My family loves pancakes and I love berry syrup. When I found blackberries on sale this week for $1.00 per container I decided to see if I could make syrup. It worked and it tasted great! My only regret is that when I went back to buy tons more of the berries, the sale was over. I was a bit crushed! Next time I will buy extra so that I can freeze them for syrup-making.
Super Yummy Pancakes
(The pancake recipe was inspired by one found on this website.)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 C. buttermilk
4 T. butter, melted
1 t. vanilla
2 C. flour
2 t. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
Preheat griddle. Melt butter and set aside to cool. In a small bowl, mix eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients. Add melted butter and mix just until blended. Do not over mix.
Using a large spoon or ladle, pour batter onto buttered griddle. Flip once, when pancake begins to brown. Serve warm with syrup.
Serves: 4 to 6.
Two 10-oz containers of fresh berries (I used blackberries)
Sugar to taste
Place berries in a saucepan and sprinkle with sugar (start with 1/4 to 1/2 cup). Let sit for about 20 minutes until you see that the berries are starting to get juicy. Turn heat on to medium-high until the berries start to boil. Adjust the heat so that the berries continue to boil and let them cook for about 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens (stir frequently). Mash berries with a masher or a fork. Serve warm over pancakes or ice cream.
Your family will love this in the morning!
