Mixed Berry Pancakes

Not to be confused with Larry's Sunday Buckwheat Pancakes, these yummy little suckers have the berries built in! (there are actually two pancakes in this photo - in case anyone was wondering...)

Blueberry Corn Pancakes
Adapted from Veganomicon
makes 8-10 pancakes

3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons canola oil (I left it out for a lower-fat version and they were fine)
1-1/4 cup plain soy milk (I used vanilla - yum!)
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (optional - but only because I didn't have any!)

1 cup fresh berries (I used blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries)
canola (or some other light oil) cooking spray

Sift together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl, add them to the dry until combined and fold in the berries.  A couple of lumps are fine. Overmixing yields tougher pancakes.

Preheat a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Spray pan with cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan. Cook till bubbly and brown on bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned. Pancakes should be firm but not hard.

Top with fresh berries, bananas, powdered sugar, nuts or whatever your little hearts desire.


  1. Love all of those juicy berries in there. This looks very delicious!

  2. Yum yum yum! I love fresh berries in any dish, especially for breakfast to start the day off right! These look delicious and pretty dang healthy too - thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. Oh wow...these look like a muffin had a baby with a pancake! Yum! All of those delicious berries throughout the pancake which looks incredibly light...I want some!

  4. OMG that is HILARIOUS Amy!! You are so right! In the interest of truth in advertising, there are actually two pancakes in the picture =)

  5. these look delish!!! my mini is turning 6 today and so she wants pancakes for dinner. thank you for the wonderful recipe. can't wait to try it <3

  6. This looks delicious! I have Veganomicon but I haven't tried these. Love your blog!!


  7. Hey Anastasia - hope your mini enjoyed them!

    Definitely try these Koko - they are delish! And I just did the banana-nut waffles too. If you make those let me know - I followed the recipe and my batter came out a bit too thick. Wondering if I just overmixed or if quantities are a little off. But if these two are any indication, Veganomicon rocks!

    Thanks for reading girls =)

  8. My mouth is watering!!! lol Do you think rice milk is ok to use? Ty!

  9. Yes! I'm sure it's fine to use rice milk. I actually prefer nut mill over soy so I'm going to try that as well. Let me know how it goes for you =)


Yaaaay! I love comments =)
