stack of jacks - holy cow its a pancake recipe

You see this - its a complicated link to a complicated process to vote for a cheese thing I made.
How do you look like a champion on a Sunday morning? A piled high stack of buttermilk, chia seed and blackberry pancakes certainly cant hurt.

Already delicious buttermilk pancakes get an extra burst and melt in your mouth softness from the addition of chia seeds, but throw in some blackberries and sweet all that is precious do you have yourself a gold medal winner.

cynthia: aw...I am so in love with you too - a trip to your lovely land would be such a delight....

the un: they are viscous in liquids but lacking in any real flavor...

Kristina @ spabettie said...

these look perfect. I have never thought to add chia seeds to pancakes - you, sir, are genius!

I do, however, always make warm butter + maple syrup... YUM !

We use the same tried and true pancake recipe here at home, varying just the things we decide to add in (blueberries, raspberries, chocolate chips, etc...) have never tried chia seeds-thanks for the inspiration!

pinknest said...

I like my pancakes with blueberries! And stacked high. With Grade B maple syrup. And butter. And oh yeah, more pancakes.

Doc said...

Nice addition with the chia seeds. I have not used them much. Good luck with the contest; you have my votes if you need them.

Nutmeg Nanny said...

These look amazing! Wanna go for a little trip the Hudson Valley and make them for me..... ;)

meltingbutter.com said...

These look great! I do a similar recipe with blueberries and buttermilk.. I also whisk egg whites so the pancakes stay nice, thick and fluffy :)

Jamie said...

Fabulous! Wow! These make my old flat pancakes look like, well, old, flat, boring pancakes. Son is home for 3 weeks and he's the pancake freak so there you go - will try these for him!

briarrose said...

Nothing better than a giant stack of pancakes. ;)

Marjie said...

I used to make pancakes for my entire family every Sunday morning. I made about 100. I never got to eat with everyone else.

Count me as another who's completely unfamiliar with chia seeds. Do they have anything to do with chia pets?

shannon abdollmohammadi said...

i think i might have to triple triple double this!! LOL. Great pic and congrats on making foodbuzzz top 9!

Vickie said...
