Today is my son’s very FIRST birthday!! I wanted to start out the day extra special by making him some birthday pancakes!
These were super quick and easy to make and taste delicious too! Of course I knew he would only have a few bites so…oh, darn! More for mommy! 😛
Pomegranate Birthday Pancakes N’ Berries
For the pancakes I just used a simple plain pancake recipe from FoodNetwork.com found HERE.
Here is the recipe from Food Network Kitchen
-1 C flour
-1 Tbsp Sugar
-1tsp baking powder
-1/2tsp baking soda
-dash of salt
-1 C buttermilk
-3 Tbsp melted butter
Beat all ingredients together well. Heat up a skillet sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour small amounts of pancake batter into the pan at a time. I added sprinkles to each pancake. Add whatever fruit or toppings you would like! I chose strawberries and blueberries! Blueberries are my son’s absolute favorite so he of course picked all of those off right away! I think he would just continue to eat blueberries for as long as I gave them to him!
For the syrup I reduced pomegranate juice (bring to a simmer until it reaches a syrupy consistency) then added maple syrup for a pomegranate maple syrup. I had never tried this before (usually just stick to good ol’ maple syrup) but it was really delicious!
