Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • Butter or cooking spray for the griddle

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Dry Ingredients:
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  1. Mix the Wet Ingredients:
  • In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, maple syrup, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  1. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. It’s okay if there are a few lumps; overmixing can make the pancakes tough.
  1. Heat the Griddle:
  • Preheat a griddle or a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Grease it with butter or cooking spray.
  1. Cook the Pancakes:
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake. Spread it slightly into a circle using the back of a spoon.
  • Drop a few mixed berries onto each pancake.
  1. Flip and Finish:
  • Cook the pancakes until you see bubbles forming on the surface, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  1. Serve Warm:
  • Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate, and keep them warm in a 200°F (93°C) oven while you cook the remaining pancakes.
  1. Top and Enjoy:
  • Serve the Maple Berry Pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup and extra berries on top. Add a pat of butter if desired.
