Blackberry Pancakes

Just About There - 8x10 Print $35

My lovely neighbor had a freezer issue and needed to get rid of the frozen blackberries that she had picked the previous summer.  I said of course I would take them, not knowing what I would do, but pretty sure I could figure something out.  My first thought was jam.  The problem with this thought is that I don’t know how to make jam, nor do I have any of the equipment to do it or the ingredients, like pectin.  So I tried to make no pectin jam and low sugar jam at the same time.  This did not work the way I wanted it to.  I had three jars of  blackberry not-jam.  I decided to make pancakes and those were delicious.

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour       
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder  
2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda  
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt   
¼ cup melted butter
1 ½ cups blackberry puree with honey and lemon juice

Mix together the dry ingredients in a small bowl.  Mix together all the wet ingredients except the butter in a larger bowl.  Pour dry ingredients into wet and mix thoroughly.  Add melted butter and stir until combined. 

Cook on a medium hot buttered griddle until bubbles begin to show.  Flip.  Cook for another minute or so or until brown and cooked through.

So yummy just writing this makes me want to go and make a batch!
