The perfect pancakes for July 4th or Memorial Day or Labor Day! Hey even flag day or any day your feeling patriotic. You could eat them on Bastille Day too! and don’t forget National Strawberry Day (February 27th) or National Blueberry Pancake Day (January 28th).
I think you get the point.
But actually can someone tell me why national strawberry day and national blueberry pancake day are during the winter! that makes no sense! But hey mark your calendar now because don’t you just hate when you look on instagram and its national “insert food day” and you’re like ugh I don’t have that food at home.. do i have time to run to the store to buy it and make something and then take a picture before the day is over?!! I know I am not the only one…right!
I used buttermilk in these pancakes because I had plenty left over from this Apricot Galette recipe from last week. If you don’t have any buttermilk you can also make my Raspberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes from Valentine’s Day. (I guess i like to celebrate national holiday’s with pancakes!) Just swap strawberries and blueberries for raspberry and white chocolate chips for chocolate chips. Just be careful about how many white chocolate chips you use because they are very sweet. Too many white chocolate chips will ruin your pancakes.
so without further ado… here’s the recipe!
