Ok, Ok, Ok, I know it’s a bit of a late post seeing how “National Pancake Day” was yesterday and all BUT “Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes” are better late then NEVER! I swear my days are getting away from me more and more and more. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir here knowing we are all slammed with our daily business and routines. Although, some days just feel a bit more overwhelming then others!
Typically, Tuesday’s here @ www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com “Pretty Bitches Can Cook Too” are built around “Taco Tuesdays” so that made yesterday a Taco Tuesday Takeover! LOL, a pancake hijacking! These pancakes are DELICI-OSO tho! Simple flavors paired up with yogurt and fruit which creates a party in your mouth and is yummy in your tummy!
Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes
- 2 Cups of Oat Free Flour
- 1 Cup of Almond Milk
- 2 Eggs
- 1 1/2 tbsp of Poppy Seed
- 1 Fresh Squeezed Lemon
- 2 tbsp of Coconut Palm Nectar or Agave Nectar
- 2 tbsp of Greek Yogurt (your flavor choice)
- 1 tsp of Pure Vanilla
- 1 tsp of Baking Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- Greek Yogurt (your flavor choice)
Pre-heat your skillet to medium heat. Mix pancake ingredients into a bowl and spoon out into your pan flipping once it starts to bubble. Then layer your “Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes” w/ “Yogurt & Fruit!”
Getting ready for “Thirsty Thursdays” (STAY TUNED NEW COCKTAIL POSTED EVERY THURSDAY) here @ www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com by experimenting in the kitchen tonight. Figured a “Raspberry Rosewater Gin Rickey” would do the trick! I knew those mixologist skills would come in handy again! I was a bartender for 7yrs and questioned would that chapter of my life come in use again in the future or would I look back at it as a waste of time?
Simple Answer: I think everything we do in life leads us to where we are headed and eventually suppose to be. Everything happens for a reason! All the trials and tribulations brought me here to this chapter and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
Cheers to that!
Raspberry Rosewater Gin Rickey
“Raspberry RoseWater Gin Rickey”
- Muddle Raspberries
- 1 1/2 oz of Bombay Gin
- 1/4 tsp of RoseWater
- Big Squeeze of Agave
- 1/2 of Fresh Squeezed Lime
- Club Soda
Some liquor stores carry “Rosewater” and sometimes you have to find it at a specialty store. I grabbed mine at a European Mart here locally. Rosewater has a very strong flavor and yes, its roses distilled so you get that rose smell and flavor. Muddle a handful of raspberries into your shaker. Add remaining ingredients minus the club soda. Give a good bartender shake while singing, “Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake Your Booty”! Pour over a glass of ice and top off with club soda!
