Two Peas and Their Pod

Whole Wheat Raspberry & Mango Pancakes

It is a whirlwhind week for us. We got back from Illinois last night and picked up our dear friend Helene (Tartelette) at the airport. She is teaching a food photography and food styling workshop in Salt Lake City today. I am so excited! Tomorrow we are going to the EVO Conference in Park City. It is a busy week, but a fun one. I don’t even have to unpack from our trip:) Last week, before our travel madness began, Josh woke up early and made me Whole Wheat Raspberry & Mango Pancakes for breakfast. It was a nice and tasty surprise.

I haven’t had that many weird cravings during my pregnancy, but I have been enjoying pancakes on a regular basis. They always taste good to me. Josh knows whole wheat pancakes are my favorite, so he whipped up a basic whole wheat buttermilk pancake base. He then added plump raspberries and juicy mango chunks to the pancake batter. Great move on his part. The fruit really made these pancakes special.

Josh walked into our bedroom with a plate of steaming hot pancakes and I immediately woke up with a smile. He served the pancakes with a little maple syrup and extra raspberries and mango chunks. I devoured the pancakes. Josh did a fantastic job. It was nice being pampered with a special breakfast in bed. I really have the best husband.

This week is going to be crazy busy for us, but as soon as life calms down, I am requesting Whole Wheat Rapsberry & Mango Pancakes. I can’t wait to eat these again! They were exceptional!

If you are going to be at the EVO Conference, make sure you say hello! You can’t miss the baby bump:)

Whole Wheat Raspberry & Mango Pancakes

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk, plus 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1/2 cup freshly chopped mango
Maple syrup and extra fruit, for serving-optional

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

2. In a large glass measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, canola oil, egg , and vanilla extract.

3. Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Whisk until combined. Don't over mix. Gently fold in the raspberries and mango chunks.

4. Heat a griddle pan or non stick skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 of a cup of pancake batter onto the hot griddle pan, spacing out the pancakes a few inches from each other. When the pancakes start to bubble up, flip and cook until pancakes are lightly browned.

5. Serve pancakes warm with maple syrup and extra raspberries and mango chunks, if desired.

    When they are packed with goodness like that, no syrup necessary. I’ve got to turn my kids into hot fruit lovers.

    So you are friends with Helene huh? I swear I’m more star struck by food bloggers than any hollywood “A” lister! I just found out from my friends the Terry’s that they know you…I know someone, that knows someone famous…How lame am I that I think that is so COOL!

      Yes, we know the Terry’s. They are great! And I am not famous:) It’s a small world!

    I am really interested in this combo!! I bought a bunch of Mangos at the farmers market this weekend because they were 3 for $1! …Can’t wait to give this a try!

    Urban Wife — July 6, 2011 @ 2:26 pm

    Now I wish I wouldn’t have frozen all those mangos I had going bad! Might just have to defrost them sooner than I thought and hope that doesn’t ruin this delicious recipe. Have a wonderful time at EVO. :)

    Yum, what a great combination – two of my favorite fruits! Maybe I can talk my hubs into making these for me this weekend :)

    These look yummy! I can’t wait to see you this week at EVO!

    I’ve been all about pancakes lately, and these look amazing! I always use whole wheat pastry flour, so it’s good to know that regular whole wheat flour works as well. Raspberries and mango go so well together, so these will definitely be made :).

    Yaaay Josh! Major brownie points for him. I love this mango-raspberry combo. Sounds delicious! Pancakes always sound good to me, too. Don’t forget the baking powder in your pancakes! I did that last week and they turned out rubbery and weird.

    How sweet – breakfast in bed AND with delicious pancakes! He is a definite keeper, and you definitely deserve to be pampered during your pregnancy.
    Funny seeing this post this morning because I had a craving for pancakes when I woke up. Seriously have to do something about that now.
