Double Berry Puff Pancake

Got red, white and blue on your mind yet? We’re starting to think ahead to 4th of July already. My son is most excited about lighting sparklers. They’re not allowed in California, but luckily we’ll be on the East coast for the big day so we can easily locate them! My husband is most excited for the food I’m going to make, and I’m most excited about utilizing berries to make some patriotic treats!

Let’s start with this Double Berry Puff Pancake.

It’s definitely a fun summer breakfast treat if you find that you have access to some wonderful, fresh berries.

How to Make Double Berry Puff Pancake

How to make a Double Berry Puff Pancake:

The recipe begins in the blender. Use your blender (or a mixer) to combine the batter ingredients, and then pour it into a hot, oven-safe skillet.  A cast-iron skillet works perfectly.

Scatter fresh berries on top.  I like to use blueberries and raspberries.

Move the skillet to the oven, and bake the pancake until it’s puffy and cooked through.  It’ll get all wobbly looking like you see in the photo.

Serve slices with fresh cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. My sweets-loving hubby drizzles maple syrup on top too.

Enjoy this special treat. And may you twirl a sparkler or two in the coming weeks… just for fun. Cause when’s the last time you did that, right?
