Pancake Redux

If you're not in the mood for banana pancakes, try these. They're delicious and, while cooking, they smell like baking pie.

Not only are they lip-smacking good, but they're rich in antioxidents. Pancakes as health food!

Berry Pancakes
2 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup flour
½ tsp. salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the pan
1 cup berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or a mix)

Preheat oven to 175-degrees F. In a medium bowl, whish sugar, baking powder, flour, and salt. Add egg, milk, and butter, whisking to combine but still slightly lumpy.

Heat a large nonstick skilled over medium heat. Pour batter on the pan and dot with berries. Cook until large bubbles cover the surface, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully and cook until other side is golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in oven.

Repeat with remaining batter and berries. Serve with butter and maple syrup or a dusting of powdered sugar. Leftover pancakes can be wrapped and refrigerated; simply reheat and serve. Serves 3.

I prefer banana pancakes myself, but Shane doesn't like them, hence the berries.
