Buttermilk Pancakes with Blackberries

There’s no better treat on a Sunday morning than homemade pancakes.  In our house, we get so excited about pancakes that my daughter goes to bed giddy thinking about breakfast the next morning.   On this special Sunday, I made these really delicious Buttermilk Pancakes with Blackberries!

We use a lot of pre-made pancake batter and it’s wonderful! We love it because it’s easy and takes delicious. But there is something really special about making pancakes from scratch. It doesn’t take that much more time but whatever time it takes, it’s worth it.

I really love putting the extra time into a recipe that makes my kids so happy!

I decided to go with blackberries as the topping because of the contrast in color and taste. And blackberries are my son’s favorite fruit! He loves the taste and can eat them like candy.

And because this was a special breakfast, we decided to use our very special maple syrup.  My husband’s grandfather made real maple syrup when he ran his farm and we are lucky enough to have two jars left.  And trust me, this syrup gets better with age!

I really love to layer my pancakes so I opted for the smaller pancakes. And when you use 2-3 tablespoons for each pancake, each one comes out the same exact size.

These homemade Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries are good to the last drop and the last bite! Enjoy!
