MIFS #174 - Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes and Strawberry Syrup

Welcome to the carnival! The Make it from Scratch carnival is your chance to share your projects. I hope you join us by linking up at the bottom of this post.

The strawberries in my garden are long done producing. In fact, I mowed them today, but that is a discussion for another post. Just because we are done picking them, does not mean we are done enjoying them. Far from it. For an easy, yet special breakfast these pancakes hit the spot. They would have been just perfect with a dollop of whipped cream, but even with out the whipped cream, we all gobbled them up.

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes (serves 4)
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
2 TB. melted butter
2 eggs

Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl beat the egg and mix in the buttermilk and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring with a whisk until the batter is smooth. Cook on a hot griddle.

Strawberry Syrup
4 cups frozen berries
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup water

Combine ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to boil on medium high heat. Simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally and serve hot or warm.
