Donal's Notes

Pancakes and waffles are my last-minute emergency dessert and the basic batter is incredibly adaptable. I like to add lemon zest and poppy seeds for flavour and texture, serve with fresh strawberries, a vanilla mascarpone and drizzle with syrup for a dessert it’s hard to say no to.

Mix together the plain flour, baking powder, sugar, poppy seeds and lemon zest in a mixing bowl.

Cut the strawberries in half and set aside.

Place a frying pan over a medium high heat and add in a little butter. Drop heaped tablespoons of the pancake batter into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown on both sides.

Serve stacks of three pancakes with strawberries, a dollop of mascarpone cheese and drizzle with maple syrup.

So easy and yummy, and I made them with gluten free flour. They have such a great flavor that I only used a little maple syrup and no carbohydrate coma afterward. I had given up on pancakes because I always ended up putting so much syrup on them that I would have to take a nap after eating them. Thank you Donal - I'm trying to watch my weight and eat healthier and the calorie count on each of your recipes is so useful. I also love that I can change the amount of servings and the recipes gets adjusted. I'm single and recipes for 4 or more mean I'm eating the same thing for at least 2 meals a day and for multiple days in a row. I'm not a good cook or an intuitive cook but you've got me back in the kitchen and trying new things. That's something I would have thought was nearly impossible. You also help me feel like I am connecting with my Irish roots. You rock Donal! This American gives you 2 thumbs up.
