Huckleberry Pancakes

My husband grew up eating huckleberry pancakes at his Grandma’s house.  When we took our kids to her house this summer, they picked huckleberries in her beautiful garden with their Great Grandma… I am so amazingly thankful that my kids get to have a relationship with Ehren’s Grandma.  She is the most generous, kind, thoughtful woman on the earth and all 4 of us adore her.  So…. this weekend at the farmer’s market, when Jacquelyn saw some huckleberries for sale, I knew we needed to buy them.  And I knew Ehren would want to make them into pancakes for his kiddos.  Because he is a good daddy who loves his babies.  He kicked me out of the kitchen, and went to work on the whole wheat pancake recipe below.  When I asked him if I should list this recipe under “whole wheat pancakes” or “huckleberry pancakes” he was borderline offended and informed me that there is no other pancake other than huckleberry pancakes.  However, if you want to branch out and make chocolate chip, blueberry, or banana pancakes, just start with this base and add your own goodies.  Luckily for you, you don’t live with a man who objects to all other pancakes.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
METHOD:
1.  Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and maple syrup in a bowl.
2.  In separate bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder.
3.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir to combine.
4.  Heat skillet over medium heat.  Coat with a thin layer of bacon grease, pour desired amount of batter onto skillet.  Cook about 1 minute, add your huckleberries (or other goodies), flip, and cook about 1 minute longer – or until golden brown and cooked throughout.
