Ingredients: (Recipe yields about 6 servings)

For pancakes:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:

Macerated berries:

  1. Place berries in a small bowl.
  2. Add sugar and stir.
  3. Allow to sit for up to 30 minutes.
  4. The berries will soften and make a sauce.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, beer, and melted butter.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredient mixture and stir just until combined.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Once oil is hot, place 1/4 cup of batter in pan.
  6. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on one side (or until golden brown), flip and cook the other side for an additional 1 to 3 minutes.
  7. Serve with strawberry-blueberry sauce.

I can’t wait to make these pancakes this weekend! Plus, strawberries and blueberries are in season so I’m sure this will be more delicious than ever. If you’re interested in “cooking cheaply, eating well,” stop by Haley’s website, Cheap Recipe Blog.
