Really great recipe!
This was a wonderful treat to have on a Sunday morning. I loved the light and refreshing taste of the lemon. We did not add the thyme. We topped it with whipped cream.
Classic buttermilk pancakes are just the beginning. You can jazz up breakfast (or dinner!) with lemon and ricotta, blueberries and maple or bananas and chocolate.
