Total: 30 Minutes


2 cups all-purpose baking mix
1 to 2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 1/4 cups cold club soda
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted
Crème fraîche (optional)
Garnish: fresh mint sprigs


1. Stir together baking mix, poppy seeds, and lemon zest. Whisk together club soda, egg, and butter in a small bowl; gently whisk egg mixture into poppy seed mixture. (Mixture will be lumpy.) Let stand 3 minutes.

2. Pour about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or large nonstick skillet. Cook pancakes 3 to 4 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look dry and cooked; turn and cook other side. Serve with Blackberry Maple Syrup and, if desired, crème fraîche. Garnish, if desired.
