Cherry Pancakes

Before we moved away from the cherry capitol of the world, we gave the traditional cherry pancakes a try! 
I don't know why we waited so long because these were wonderful.  We used sweet cherries, but I bet tart cherries would be wonderful too!  


Cherry Pancakes - Finding Joy in My Kitchen
{Print Recipe}

1 egg
1/4 C sugar or honey
1/6 C applesauce
1/8 tsp. salt
2 C buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 C white whole wheat flour
1 C diced, pitted cherries

Begin by combining the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Mix together the egg, applesauce, honey and buttermilk.

Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry ones.

Stir until just moist.

Gently stir in the diced cherries.

Scoop onto a griddle heated to 350.

 Cook until little bubbles form; then flip!

Enjoy warm.

We served them with a sprinkle of cinnamon.  YUM!

  1. The pancakes look wonderful! I have some sour cherries in the freezer and will have to give that a try. Thanks for sharing.

    p.s. Your new home looks wonderful and you seem to be getting everything in it's place rather quickly. Your kitchen is laid out very much like mine, except for the pantry to the right of the fridge. What I would give for that! It all looks lovely.

  2. I've had strawberry pancakes and I've had blueberry pancakes, but I've never had cherry pancakes! Can you believe that? These look incredible!!

  3. Oh, this looks delicious! Cherries are my favorite and I can't believe I've never added them to pancakes. Your pancakes sound great and a yummy way for the cherries. It must be "cherry day" because I posted cherry jam. Thanks for this great post. I will be trying it!

  4. I'm seeing cherries everywhere today!! These look so good! Love cherrys, never thought to put the in pancakes before! Thanks!

  5. A very nice twist on pancakes, I bet they are yum!

  8. My husband loves cherries. I will have to make him these pancakes some weekend soon.

  9. I love blueberry pancakes, these have to be just as good, if not better.

    Hopefully you're getting setted in your new home.

    Hey, could you email me at meg@morningcupwithmeg.com so I can send you your Shutterfly promo code? I thought I had your email address but I can't find it!


  13. Yes, but have you tried cherries in an omelette? Quite delicious, indeed!

  14. Have you only tried these with fresh cherries? What about canned ones?

  15. @ Martha,

    I've only used fresh in this recipe -- but I would think canned would work, if you drain the juice off them. I don't know how the pie-filling cherries would work in this recipe, but I think any "fresh" cherries, whether canned or fresh would work. Dried might even work too. Let me know if you try it!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
