Blueberries may be the classic adornment for pancakes, but thanks to Sam, I discovered my new pancake companion of choice: raspberries. This very photo is a testament to the sheer brilliance of putting raspberries in pancakes: all the pancakes were consumed before I had an opportunity to snap a picture. Enclosed in their tender, nutty pancake cloak, the warm raspberries are simultaneously tart and sweet and need nothing else–no butter, no syrup. When you have your weekly pancakes this Saturday morning, don’t default to blueberries. Give raspberries a chance and you just might find yourself saying, “Forget blueberries, I’ll take raspberries in my pancakes.”
*We find it works better to break the raspberry into pieces before adding it to the pancake, otherwise it will stick halfway out of the batter and burn when you flip the pancake.
