Real Life Breakfast (Buttermilk Banana Berry Pancakes)

23 Jul


Fact: I have a lot on my plate.

Fact: I’ve been working a lot

Fact: Baking yummy goodness is on the back burner. Heck….cleaning my apartment is on the back burner.

Fact: I also have no air conditioning in my apartment. No fun.

These aren’t excuses for no blog posts….merely facts. Straight, hard facts.

I’ve made it out into the backyard to pick some golden and red raspberries…that’s a good thing.

I’ve been checking on my carrots, they’re doing swell thanks for asking.

This morning I had 10 minutes to make and eat breakfast. All I had were two brown bananas.

Sooooo….I made some buttermilk banana berry pancakes. Don’t get too excited. This is a real life breakfast remember. I had 10 minutes.

Thank goodness for my pre-mixed pancake mix. I keep it for times like this, where all you have to do is add an egg, some buttermilk, banana if you wish, and some vanilla and you’re all set to make pancakes.

Before I knew it, the pancakes were in the pan

I tossed in frozen blueberries AND mulberries….no time to choose!

No time to wash my handies either….darned mulberries

Onto my plate….no time to make it look nice. Time enough to burn it slightly though…my bad…

Breakfast. Real life. It ain’t pretty sometimes, but damn, you can still have some tasty pancakes.

Buttermilk Pancake Mix

(Makes lots…lasts you long time)

5 cups all purpose flour (sub in other flours if you wish)

1 cup quick rolled oats

2 tbsp baking powder

2 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

To make pancakes, I usually mix together 1 egg, 1 banana, 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1/4 cup milk and vanilla. This should give you around 4 generous sized pancakes. Just make the wet mix, and whisk in enough of the dry mix until the mixture is the right consistency….then pop in a pan, top with your flavour of choice, and bon appetit!
