I happen to come across this pancake recipe at 2 different recipe websites... allrecipes and Tasty Kitchen. While I enjoyed these pancakes, I do think you could cut back on the vanilla extract just a bit. The pancakes tasted great with maple syrup, but I also think they tasted even better with fresh strawberries and Reddi Wip Whipped Topping!
Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 whole egg
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
maple syrup (or) jam
Additional fresh strawberries, to garnish pancakes
Reddi Wip (or) Cool Whip, to garnish pancakes
In a medium size bowl stir together, the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
Pour in the milk, oil, egg, and vanilla extract (yes that's 2 tablespoons of extract), and mix until well blended.
Stir in the 1 cup of fresh chopped strawberries.
Coat a large skillet or griddle, with butter or cooking spray. Then heat skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Pour batter into desired size of pancakes, onto skillet or griddle. Flip with a spatula when bubbles appear in the center. Cook until golden brown on the other side.
Top pancakes with either maple syrup, or jam, or fresh strawberries and Reddi Wip (or Cool Whip). I ate mine with fresh strawberries and Reddi Wip.
Yields: About 8 pancakes
