Cooking Light JULY 2007

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 hotcakes and about 1/4 cup sauce)

Ingredients

  • Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons seedless blackberry jam
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries
  • Hotcakes:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups nonfat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

To prepare sauce, combine the first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat, and stir with a whisk. Add grapes to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Stir in the blackberries. Remove from heat, and keep warm.

To prepare hotcakes, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine buttermilk and remaining ingredients except cooking spray; add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.

Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray. Cook 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges looked cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook for 2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Repeat procedure with remaining batter. Serve hotcakes with sauce.
