Lemon Poppy Pancakes

-1 C pancake mix (Krusteaz)
-1/4 C Lemon Juice
-1/2 C Milk
-1 tsp lemon extract
-1 tsp poppyseed
-Zest of lemon (some)

-1/2 C powdered sugar
-Dash of Milk
-Couple squirts of lemon juice or lemon extract if you are like me and used all the lemon you had in the pancakes

You know the drill, you mix, you cook, you butter, you glaze, you EAT!

Why anyone makes plain pancakes I will never understand. I have just about as much fun scheming up pancake flavors as I do eating them.  I tried these pancakes both with syrup and with a glaze.  The glaze definitely won.  If you had some yummy lemon infused honey that would also be an option.

I think these would also be good with a berry compote on them.  I like berries with lemon things.  OR a raspberry sauce.  That would be really tasty as well.

I prefer lemon poppy seed to regular lemon things.  Lemon cake is cool, but lemon poppy seed cake is AWESOME.  Same for pancakes.  Lemon would be nice, but lemon poppy seed is PHENOMENAL.  Plus, how many times do you really taste a light, refreshing pancake?

Name one time.

Seriously, name one.  They are always heavy and a lot of them just taste heavy.  Why?  Why are we so insistent upon making a pancake taste even heavier?  It is already pretty dense compared to other things.  It isn't as crispy as a waffle.  It is not as delightful as stuffed french toast.  We are furthering the disadvantage of a pancake by weighing it down.

Alright, so that was only a half serious rant, but it has some truth to it.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
