Raspberr-Wee Pancakes


This is a really special week for us because it's my hubby's birthday AND Valentine's Day. To celebrate, I wanted to come up with a recipe that Kenya and I could make together to both impress Daddy and be enjoyed by the whole family. Although it would be so much easier to break out a huge box of chocolates or cupcakes to celebrate, these Raspberry Pancakes seemed like a much more healthy and festive choice.

To get our ingredients, we went to our local farmer's market where Kenya was so excited to be tasked with picking out a few baskets of fresh red raspberries especially for Daddy. It let him take ownership over the process right then and there. Then, we went home to test the recipe, pulling out heart shape cookie cutters, placing them in the pan, filling them with batter and berries and then cooking them up. Cooking with your kids is always a priceless experience, but doing it for a holiday or special occasion makes it all the more special. Suffice to say, the pancakes went over big with Daddy (which is a good thing since he's getting them again on the 14th)!. I think you will agree that this is the kind of recipe will say, "I love you" all over your loved one's face.

Raspberr-Wee Pancakes (makes 4-6 servings)

Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 10 mins

nut free


  • 1 1/3 Cup all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 Tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted (plus more for cooking)
  • 1 1/4 Cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 Tbsp agave
  • 6 Oz Package Raspberries (almost 1 cup)


1. Whisk the first 3 ingredients in a bowl.

2. In a separate bowl combine the butter, buttermilk, eggs and agave until combined.

3. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined (it’s ok if there are a few lumps).

4. Heat a large pan or griddle on medium heat and grease with butter.

5. Pour about 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture onto the griddle and top with 3-4 raspberries (if using cookie cutters, place the cookie cutter in the pan after step 4, pour in several tablespoons of batter, add the raspberries and cook as directed in step 6).

6. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.

7. Serve

* You can keep pancakes warm on a sheet tray in a 250 degree oven until all the pancakes are cooked.

* I also tested this batter in a waffle iron and they came out gorgeous, crispy and fluffy!

**Allow to cool and place in a ziploc bag, label and freeze up to 4 months. When ready, place in toaster over or oven at 300 for 10 minutes or until heated through.

    Wow -- these look fabulous! Raspberries are my favorite, and I just bought some (though they're frozen, since we can't get good, inexpensive fresh ones this time of year)to test out in different smoothies etc. for my little guys. I'm definitely making these this weekend! It will be my 10 month old's first introduction to raspberries. Can't wait to see how he likes this!

    Hi Catherine, I tried to made these yesterday and although delicious I couldn't get the cookie cutter idea to work. I poured the batter into the cookie cutter in the pan (I even greased the cookie cutter just in case) but could never get the pancake out of it afterwards. The whole things fell apart. How did you do it? Thanks!

      You have to grease the cookie cutter really well and also cook it till it is almost done. Use a knife to cut around the edges to get it out and then flip it over to finish cooking. Are you using steel cookie cutters?

    I love your website! I have a toddler and have a hard time thinking of different foods. I'm not creative and our meals get boring. My husband and step daughter have kidney disease and we have to eat very low sodium meals. I am so happy to find your recipes and I just omit the salt! My step daughter LOVED the pancakes especially since she can have as many as she wants! Thanks

      I didn't have breakfast! Crap! Now I'm hurgny. My pancakes are somewhere in between those two. A small pat of butter on each one and sugar free butter flavored syrup generously poured on. Are those your pictures? They are great...

    when you say \"agave\" in the recipe, do you mean agave syrup?

    • Catherine

      Yes! Agave syrup, agave nectar! You can also substitute honey!

    by far my fav pancake recipe. Didn't use a cookie cutter just poured regular shapes. They taste delicious! Used honey in place of agave, blueberries instead of raspberries and left some plain. Will try them in our waffle maker next time. Thank you!!!
