2C AP flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/3 poppy seeds
zest of 4 lemons
2C buttermilk (2C milk + 2T lemon juice — sit out on counter for a few minutes until it curdles)
2 eggs, beaten
2T butter, melted and allowed to cool slightly
Extra butter for brushing griddle and serving
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and poppy seeds. In a different bowl, combine zest, buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Whisk until just combined.
Heat a skillet or no-stick pan over medium heat. Brush with a small pat of butter. Pour 1/3C of batter into pan. Cook until golden brown, flip and cook until done. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve with butter, fresh berries, or powdered sugar. Soooo good.
