Pancake Heaven

Remember those cherries I mentioned in my post about going to the farmer’s market?

Here’s what happened…

Cherry Vanilla Pancakes

This is a glorious combination. And again-reinforces my belief that is OK to have cake for breakfast…lunch…or dinner. I like to think that pancakes are a little healthier alternative…no frosting right? But the truth is…after drizzling the entire plate with melted butter and maple syrup, and a dusting of powdered sugar, I think it all adds up in the end. Oh well.  I’ll continue to love them anyhow.

I am not sure where I got the idea to toss some cherries and vanilla in my pancakes. It was probably because I will still dreaming of the cherry-vanilla cake I made last week. With that long gone and cherries on my counter, it just seemed like a grand idea. And it was. Oh, it was!

Look at those pockets of cherries and specks of vanilla…

If you have never made homemade pancakes before, you really should. They are easy and delicious.

Here (click) is my go-to recipe for pancakes.

To make these pancakes, I used the recipe above, then added 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste  (if you bake a lot I highly recommend buying) and tossed in some fresh, seeded/chopped cherries. Simple and delicious.

Have a great weekend!
