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! 

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. :/
