Gather your ingredients. Cut the fruit into different shapes. We used strawberries, blueberries and bananas, but you can use any fruit that you like. We sliced the fruit lengthwise and crosswise to get different shapes and sizes.
In a large bowl, add the pancake premix. Make a well in the middle with a spatula or large spoon. Add milk and eggs in the middle well.
Stir your batter until the dry and wet ingredients are just incorporated. Lumps are actually okay! That means mixing until the flour streaks have disappeared, but leaving the pesky lumps. If you over-mix, the gluten will develop from the flour in your batter, making your pancakes chewy instead of fluffy.
