So this morning I found myself trying to russle up brekky for myself and the girls which would be quite easy on a normal morning, except this morning I was running extremely low on the Bainne. 

But to my delight there in the fridge was a golden coloured carton of buttermilk to me that only means one thing, and that's pancakes.

For this fruity selection of  buttermilk pancakes you will need...

1 cup of plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 egg
1 cup of buttermilk
1 tablespoon of poppyseeds
1/2 the juice and zest of a lemon
1 strawberry per pancake 
Vanilla bean infused sugar
5 blueberries per pancake
Icing sugar

So firstly make your bubbly pancake mix then, heat your pan then drizzle with a little oil one that is flavourless. Next dollop your batter onto the pan, I usually make 2 pancakes at a time.

Once your pancakes are on the pan start adding your fruit, for the strawberry pancakes I like to thinly slice the strawberries but only use one per pancake as they are so juicy you don't want to make a soggy pancake ;) once your pancakes are all cooked then lightly sprinkle them with your vanilla bean infused sugar...a match made in heaven.

For the blueberry pancakes once the pancakes are in the pan I like to scatter the blueberries evenly over the batter but again after much "testing" I find 5 is plenty especially for the juniors in the house you don't want to overwhelm them with flavour. Once you flip them that's when the berries go from a beautiful blue to a gorgeous deep purple. Dust with icing sugar then serve.

Lastly on my colourful crusade are my lemon and poppyseed pancakes I will literally use this flavour combination where ever I can and today it was in pancakes. 

With the batter left over I sprinkled in the poppyseeds then added the zest + and some of the juice of the 1/2 lemon. When I turned the pancakes in the pan I squeezed the rest of the juice over et voila c'est manifique...

From this recipe I made 2 pancakes of each fruity flavour
