Another edition of Aunt Jemima pancakes! This time with lots of strawberries and blueberries for a very fruit pancake 😀 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 😀
