After a suggestion from my sweetheart, I decided to give it a whirl and whip up some homemade strawberry pancakes for dinner last week. I came home, and just started mixing, measuring and chopping. These pancakes turned out delicious! Although I know I need to work on my "pancake flipping technique", the flavor, fluffiness and sweetness was worth ever inch of flour my kitchen was abused by that evening.
I used a base pancake recipe and simply added some vanilla and chopped fresh strawberries! Simple, easy to prep and puts smiles on your kids faces when they discover that dinner = pancakes! I always double this recipe!
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
In a medium bowl, stir together the flower, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Next pour in the milk, oil, egg and vanilla and whisk until well blended. Gently stir in the strawberries.
Heat large skillet or griddle over medium heat and coat with butter. Pour batter in desired size pancakes. When bubbles appear in the center, flip pancake. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
Top with 3-4 sliced strawberries, maple syrup and a dusting of powder sugar! Yummy!
