raspberry pancakes

I had some raspberries that needed using up so i added them to a regular pancake mix. Raspberries are something i just can't eat on their own - too sour! I tried giving them Jo [my 6 month old] and his scrunched up his face from the sour-ness! and this was even with it mixed with mashed banana. well I made him eat it anyway - i wanted him to have the vitamin C. 
Mixed in with pancake batter, they looked a nice pink hue.

after flipping over


.
wonder why the first few ones never look as good as the subsequent pancakes. 
anyway, they were lovely with maple syrup and cream! 


recipe:
whisk together 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, a pinch of salt, a tsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla essence, 1 egg and 2 tsp baking powder, then add some [maybe a cup? i didn't measure, just eyeball it] raspberries [or any berries really] and keep whisking until smooth. spray a nonstick pan with oil, heat to medium hot and ladle the batter  in whatever size you like. flip over when bubbles appear on the surface, cook a further 2-3 minutes depending on the size of your pancakes. 
serve with maple syrup or ice cream or cream or honey or icing sugar.

Coincidentally Jo has been making pancakes, n Nel scones. Hehe...but I never though of missing stuff into the batter. You think I could add avocado into it? They hate avocado. :/
