...family day pancakes

Monday, February 17, 2014

Happy Family Day! I was so inspired by the pancake recipe on Whimsy Darling that I was urged to make my own pancakes to celebrate the holiday! We haven't had a ton of family time this weekend as Ryan has had some work to do outside the house, so these blueberry and coconut pancakes were a nice little treat to break up these long last few days for him!
The recipe I used is adapted from the Pancakes or Griddle Cakes recipe in my Joy of Cooking cookbook; I also doubled the recipe so we would have some leftovers for the next couple days!

Grocery List
3 cups all-purpose flour
6 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3 1/2 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt 

3 3/4 cups almond milk
6 tbsp melted butter
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh organic blueberries
1 cup sweetened dried medium coconut

-Combine and whisk the first 5 (dry) ingredients in a large bowl; combine the next 6 (wet) ingredients in a separate bowl.
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined (make sure not to overmix the batter, overmixing will prevent your pancakes from being light and fluffy!).
-Heat your frying pan, or griddle on medium heat; when the griddle is hot pour your batter (I used about 1/2 cup per pancake).
-Flip pancakes when air bubbles start appearing.
-Remove from skillet when both sides are browned.
I found this recipe when doubled yielded approximately 20 medium-sized pancakes.

If you are like Ryan you might like raspberry jam on your pancakes, but I prefer maple syrup. Whatever you fancy, load it on and enjoy!!



  1. Yum! I have only tried syrup on my pancakes, but now I have to give the jam a try :)

    1. I personally like jam on the leftover pancakes a day later!

  2. Mmmm. I'm drooling! And the Joy of Cooking is one of my fav's too!

  3. Thanks Erinn! And thanks so much for stopping by!!
