Chocolate, Blueberry, Raspberry: Simple Ideas for Homemade Specialty Pancakes

You can enjoy peach, blueberry, or chocolate chip pancakes from the comfort of your kitchen. You don't have to eat out at Ihop or other restaurants in order to eat specialty pancakes.

Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes

Aside from serving up simple buttermilk pancakes, I enjoy mixing things up. The two obvious areas for mixing things up are (1) the batter for making the pancakes and/or (2) the toppings that are served with the pancakes.

The batter recipe is basically the same for all of them. I either make them from an off-the-shelf brands like Aunt Jemima or from scratch as from a prior post that can be seen here.

The basic scratch recipe that I use is the following. From there, I change things up depending on what I'm in the mood for or what's available in the kitchen.

Buttermilk Pancake Batter

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp butter

Add 1/3 cup cocoa powder to the batter.  Pour Hershey's syrup on top for chocolate-on-chocolate action.

The next few pancakes have various toppings and making them could be as simple as chopping up fruits or laying berries on top.

Fruits are always great for breakfast and fantastic source of vitamins and antioxidants. Then add cottage cheese as a source of protein, calcium and Vitamin B-12.  And you'll have a delightful breakfast.   Fruits will provide the natural sweetness for the pancakes; thus, syrup is not needed.

Peach on top of Pancakes
