A twist on the traditional, our spiced pancakes with berries recipe is sure to be a hit with the whole family. There’s just enough “spicy” here for adults to love, yet not so much that will turn off the kids. And the sweet berries and a dollop of yogurt ensure a fun dish to eat. That’s said, if you’d like to turn up the heat some more, adding an extra bit of cayenne pepper powder will do the trick.
Adjust the milk as needed to create a thick, but smooth, batter. The required amount may vary depending on the size of your eggs, so keep that in mind. And remember: The key to a light and fluffy pancake is to keep mixing to a minimum. So once everything is combined, put the spoon down.
Frozen berries are the best option, as they warm well and are not too soft. If you want to use fresh berries, skip the cooking process and just toss them on top with some Greek yogurt. Either way, the results will be delicious!
