Author Notes

There is something always so special about a raspberry. They feel like such a treat to me even though we have our own bushes and eat them often. This is how I show off my beloved raspberry. Start with a sweet pancake, add the tang of goat cheese. Throw in some lemon and thyme. Fold in the egg whites. Finish with raspberries. You have a pancake that needs no syrup. This is the pancakes you make for your weekend guests to make them feel special. —MyCommunalTable

MyCommunalTable, I love goat cheese and was wondering if you have every tried making the pancakes with blueberries? The recipe looks delicious..
Thanks Slick

I have and it works really well. I like all berries with the tang of goat cheese. I have also done with feta, no berries,upped the thyme & lemon a bit, then topped it with yogurt and honey. Have fun with it. I can't wait to hear about it.

These look just delicious. I have a couple of raspberry fans here who also happen to be goat cheese fans. Must try these.

I am lucky about having our own bushes. I do not tend them well, so I have more every year. Teehee. They grow like crazy.

Sounds like a dream!

Thank you, nogaga.

YUM! Love all the supporting flavors you have here, while still allowing the raspberry to shine. My son could live on pancakes (he is three and eats like a kid three times his age when it comes to pancakes) and I'm looking forward to making these soon!

I love watching my children eat something I have made with such satisfaction. Hope your son enjoys. Thank you, gingeroot.

Sounds delicious, MCT! Love the mat (or is that a tablecloth) the plate is on..
MyCommunalTable July 6, 2011
It's a tablecloth that I had already on my table on my porch. When I walked out to get the picture, I was shocked it went so well. Thanks, lapadia
