  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt (I use sea salt)
  • 1 ½ cups of fresh or frozen berries (raspberries or blueberries)

  2. Combine eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix well.
  3. Stir dry into wet ingredients and mix until just moistened.

  5. Toothpick will come out clean from center when done.

*Do not thaw berries out if frozen
