Lemon Poppyseed Sourdough Pancakes

One of the easiest things to make with your sourdough discard, is PANCAKES! Prep them the night before, add a couple things in the morning and they are good to go!

I decided to spruce up my pancake recipe to add some flavor, so I added lemon juice, zest and poppyseeds. The hint of lemon makes these pancakes oh so delicious!
