Marionberry Swirl Pancakes – You guys. It’s Saturday. That means it’s PANCAKE time!!

Marionberry Swirl Pancakes

Have you ever heard of a marionberry? No? You’re not alone. Until I visited Harry & David last year I had no idea either. A marionberry is a kind of blackberry that grows in Oregon and it makes AMAZING jams and preserves. Also? It makes amazing pancakes.

I’m super excited about these pancakes for a couple reasons. One, because they were fluffy and perfect. Two, because they are not only swirled with marionberries, but they’re also pecan praline flavored. (Seriously – one of my favorite flavors of anything ever!) And three, because I’m working with Harry and David to bring you this recipe!

Last year, when I visited H&D, I fell in love with the company. It’s like one big family, from the growers to the packers to the marketers. Seriously. So when they asked if I’d help them out with a recipe, I jumped at the chance. Who would turn down a basket like this? No one I know, that’s for sure!

Learn How to Make These Marionberry Swirl Pancakes

See how pretty those swirls are? They’re so easy to make too – you just mix some preserves in with some of the pancake batter and swirl it on the cooking pancakes. Easy peasy, and they make the pancakes taste wonderful. A berry flavored pecan praline pancake, smoothered in marionberry scented maple syrup.

That’s a brunch win, if you ask me.

  1. I have loved marionberries since I visited my older sister when she lived near Seattle back in the late ‘ 80s. When I told my husband A decade later that I found some marionberry jam in a store, he said, “what?  Are you sure you’re not talking about a crack-smoking mayor?” Thanks for coming up with a recipe for these berries.  Now I have to go back to Seattle!

  2. No plain pancakes here! All these luscious flavors, plus a fancy swirl! I love using jam in baking and need to go find some marionberry jam to try!

  3. I absolutely love Harry & David! One of my go-to sites for gift baskets! And these pancakes look fantastic, Dorothy! 

  4. I’ve never been big on blackberries, but I love raspberries so if marionberries were on the East Coast, I’d definitely give them a try!  I really love the swirl in the pancakes – creative and fun!

  5. I’m making cinnamon rolls this morning. But I wish I was having these! From now on, you have to post pancakes on a Wednesday, so I can plan ahead mmkay?

  6. These look delicious! I’ve never had marionberries before. I’ll have to track some down sometime!

  7. I love pancakes on Saturday mornings! I’ve never tried marionberry before, it looks beautiful in these pancakes, a great idea!!

  8. They sound so fancy!! They look amazing and I love that you took the time to swirl in the berries! That wouldn’t have ever worked well for me. Patience is not my virtue 🙂
