Lemon Poppyseed Cake in Pancake Form!
Lemon poppyseed cakes are one of those old-timey desserts that take an honest inspiration from nostalgic ingredients and simpler times in the kitchen. But over the years, this dessert seems to have become a competition between recipes to see who can pump their cake with the most butter and sugar. That ends today with these paleo lemon poppyseed pancakes.
For this paleo recipe, I decided to use cassava flour, which is lower in fat than nut-based flours. I also used coconut oil, which gives these ‘cakes a buttery flavor without the dairy. These choices make the pancakes light and fluffy, perfect for topping with some dairy-free yogurt, a little extra lemon zest, and some maple syrup. Feel free to freeze these babies and put them in the toaster when you want to devour!
