A Berry Good Morning! Strawberry Blueberry Aunt Jemima Pancakes

2 Comments

Another edition of Aunt Jemima pancakes!¬† This time with lots of strawberries and blueberries for a very fruit pancake ūüėĬ† It’s been so much fun experimenting with different fruits and fillings and there is a lot more I want to try.¬† My mum and I¬†had ourselves a field day¬†on Saturday at Bulk Barn, picking up almonds, walnuts, granola mix, and lots of other goodies for baking!¬† It’s going to be a fun next few weeks, yay.¬† So far I’ve done plain banana¬†with some sliced bananas and strawberries on top, and banana with dried fruit and nuts¬†mixed in with the batter and sprinkled on top (dried cranberries with golden raisins, pumpkin seeds, and cashews).¬† This time we wanted to try a berry pancake so we mashed up about a pint of strawberries (yes, again with my beloved potato masher.¬† This thing is a godsend) and used around half a pint of blueberries.¬† We added the mashed strawberries to the pancake batter and gently folded in the blueberries.¬† The result was a sweet, fluffy, fruit pancake!

The pancakes were fluffier and had that tart sweetness from the juicy fruits!¬† These cook differently from the ones with banana in them though.¬† There’s more moisture from the fruit and it takes more time for the pancake batter to be completely cooked through so as a note, definitely let them hang out in the pan longer so they have a bit more time to crisp up and brown.¬†¬†You don’t want soggy pancakes!¬† I had myself two large¬†pancakes with powdered sugar¬†dusted on top and lots of sliced strawberries, blueberries, sliced almonds, and honey!¬† I love fruit for breakfast and I’m warming up to different kinds of nuts so I really enjoyed these.¬† I’m thinkin’ tropical for next week ūüėÄ
