How to make it
- In medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix with fork.
- In another medium bowl, whisk eggs until slightly foaming and bubbly around the edges.
- fold in cheese, vanilla and honey then add buttermilk and combine well.
- Slowly add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and fold to mix until JUST combined.
- Cook on prepared, hot griddle(medium heat for no stick, but you can cook on a lower heat if using cast iron, like I do) until bubbling on the edges, about 3 minutes or so, then flip, and cook another 2-3, until done.
- Heat honey, juice and butter over medium heat, in small, heavy saucepan, to boil. Immediately reduce heat to very low and simmer about 10 minutes, just to reduce slightly. (do not over heat or over cook, or you will make candy ;)
- Add zest and stir. Let cool slightly before serving over pancakes.
