Berry Filled Pan-CAKES

We are lucky enough to be surrounded with Blackberry bushes, so during late summer and early fall the kids and I pick berries and fill the freezer!  But what to do with all of these berries?!

I saw a similar recipe floating around FB so I decided to make a coupe little changes to the recipe to suit our family’s taste.  I made these for our Saturday morning breakfast a couple weeks ago and they were a huge hit!

I used my typical homemade pancake recipe and instead of putting them on a griddle, I made them in a cupcake pan.

Pancakes:

  • 2 cups flour (we use non-bleached)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk

Mix the dry ingredients first, then add the rest.  Fill cupcake tins  half full with pancake mixture.   Cook 7-10 minutes.

As they bake the centers will fall creating a “crater.”

Fill crater with fresh fruit of your choice and return to the oven for 5 minutes, sprinkle with sugar (powdered or granulated). Serve.

We used the blackberries and they were delicious!

*the next time I make these I will get some better pics for ya!
