Save These Freezer Berry Pancakes For Any Of Your Meals
Pancakes are always a good idea!
For this recipe, you will need plain flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, eggs, milk, butter, vanilla extract, and frozen berries. If you want to make these gluten-free, you can use almond flour, chickpea flour, or rice flour. You can also use a quick flour mix, like Bisquick if you don’t have another choice.
You can also substitute the baking powder with baking soda if need be. As for the cinnamon, other good spices to use are cocoa powder, nutmeg, allspice, or vanilla powder. While you may need to use eggs for this recipe to taste and feel good, you may want to exchange them for an egg replacement, or flaxseed, if you want the pancakes to be vegan. Finally, replace the milk with half and half, cream, almond milk, or coconut milk.
As the name suggests, these pancakes are all about the berries. Frozen ones work great, but you can use any type, like blueberries, raspberries, currants, or cherries. If you don’t have berries, try any fruits you like, such as strawberries, peaches, or bananas.
Make sure you allow the pancakes to set and cool off before you store them. The trick is letting them get fluffy, then remove from the heat, and set aside. Once frozen, you can simply remove them and fry them on a pan at low heat.
Enjoy these pancakes anytime by themselves, with syrup, whipping cream, or butter! These are a fantastic snack, breakfast item, and even as a dessert any night of the week.
