Strawberry Mascarpone Poppyseed Pancakes

I don’t make hot breakfast for my family all that often. Especially during the school year. It’s just too hectic with everyone leaving the house and different times–the earliest at 5:45 am! But these pancakes are so amazing, I’ve made them twice in one week, once for breakfast and again for dinner. We all loved them that much! I’m pretty sure it’s the mascarpone cheese that makes them so delicious.

I’ve also included a recipe for fresh strawberry syrup, but you are certainly welcome to use whatever syrup you’d like. I double the recipe for my family of five, and we usually have 4-5 pancakes left over. I assure you, there is no problem getting rid of those at breakfast the next morning!
