Home Grown Berries, A Pancake Breakfast Recipe, And A Big Surprise

This is the face of my Saturday mornings lately, and I’m loving it!  The Raspberry and Blackberry bushes I planted shortly after I moved in to my city townhouse have given me their first big yield, and on Saturday mornings one of the first things I like to do is collect the newly ripened berries for cooking. I keep my berry bushes on trellises in my front yard to give them the optimum amount of sunlight, and to keep them looking a little more organized and upright than they would if I let them flop around like they would prefer.

A few Saturday’s ago I used my home grown Raspberries and Blueberries in a Pancake recipe, to surprise my boyfriend with when he came to pick me up for a day trip getaway to Ladew Topiary Gardens.

The recipe I used involved:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted and cooled butter,
  • And 2 cups of Blueberries and Raspberries mixed into the batter.

The pancakes came out deliciously, and I filled two big glass goblets with orange juice while I waited for him to arrive. Little did I know he had a surprise in store for me as well!  Once he arrived I began dropping the pancakes on the hot griddle, and he came up behind me while I was stirring the batter, and presented me with this, and a certain questions that I was very pleased to say “Yes!” to.

    Pan,
    I agree! Proposals + pancakes= one great way to start your Saturday. If only all of life’s celebrations could center around breakfast food. Mmm!
