Blackberry Orange Pancakes

whole wheat pastry flour and orange zest

Good morning! I hope you all have been well during my impromptu blogging hiatus. Over the past week and a half, I have taken spring cleaning to a new level. I quite literally cleaned, dusted and decluttered every crevice in my apartment. Only my closet (ouch) remains. The clean and purge process has been cathartic; I feel at peace in my surroundings.

On Sunday, I cooked a batch of pancakes to sustain me through an afternoon of deep cleaning. They were based off of Joy the Baker’s recipe for Berry Meyer Lemon Pancakes, except I traded whole wheat pastry flour for regular flour. I also used thawed, frozen blackberries and orange zest instead of raspberries and lemon.

The result? Delicious, of course, but I can’t decide if I prefer raspberry and lemon or blackberries and orange.

Which do you prefer: blackberry and orange, or raspberry and lemon? What’s your favorite pairing of citrus and berry?

    If you don’t mind, I’d prefer some of each! Though I do have a soft spot for lime with both blackberry and raspberry. You should try sometime, maybe with a sprinkling of unsweetened coconut in the batter as well! We made a blackberry lime sorbet last year — ooooh so good.

    Cheers and best wishes on the closet,

    Mmm… pancakes are my very favorite morning treat, especially when they have blackberries in them. I must say though, I am a sucker for the classic raspberry-lemon combo. It’s just too irresistible!

    I’m late to this post, but I think your pancakes are gorgeous. I think I’d prefer blackberry orange to rasberry lemon. I just love citrus in baked goods, and every morning for breakfast I require at least one orange.
    Your blog is beautiful. I love your photos, they’re all so full of light!
