  • Anyone ever make the 'Berry pancake' recipe from the cookbook?

    I tried it today, making it just as the directions say and the berries burnt! Has anyone else made this recipe? What did I do wrong?

    I've made it and it was delicious... turn your heat down on the berries and cook them slower.

      I've learned this recently with a lot of recipes. My very non-Primal mom was here a few weeks ago and cooked all my recipes exactly as I created them, except she did everything low and slow. The difference was night and day deliciousness.
      Low and slow, baby, low and slow.

        Thank you. I used the heat settings recommended in the book, but they were obviously too high. I also made the Pizza Frittata today and that too was burnt, way too high. From now on, low and slow.

          When you make this, do you put the berries in the pan whole or do you chop them up?

            I know you're not asking me, but if it were me, I would ninja them in my ninja. Wha-cha! *karate chop*

              I made it this weekend - tasted good - but it was a huge mess! I think my berries must've been juicier than the test kitchen berries!
              Next time, I will strain and reserve the extra juice to pour over AFTER making the flip!

                Sometimes stoves & ovens run a little hot. It's all a matter of getting used to your equipment. I can follow the exact same recipe at my house versus my parents, and get totally different results just because of the oven.

                  I found that you must use a 10" pan, and I add an extra blob of butter and sometimes a 1/4 cup more berries... I also cook the berries on medium low rather than medium. My kids absolutely LOVE this recipe, they ask for it a couple times a week at least!

                    blueberries whole, raspberries whole, but I chop up strawberries - works great with frozen mixed berries too!

                      I made this on Saturday using frozen raspberries. It was delicious and didn't burn.

                        Totally! I used wild huckleberries and they got crispy and made the whole thing nearly inedible. I only ate it because I was starving!

                        I figured next time I would barely cook the berries before pouring the egg stuff on top and throwing in the oven. They just don't need that much cooking. Good luck!

                          Made it today for lunch. It was very good. If your berries burnt, I think the butter might have got too hot (butter does burn easily in a frying pan). Maybe try a lower heat?
                          We ate it with whipped cream. Yum.
