Lemon poppy seed pancakes with fresh berries and sweet honey cream

We have quite a bit of pancake love going on at our house. We eat them at least once a week. Sometimes we get bored with plain ho-hum pancakes and dream of something with a touch of zing...something that will make our pancake lovin' hearts sing.

A coworker of mine is currently attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I have been considering this program as well. As I was peeking around the website, I found some terrific recipes, including these yummy pancakes.

I had never tried putting poppy seeds into pancakes.

I have to say, these are now one of my favorite pancakes. I can't wait to make them again! The lemon and poppy seed combination tasted terrific with the fresh strawberries. The whipped cream has vanilla and a touch of honey and was the perfect finish for this yummy breakfast treat.

We also drizzled a little warm maple syrup over these. I thought they were great with or without the syrup.

It looks so lovely with the poppy seeds, my hubby would love that, he is a poppy seeds fanatic, LOL.

We've been eating a lot of strawberries lately. This would be a delicious change from adding them to angelfood cake. Good job!

Jenn said...

Jazzed up pancakes is a good way to keep it from being the "same ol' same ol'"

I want to try some of that sweet honey cream

Looks fantastic! I'm not a cook, but I make a whole lot of buttermilk pancakes for my kids (they are picky eaters, but love pancakes, of course!)! I am sure they won't like poppy seedds, but I sure do-I'm going to have to treat myself! :)

I love poppy seeds and lemon in just about everything! And of course strawberries also make everything better! What a great recipe.

The minxes would like to know if you would consider adopting them. Between all of the cupcakes and the pancakes, they're ready to defect.
