They don’t call it Fat Tuesday for nothing!
I made this recipe for blackberry pancake, because I had blackberries and buttermilk on hand. By the time I got myself in gear today it was a late lunch but these were worth it. They were so fluffy, I bet they puffed up about an inch high. I cut most of my blackberries in half because they were so big and I carefully added them to the batter last so they didn’t turn it all purple. They were not overly sweet but with syrup they were just right. Warning, these are not low in fat or calories.
The recipe says it makes a thin batter but this was not thin at all, I had to spread the batter out with a spoon. They weren’t pretty, they were all different shapes and sizes but they were delicious. I made a lot so I will freeze some and see how well they hold up. Fortunately, I may celebrate Shrove Tuesday but I don’t participate in Lent anymore so I can have my leftover pancakes tomorrow and whenever I decide to try my frozen ones.
So anyone else celebrating with pancakes or some other sort of fried dough treat today? Share your recipes!
