Berry Pancakes for My Valentine
Happy Heart Day!
What says "I Love You" better than berry pancakes?? Not much, I don't think.
Sunday paper, strong coffee, fresh berry pancakes, sunshine warming the living room, and morning doggy kisses - that's how we spent yesterday morning. And that's really all we needed to wrap up our Valentine's Day weekend.
I hope your day was filled with love....and kisses...and good food.

1.5 cups all purpose flour (I substituted half for whole wheat flour)
3 Tbsp sugar
1 3/4 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1.5 cups milk
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup strawberries, diced
3/4 cup blueberries
Heat griddle pan.
Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another bowl, combine milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add the berries and stir just until combined.
Add 2 tbsp butter to griddle to prevent sticking. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, flip once bubbles appear on the surface, after about 2-3 minutes. Cook until second side is brown. Makes about 12 pancakes.
Serve with maple syrup and strawberries.
