Ingredients

  • 2/3  Cups  water or milk
  • 1  Tablespoon  canola oil, preferably expeller-pressed, plus more for cooking the pancakes
  • large egg (optional)
  • 1  Cup  100-percent whole-wheat pancake and waffle mix
  • 1/4  Pound  cherries, pitted and cut into quarters (about 2/3 cup)

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk together the water or milk, oil, and egg, if using. In a larger bowl, stir the liquid mixture into the pancake mix (you'll have about 1 cup batter). Stir in the cherries until evenly distributed. If making a larger batch, add 2/3 cup cherries for each additional cup of batter.

Grease a cast-iron griddle or large nonstick skillet with canola oil and heat over medium heat until hot. Working in batches, ladle ¼ cup batter onto the griddle and cook until the bottoms are golden, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until the pancakes are cooked through, 1-2 more minutes.

Cherry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cherry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
