Pancakes with Blackberry Syrup

Last Saturday I told you how Saturday is our pancake day...well this week I decided to get a little fancy when it came to our homemade syrup. We tried blackberry syrup and it was well received by those red heads.Oh and did I mention it is quick to make? Always a requirement right? Just wash your berries, process in a blender, heat with 2-3 tablespoons of water on your stove, and simmer for a few minutes. I let my syrup simmer, while I made my pancakes. This is a perfect breakfast, when Saturday morning cartoons are being watch. We are big on Saturday morning cartoons. I think my hubby and I reminisce too much on our Saturdays. We talk about when we watched GI Joe and Jem. Anyone remember Jem? She was awesome with her pink hair and star earrings. Anyways make some pancakes for your cute family today. Everyone deserves a Saturday morning pancake feast:) In fact.....I am off to make some right now.....


Blackberry Syrup 

6 oz. Of blackberries 
1/4 cup sugar 
2-3 tbl. Water 

Puree washed blackberries in blender/food processor. Add 2-3 tbl of water to thin out the puree. Add sugar and heat to a simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes and serve. I used my ready-made pancake mix

  1. Found your blog from a google article--here's my favorite pancake recipe (Walnuts optional, of course, but they are so healthy!)

    I made my own blackberry jelly a few years ago and used it on pancakes! Will read through your blog to see if you also garden. I just found an article that mentioned you can regrow green onions and celery in a bright window!

  2. Jem is truly outrageous!

    The syrup sounds yummy and easy.

  3. Truly, truly, truly outrageous! Your blog is such an inspiration. My family is about to be in the same boat- hubs is getting ready to leave the Marines and head back to school while I stay home with the littles. Thank you so much for all the helpful hints. You make living on a budget seem like a fun little project.

  5. Yum, this sounds delicious! I love blackberries.

  6. I've been looking for good recipes to use up my summer-picked blackberries and black raspberries. I'm totally going to try this. I bet it would be good on ice cream too.

    1. We are heating up the leftover syrup (Im amazed we even had some left) and putting it over vanilla ice cream tonight :)

  7. I made this recipe w/blueberries yesterday for our protein pancakes... fabulous!!! Thanks Danielle so much for sharing w/our family!

  8. OMG thank you for posting this!!!!!! I made some tonight with fresh raspberries and we are all in HEAVEN! Have you tried this with frozen fruit? Im thinking it maybe be less expensive for my family to buy frozen and thaw them to use.... may not need to add much extra water. But curious if you or anyone else has tried it this way.
