Ingredients
Syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and diced
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Batter
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons poppyseeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • juice of 2 medium lemons
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
Instructions
Syrup
  1. Add strawberries, sugar, water, vanilla, and honey to a medium sauce pan and heat over medium heat stirring throughout until sugar is dissolved, remove from heat. Use an immersion blender to puree syrup (or you can transfer the mixture to a regular blended and then pulse for about one minute). When syrup is smooth with only small bits of strawberries left, allow to sit and thicken over very low heat until pancakes are ready.

Pancakes
  1. Preheat large nonstick pan or skillet over medium-low heat and spray with cooking spray. 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. 

  2. 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

  3. Pour 1/4-1/3 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.

Recipe Notes

*for the strawberries, this recipe calls for about 2 and a half cups. Just get a quart-sized container and split the strawberries in half between the syrup and the pancake batter, you don't need to follow exact measurements.
