn’t be simpler and yet they look so elegant and beautiful.  I just had mine with maple syrup, but I think they would be delicious if topped with fresh strawberries or blueberries.

You may think it is a waste of time to make pancake batter from scratch when it is so much easier just to use the boxed mix, but I promise these pancakes will be worth the few extra minutes of work!  They are fragrant, fresh, and lovely to look at : )
