|Strawberries and Cream Pancakes|
I'm posting these on Mardi Gras, also known as Pancake Night in Newfoundland. These light delicious beautiful pancakes will be served again tonight at my house as we celebrate this centuries old tradition. When Fat Tuesday is well behind us we will still be enjoying one of the best pancakes ever at brunches throughout the year.
Makes about 1 dozen
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
Sift together and set aside:
1 2/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
4 tbsp melted butter
Pour over the dry ingredients and whisk together just unjtil combined. Do not over mix. Don't worry about small lumps. The batter will be thick.
Spoon the batter onto a lightly greased griddle on medium low heat, it's best to cook these slowly. You may need to spread the batter out a little with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle chopped strawberries on the top. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until the center is fully cooked.
