Lemon and Poppyseed Pancakes with Strawberry Puree

Poppyseed Pancakes

So this is one of my new favourite pancake recipes. I LOVE pancakes- it’s become a Sunday/Weekend tradition for my boyfriend and me to treat ourselves and have pancakes. This recipe isn’t one of my most healthy, but it also isn’t that unhealthy, especially if you make it with my strawberry puree instead of adding sugar or maple syrup.

I pinched this recipe from a lovely website lecremedelacrumb

So these are her wonderful words of wisdom (a little edited by me to add in my puree) 🙂

For the batter:
1¼ cups all purpose flour
1½ tablespoons poppyseeds
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
juice of 2 medium lemons
1 cup buttermilk
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 cup strawberries, diced

For the strawberry puree:

Handful of strawberries

1 tbsp of water


Prepare the puree by whzzing the strawberries and water in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
Preheat large nonstick pan or skillet over medium-low heat and spray with cooking spray.

Prepare the pancakes. In a large bowl combine flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and whisk until well mixed. In a medium bowl whisk together lemon juice and sugar. Add buttermilk, vanilla, and egg and whisk until smooth. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.

Pour dry ingredients into the well you just made. Whisk all ingredients until just incorporated (batter will be lumpy). Gently stir in the diced strawberries.
Pour ¼-1/3 cup batter onto preheated pan or skillet. When edges begin to look “dry” and bubbles form and burst in the batter, use a large spatula to flip pancake. Cook 1-2 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with strawberry syrup and additional fresh strawberries and powdered sugar if desired.


The best thing about these pancakes? You can enjoy them during the week too! Just cook up a whole batch, store in an air-tight container in the fridge and heat up in the toaster when you’re ready to eat them. Yum!
