POM & Cherry Pancakes

This past Sunday for breakfast I decided to make pancakes. But not any regular pancakes.

First, I must confess to using a pancake mix. It's just convenient, fast, and only requires you to add water.
Speaking of water, this time around, I decided to use POM juice instead! This idea just came to me a few days earlier: I thought that not only would the pancakes be a pretty pink color (LOVE pink!), but they'll also have a great sweet/sour taste to them.

Not wanting to stop at just adding POM juice, I also added chopped dried cherries.

Other than that, follow directions on the box or however else you make pancakes.










Unfortunately, once cooked, the pancakes lost the pretty pink color, but they still tasted great. You can see my latest purchase in the background: a miniature glass pitcher.



Serve the pancakes with maple syrup to offset the slightly sour taste of POM.

Just think of the possibilities! Next time you are making pancakes, try adding orange or apple juice, or grape juice, or cranberry juice!!

Great idea to add the pom juice, but wouldn't it have been fantastic if the pancakes had come out pink too! lol... imagine the look of surprise if you would serve people a pink pancake!

The pancakes look amazing! I'm always on the venture to try new recipes, and I've never thought to include cherries in pancakes. Brilliant! I actually work with Del Monte so you think I'd be including fruit with everything haha. If you're wanting to expand your desserts as well, look out for Fruit Chillers. They're a new frozen treat that's packed with real fruit and makes for great desserts (like frozen yogurt!). If you visit our website you can browse through recipes and grab some coupons as well :)
