Blueberries are typically the fruit of choice when adding fruit to pancake batter.  However, today I had some Freeze Dried Apricots on hand so I tried them out.  Super delicious!  Honeyville’s Buttermilk Pancake mix is so versatile-it is great as is or one can add in things and it performs awesome too!

Apricot Pancakes
1 cup Water
3/4 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Apricots
1 cup Honeyville Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix

In a bowl combine water and apricots.  Let sit 1 minute to allow apricots to rehydrate.  Do NOT drain the water.  Add the pancake mix and stir until fairly smooth.  The batter will have some lumps from the apricots and mix.  Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto a greased, preheated griddle (about 375 degrees).  Cook pancakes until bubbles appear on the top and the edges have a dry appearance; about one minute, turn just once and cook for one more minute.

I topped my stack of pancakes with more apricots that I had hydrated while the pancakes cooked and a drizzle of maple syrup and some whipped cream.  Not everyday do I put whipped cream on my pancakes but we had some leftover from Mother’s Day and I can’t waste it right?!  I think some yogurt on top or some flavored honey would be dynamite as well.

What is your favorite fruit and pancake combo?
