Cherry Vanilla Pancakes
This is what's brewing in our kitchen this morning...what's brewing in yours? We're up early with the sunrise today and decided to make cherry vanilla pancakes. For a special treat, Cloveleigh got an espresso mug of "cherry milk" to complete our early morning girl time. This recipe is so aromatic! In the photograph, notice the sweet two year old hand stirring the flour.
To make 8 pancakes:
Combine 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in one bowl.
In a second bowl, combine 3/4 cup of milk (we used vanilla almond milk...yum!), 1 egg (if you prefer), 1 tablespoon of butter (melted), 2 teaspoons of honey and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Combine both bowls into one. Let sit for 15 minutes.
Pit 1 1/2 cups of cherries and chop roughly. Stir into batter.
Heat skillet with butter, pour medium sized pancakes, flip, and serve when the perfect shade of black cherry brown. We serve with real maple syrup and butter. These would also be great with a sprinkle of confectioners sugar.
