Servings 4 pancakes

Ingredients
  

Pancakes

  • 1 cup Pancake mix
  • 2/3 cup water
  • red food coloring

Syrup

  • 1/3 cup Strawberry Jam
  • 1/3 cup Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries

Instructions
 

Pancakes

  • Combine pancake mix with water and stir to combine, add in food coloring until you get the color you desire.
  • Heat frying pan or griddle over medium heat. You know it's ready when you drop a droplet of water onto the pan and it sizzles.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto pan, when batter in pan has lots of little bubbles flip the pancake. Allow other side to cook for another minute or two and remove pancake from pan.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.

Syrup

  • Heat Strawberry Jam over low heat in a small sauce pan until smooth. Add in syrup and blueberries and heat through.

Any basic pancake mix is easily embellished with a bit of food coloring. For even more flavor, you could mix in some chopped strawberries. We didn't have any on hand so I didn't do it this time, but I know it would be a tasty addition!

A dollop of whipped cream is the perfect finish!
