Cherry Almond Pancakes

After a long and tiring quest home from Europe, all we wanted was some really good, American-style breakfast. As cherries are absolutely beautiful this time of year, I decided to make cherry almond pancakes.

Cherry almond Pancakes

Cherry Almond Pancakes
Makes 6 small pancakes and about 2 cups of sauce
For the sauce:
3 cups cherry halves
1-2 tablespoons sugar
1-2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon almond extract

Place all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until the cherries are softened, but not mushy. Serve hot.

For the pancakes:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg

Whisk together all of the pancake ingredients until blended. Preheat a pan or an electric griddle to 375 F (medium to medium high heat). Grease the pan with butter. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of the batter into the pan. Cook until the edges of the pancakes are dry and bubbles appear on the surface. Turn; cook until golden. Serve hot with the hot cherry topping. Enjoy!
