Today is the last day of summer.  I cannot say that I’m sad to see it go.  Here in Northern California, summer is VERY hot, and I’m  not a big fan.   Sure spending the afternoon at the pool or the lake is a  lot of fun, but sunny and 70 is my idea of perfect.

AND… I love wearing sweaters.

Fall cannot get here fast enough for me. To celebrate the ending of summer we made raspberry sauce with  our last few berries.  This is hands down Stella’s favorite food on the planet.  She would eat anything if is was covered in raspberry sauce. Usually, we just use it for a topping, but today I got a  little fancy, and added the sauce to the pancakes while they were on the griddle.

Raspberry Swirl Buttermilk Pancakes


  • Raspberry Sauce:
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups of raspberries
  • 1/2 - 3/4 sugar
  • combine the berries and the sugar in a medium sized saucepan
  • bring to a boil, reduce the heat, stirring often and simmer until thick {about 5 minutes}
  • Buttermilk Pancakes:
  • 1 cup flour {I used 1/2 AP and 1/2 whole wheat}
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon {optional}
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp melted butter


  • whisk together the dry ingredients
  • in another bowl whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla, and butter
  • pour the liquid over the dry ingredients
  • lightly whisk just until everything is just combines {it will be a bit lumpy}
  • if needed lightly oil/butter your griddle
  • heat to 350
  • put the raspberry sauce into a pastry bag with a tip {or use a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off}
  • spoon batter on the heated griddle
  • pipe a swirl of raspberry into the middle of each pancake
  • when the edges begin to cook and the top is "bubbled' flip and cook the other side until golden brown
  • serve with extra sauce, powdered sugar, or maple syrup


The taste is pretty much the same, but sometimes it’s just fun to play with your food.
