If you could have one food supplied to you for life, what would it be? A constant supply of something. Would you pick donuts? Or bacon? Or Diet Coke?
No, I would not pick Nutella, surprisingly. I would choose… blackberries.
I’m obsessed. I just devoured half a container, slowly picking out the fattest, juiciest ones first.
I can just see myself now: living on an island, basking in the sun, with lots and lots of blackberries. Think of all the things I could do with them. Blackberry margaritas. Blackberry cobbler. Blackberry muffins. Blackberries in a spinach salad. Blackberriesblackberriesblackberries.
Or on a mountain, riding a horse and picking blackberries off the trail. Or in a mountain house, completely snowed in, with lots of blackberries in crates and containers. Ooh, blackberry cider? Is that a thing? We could make that a thing.
You know what is a thing? Blackberry pancakes. Don’t get too excited. These pancakes aren’t blackberry pancakes. I had blackberries but since I don’t have an endless supply, I didn’t share them with my family of friends on Sunday morning.
These pancakes are like an oatmeal cookie. They have a bit of crunch but the sweetness of cinnamon and they’re filling – in a good way. They were great for the cold grossness that is outside constantly. Okay, rain. It was nice seeing you. Thanks for watering the grass. Bye now!
