Anytime we go up to the family cabin outside of Durango, we always have to stop at Honeyville! We’ve been going there since it was a tiny shop, about the size of our living room, and before they expanded not only their location, but also their selection.
We love this place! Everything I’ve ever had there is delicious and everyone who works there is incredibly friendly. Even better? Samples! You can try their whipped honey, jams, syrups, and if you’re 21 or older, their wines and spirits.
When we were there last week I tried their butter pecan syrup and immediately knew I needed to bring some home. When I was purchasing it, the very sweet young woman saw what I was getting and got excited. “What are you going to put it on? I’m always looking for new ideas for that one!”
Hmmm, what was I going to put it on? Well first I put it on good old fashioned pancakes. And it was good, don’t get me wrong, but it was a lot of sweet. What it needed was something a little tart (blueberries?) and some warm spices (cinnamon and nutmeg?) to balance the delicious sweetness of the syrup.
So I added blueberries, cinnamon and nutmeg to my faithful pancake recipe and the results were…. soooooo good!
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons cooled melted butter
- 1 cup blueberries
- Butter pecan syrup (might I recommend Honeyville’s?)
- Mix all of your dry ingredients together.
- Add your milk, egg and melted butter, and mix until incorporated.
- Gently stir in your blueberries.
- Cook on a hot griddle or frying pan.
- Top with butter pecan syrup and enjoy!
