Seizing the opportunity that everyone was home together my little sis decided to throw her girls’ birthday party during our time together. What I thought was a brilliant idea is she planned a breakfast birthday party. A stress free event counting the 9 kids at the house, this worked perfectly. No getting dressed, pajamas were a must, no rushing out the door, no public place filled with strangers and for sleepy eyed adults a steady stream from fresh pots of strong brewed coffee were on-hand. The menu was kid- friendly “pancakes” fruit filled pancakes topped with even more fruit and warm syrup. For the adults steamy tacos filled with home-made barbacoa and spiked with fiery salsas. Everyone sat around the table eating, talking, laughing, being loud…we like loud and simply enjoying each other’s company. At first we thought we would have trouble waking up the kids, but with the wonderful smell of pancakes filling my mom’s tiny kitchen, soon all kids were circling the table. I have to admit, I believe the adults enjoyed the party even more than the kiddos. All of us sitting at the table together with mom and dad gave us a moment to relive our childhood and if that doesn’t make the pancakes taste even sweeter, the syrupy thank you kisses that followed from newly opened birthday presents really topped it off. I leave you with a sweet blackberry buttermilk pancake recipe to enjoy on your weekend. May you have a wonderful weekend and take time to enjoy pancakes….. Love Sweet Life!
Feel free to add the fruit of your choice, if using frozen let the fruit thaw and strain the liquid you don’t want overly soggy pancakes. Enjoy.

Mmm! Sounds like such a sweet family gathering, and pancakes are always an excellent idea =). They look delectable!
Ah, one of the best ways to serve up berries on the morning, by far! Your pancakes look so perfectly light and fluffy, I wouldn’t be able to resist piling up a serious stack of them, any time of day. Maybe I should have pancake breakfasts more often…
oooo, your pancakes look like a mountain of goodness in that first photograph. I especially like the little squidgy bits of berries in there ;] Squidgy, squidgy…I like that word, ahah. And congrats on your first guest post!
Those pancakes look wonderful! What a great combo!

A breakfast party is such a great idea! I like the no rushing part which is always so good when you have a group of people. The pancakes look wonderful!
This is what I need to wake up to, tomorrow. That isn’t going to happen but I could make them and everyone will be happy. Thanks.
Baking Serendipity says
A birthday breakfast party is genius! These blackberry pancakes make the perfect addition!
Oh, how beautiful! I would love to make these, but I’m afraid to because when I make pancakes with such delectable ingredients such as your recipe calls for, I eat the whole batch. Whoops. 😉
there is nothing better than the buttermilk flavor in pancakes – sounds like you enjoyed the visit and time with the family, glad for you…take care and have a blessed Sunday
Wow, if the picture of those incredible pancakes was not enough to knock my socks off, I don’t know what is. I love the sound of that birthday party – time with family and friends is what makes life worth living and to celebrate an event and each others company – it just does not get much better than that!
What a treat, and I’ll be trying your pancake recipe soon.
Oooh. I haven’t made pancakes in a long time (more of a french toast girl), but these look awesome!
Chef Dennis says
Blackberry pancakes sound almost decadent….wow….I love blueberry, but now do have to try them with blackberries, perhaps some whipped cream would be in order too!
thanks for sharing this wonderful treat with us!
I just had cornflakes for breakfast. I would have loved buttermilk pancakes, instead… Happy birthday to the birthday girl!
5 Star Foodie says
Wow, those pancakes are picture perfect! So wonderful with blackberries!
Oh Bonnie! These look fluffy and lovely. I wish I would wake up one day and have these already made for me (smile) with a big cup of coffee-that would be nice…
Glad the grown ups had fun at the party too. We need that sometimes, you know;)?
p.s. My mom just bought a case of organic blackberries. So I’m probably going to try this recipe with my whole grain flours in the morning! I adjust for wheatiness, so I don’t mess things up.
Berry pancakes…breakfast party…and family sharing the feast with you…what more can a girl ask for ;o)
Thanks for sharing your hearthy recipe…the photo makes them look incredibly scrumptious.
Ciao for now and flavourful wishes,
Belinda @zomppa says
Nice way to wake up. That photo looks like the heavens!
What a wonderful idea for a child’s birthday party! I don’t know if anything sounds better than pj’s, presents and pancakes! Thank you for sharing these fluffy creations!
Sommer @ A Spicy Perspective says
Oh, that sounds wonderful…the pancakes and the party! Somehow my kids parties are NEVER stress-free. I’ll have to give both ideas a try!
That does sound like stress free birthday party. And great idea to do breakfast party. Why did I not think of it last week. Even though i had adults for party, this would have been better. But I can’t wait to make my pancakes. Yummy.
Blond Duck says
Can I have pancakes and tacos?
Buttermilk pancakes are my absolute favorite.
Heavenly Housewife says
