“One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste .” – Goethe
School-going kids are so good at skipping breakfast! Nothing is more frustrating than chasing your child around the house with food in your hand (and I’m speaking from personal experience).
With strawberries in season, I find a solution to my problem in this sweet and simple strawberry pancake recipe. Besides the good old strawberry milk shakes and smoothies, many other ordinary things can be perked up using the cheery and refreshing strawberries, even your oats breakfast.
Other than being popular with kids, these lovely pancakes are good to wish someone a happy birthday early in the morning or just cheer up someone who is feeling blue or make a special breakfast for your Valentine.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 large egg
1/2teaspoon vanilla extract
Vegetable oil for greasing the pan
Fresh strawberries and vanilla ice cream to serve
This Is What You Need To Do :
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, milk, egg, salt and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Chop the strawberries and then mash them with a fork or simply slice if you prefer bigger chunks.
Add the strawberries to the mixture . Lightly grease a non-stick sauce pan with vegetable oil.
Spoon 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan. Keep the heat medium low, flip the pan cake as soon as you see bubbles pop up on the surface.
The cooked side should be golden in colour. Press with spatula, if no uncooked batter oozes out then its cooked. Repeat with all the batter. Keep pancakes warm, serve with fresh strawberries and vanilla ice cream.
