  • Be sure to select a pancake mix with no additional ingredients to avoid a bitter taste.
  • Look for boysenberries that are dark purple in color for the best flavor.

  • Substitute almond milk for buttermilk: Almond milk is a great alternative for those who are looking for a dairy-free option. It is also lower in calories and fat than traditional buttermilk.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter: Coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter because it is high in healthy fats and has antimicrobial properties. It also adds a subtle coconut flavor to the pancakes.

Blueberry Topping Replace the boysenberries with 2 cups of fresh blueberries and follow the same instructions for the topping.

Scrambled Eggs with Bacon: Scrambled eggs with bacon is a classic breakfast combination that pairs perfectly with Peggy Lee's Pancakes with Boysenberry Topping. The salty bacon complements the sweet topping, making it a great side dish to this delicious breakfast treat.

Fun facts:

Famous singer Peggy Lee wrote the song "Fever" in 1958 and was also a fan of boysenberries. She was known to make her own boysenberry pancakes for her youngest son.

In the late 1800s, the boysenberry was created by Rudolph Boysen, a horticulturist from California. The berry was a cross between a raspberry, blackberry, and loganberry and is now a popular topping for desserts and pancakes.
