Pancakes with Berry syrup

I had half a bag of mixed berries – blueberries, raspberries and cherries – left over from the ‘Afternoon of Smoothies!’. What better way to start Sunday morning than with light, fluffy pancakes and a delicious syrup of berry-goodness?  Having the pancakes in bed 🙂

Pancakes and berry syrup

1½ cups milk
¼ cup vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar (optional)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
3 tbsp melted butter

Serves 4

Make sour milk by combining milk and vinegar and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk.
Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until there are no more lumps.
Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the medium-heated skillet. When bubbles appear on the surface, flip and cook until browned on the other side.

Berry Syrup
2 cups berries
1 cup maple syrup

Heat and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir frequently till berries break down.

Drizzle warm syrup over hot pancakes.
