Every once in a while on the weekends, I will get out my large derriere out of bed and make my darling daughter something special and sweet! The key phrase there being every once in a while. I am not sure if it makes her feel special but it makes me feel like I am being a good Mom! She is always appreciative of my effort and savors every bite. Spring is coming and fresh strawberries are making their way to the market. When I pass them at the store I just love the fresh sweet smell. There is just nothing like it!! You may even find yourself enjoying some of this special sweet goodie! There are little bits of strawberry in the pancake and the whole caboodle is topped with glorious lightly sweetened strawberry syrup!
How do You Make Strawberry Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce?
Start with Your Lightly Sweet Strawberry Sauce
First lets make the strawberry sauce. Add the cut strawberries to a saucepan and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. Simmer for eight to ten minutes stirring gently several times. Squeeze a tablespoon of lime juice into the sauce.
Next, Make Your From-Scratch Strawberry Pancakes
Combine the milk and vinegar and let it set for about five minutes. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Melt a couple of tablespoons of butter in the microwave. Stir the melted butter, egg and vanilla into the milk mixture. Now whisk the milk mixture into the flour mixture just until combined. Gently fold in the reserved strawberries. Resist the urge to over-mix since this can make your pancakes tough.
Heat a little canola or vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. I like to use my cast-iron skillet. Pour one-quarter cup of batter to the skillet. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the sides are brown and slightly crispy. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Serve warm with the fresh strawberry sauce.
What pan is best for cooking pancakes?
My favorite pan for cooking pancakes is my cast-iron skillet. I love the crispy edges that I get from that pan. However, if you prefer your edges not quite so crispy then use a non-stick skillet with just a little cooking spray. A stove-top griddle works really well too!
Can you substitute other fruit?
Yes you most certainly can! For both the blackberries and the raspberries, reduce the simmering time for the sauce to about five minutes.
So if you love pancakes and strawberries then these Strawberry Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce are right up your alley. Your family is going to love this sweet breakfast treat. They will be singing your praises and you can smile like a Cheshire cat!
