Instructions
  1. In a cup, add 1 tsp of instant coffee and ½ cup hot water. Stir till coffee is dissolved and cooled. You will only need 2 tablespoons of this.

  4. Combine and whisk till evenly mixed
  5. Carefully Fold in raspberries
  6. Place ¼-cup batter onto non-stick skillet and cook till bubbles start appearing through the top of the pancake and then flip.
  7. About 2 minutes on each side
  8. For Raspberry sauce:
  9. Press raspberries through a fine sieve or cheesecloth-lined strainer to get rid of the seeds. Than add lemon juice and sugar. Stir till sugar is dissolved. Store left over sauce in the refrigerator. Makes ¾ cups
Notes
If you don't have time to defrost your raspberries, you can microwave them for 1 minute intervals. I did this for about two minutes.
