Star Fruit Buttermilk Pancakes - Florida Living at it's Finest!


RECIPE BUTTERMILK PANCAKES - Combine the Following ingredients in a large bowl: 1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour, 1/4 c. sugar, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 c. buttermilk, 2 large eggs, beaten, 1/4 c. butter, melted, plus more for brushing the heated griddle,1 tsp. pure vanilla extract - while cooking add sliced star fruit - serve with heated maple syrup, more sliced star fruit, and butter if desired! I heat my plates in a 200 degree oven and keep the pancakes already cooked warm while I cook the rest.

Cook on medium heated griddle
which has been brushed with oil or butter,
 place sliced star fruit into batter
Turn over Star Fruit Slices so they are covered with a little batter. This makes it cook well when you turn over the pancakes and they won't stick to the pan

Serve in a heated platter with plenty of butter, heated maple syrup, and sliced star fruit

 still yummy!

Hey, maybe one or two of them got a little overdone, they were still delicious and a great way to use up all the Star Fruit I have inherited from a neighbor's tree while visiting in Florida this winter! 

Buttermilk Pancakes are a good choice for this because they are very fluffy and can hold up the fruit well!

Happy Holidays and Peace on Earth,
