If you're planning to wake Mom up with something special yet easy for Mother's Day, make this pancake for brunch. Instead of standing at the stove flipping a bunch of smaller pancakes, you stir together a simple batter, drop berries over it, and stick the pan in the oven to bake. The pancake is moist and tender, and insanely good with the strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries -- topped with maple syrup, of course. One of these will feed three or four people, with some bacon or scrambled eggs on the side. If you're feeding a crowd, double the recipe and bake them in two pans at the same time.
I adapted this recipe to use self-rising flour for two reasons: I ran out of all-purpose flour, and I can't find enough uses for my self-rising flour. I've included directions for using either in the recipe below. I recently traveled to see my mom and won't be seeing her this Sunday, but I can't help thinking she would love this if I made it for her. I'll have to give her a rain check. If you're seeing your mom this Sunday, treat her to this pancake. She'll love it.
