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
