Sunday Morning Pancakes with Peaches and Berries

Sunday mornings: there is a reason so many songs are written about them.  They are my favourite time of the week: work is over, errands are done, and I have an entire day to fill with my heart’s desire!

My heart’s desire often includes a good brunch.  Keeping with the lazy Sunday theme, my Pancakes with Peaches and Berries are made with natural and preferably organic pre-packaged mixes.  For the pancakes, I prefer Coyote, which pre-mixes the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  For the fruit, I prefer PC Organics frozen berry mixes, and I add fresh stone fruits (peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots) when in season.  When working with frozen fruit, berry mixes tend to thaw out more evenly.

Serves 2.  Prep time: 10 minutes;  Cooking time: 15 minutes

  • 1/2 cup pancake mix
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or water)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 scoop unflavoured protein powder (optional)
  • 1 cup berries and/or diced stone fruits
  • Butter for cooking
  • Maple Syrup (optional)

 

  1. Add ~2 tbsp butter to large skillet, and preheat on medium
  2. Whisk together pancake mix, almond milk, egg and protein powder and let rise (~5 minutes)
  3. Once butter has melted, scoop batter onto skillet to make 4 pancakes
  4. When batter starts to form bubbles, flip pancakes and add fruit to skillet.  Add additional 1 tbsp butter if needed
  5. Stir fruit occasionally, until frozen fruit has cooked through and/or fresh fruit starts to fall apart (~5 minutes)
  6. Remove skillet from heat. Place 2 pancakes on each plate and add with half of the fruit mix.  Top with maple syrup if desired
