Blackberry Citrus Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

24 01 2014

I did it! Pancake Friday two weeks in a row! That’s what I get for planning ahead 😉 I knew I’d be out of town all this week and unable to get creative in the kitchen, so I finally got around to writing up a recipe from a few weeks ago.


They’re similar to last week’s citrusy recipe, but with a few slight differences. Blackberries were on sale and looking good, so I bought a quart of them at Publix. Oh, and when you’ve got whipped cream in the fridge that needs to be used up, pancakes make a great vehicle.



Dry Ingredients:

1.5 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup dry oats
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 TBS sugar
dash of cinnamon
dash of orange zest

Wet Ingredients:

½ tsp vanilla
1 TBS honey
¾ cup Orange juice
1 cup almond milk
2 eggs
2 TBS butter, melted

How to:

As per usual- combine the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry ingredients in another. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry.

Fold in the chopped blackberries.

Ladle about ¼ cup batter onto a hot griddle or fry pan. Allow batter to bubble.
