I decided to have pancakes for supper tonight and thought a nice change would be to make strawberry pancakes. These will be great to make for Valentine’s Day. The batter is a nice pink colour and they cooked up really nicely. Fresh strawberries are at a premium this time of year so I used frozen strawberries and my food processor to make the puree.
In a large bowl, combine:
- 1 and 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp ground flax seed meal
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients:
- 1/2 cup strawberry puree
- 1/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (or egg replacer equal to 1 egg)
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 and 1/4 cups milk with 1/2 tsp vinegar (may need a bit more if the batter is too thick)
Mix with a whisk. Fry in a skillet with a little bit of vegetable or canola oil on medium heat for a few minutes on each side. Serve with maple syrup, fruit, whipped cream or whatever else you like on your pancakes! Makes 8 medium size pancakes.
