Banana Mulberry Sourdough Pancakes

Banana Mulberry Sourdough Pancakes are super delicious. Pancakes made with sourdough have a nice tang and the bananas give the pancakes super flavor. If you don’t have or can’t find mulberries, you can substitute blackberries. Serve with maple syrup or make homemade mulberry-ginger syrup. Another option is to serve the pancakes with butter honey. Simple take softened butter and stir in a few tablespoons of honey.

What Are Mulberries?

There are three principle varieties of the mulberry, black, red and white. The black, really purplish-black variety is commonly found in Europe, the red in the eastern and southern United States and the white in Asia. Mulberries look somewhat like blackberries in size and shape. When fully ripe, mulberries are sweet-sour but bland. Unripe berries are very sour and do need the addition of sugar.

Mulberries aren’t commercially grown in the United States but grow wild from Massachusetts to the Gulf states and as far west as Nebraska. They can be eaten raw or used to make jams, jellies, desserts, pancakes, baked goods and wine. If you are lucky enough (like me) that knows someone with Mulberry trees in their yard, get out there and get yourself some. If not, check out Pick Your Own
