I found myself with and abundance of berries.
I use them in smoothies and freeze them and all that but I feel that blackberries in particular kind of annoy me in a smoothie. I find that the seeds get caught in your teeth.
I was going to make some muffins but I didn’t have any baking cup liners and didn’t feel like greasing and cleaning and all that nonsense, so I just opted for some pancakes instead.
I always make my batters in the blender because then you can pour it easily into the frying pan.
So start with your favorite pancake recipe. I use a lot of “groovy” stuff in mine to make them more nutritious, like oatmeal and chia and all that, but any batter will do.
Then add about 1/2 cup or more of black berries, or the berries of your choice.
The black berries make the cakes super purple, which in some circles is kinda cool.
While they are cooking on the first side, I gently add a few blue berries to each cake, that way they stay in one piece and don’t make the cakes double purple!
Keep the cooked ones warm until you are ready to serve.
I didn’t feel like the usual maple syrup so I added a dollop or two of my favorite lemon goat cheese and a few drizzles of honey.
Very nice way to start the day!
