I just made pancakes using this recipe and obtained the most gorgeous fluffiest pancakes! My Husband said, at first bite, Throw out all your other pancake recipes! The only changes I made;
1) left out the poppy seeds
2) added 2 tsp of pure vanilla extract (instead of 3)
3) added 1 tsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice along with the zest.
They cooked quickly, oh and before serving I popped them in the microwave for 30 secs as I noticed a little raw batter. Served 2 each with maple syrup and macerated strawberries. Freezing the other 5 1/2. ... So tempted to have another one! : p
Pros: Straightforward recipe
