Batter Coated Fruit Pancakes

Saturday, July 24, 2010
We just love fruit coated with pancake batter and especially at the start of fall for apple season, we make these battered fruit pancakes with slices of tart apples.

This basic pancake batter is perfect for any fruit you use, we are big apple fans here and love them with maple syrup and butter on top.

The best part of a fruit-filled pancake is it can become a dessert too, all you have to do is add whipped cream and a little caramel ice cream sauce topping.

These are super easy to make in minutes and the kids love them too.

Try some whole red raspberries, chopped cherries, or even dried raisins and cranberries to have a variety.

We love this recipe and big breakfast, sometimes these accompany Baked Pancake Casserole or our Simple Baked Bacon and Egg Cupcake Quiche the kids absolutely love both, and if you're not in a hurry try our Simple Homemade Pork Breakfast Sausages!

  5. I see people trip over each other as they walk down the street talking on their cell, so how can they concentrate to drive? I will calm myself with a large plate of pancakes, syrup and fruit.

  13. So right. We should be grateful for every day and all we have. I'm always trying to slow myself down because you never know what might be around the corner.

    Love the pancakes. Now I'm SO in the mood for a little maple syrup.

  14. Wouldn't it be so nice to live in the Italian lifestyle where there is no rush? Sometimes I look back on my day as a blur and can't remember the time in between. This was a great post to get your mind going and these pancakes would make anyone slow down to savor.

  24. Yes, totally agree with you not to rush and be cautious when doing things. And never to take things for granted. It's a very good reminder cos I had just burnt my fingers while rushing through with my cooking. I accidentally touched a very hot pot handle. I had to hold a packet of frozen peas for about 30 minutes to prevent the blisters developing!! Love your pancakes...anytime :D

  25. I rarely do pancakes, yours are so yummy!
