I’m finally getting settled into my routine, the beginning of the year was challenging for me in terms of me being able to find the time to do all the things I need to get done everyday (which are a lot), including posting recipes. I missed posting!
But I seem to have it all under control now (I hope!), and I am back with this recipe right in time for Valentine’s Day so you can enjoy a little something sweet for breakfast. I wanted to try a new strawberry pancake recipe, but all I could find were pink colored pancakes. That’s not what I was looking for. I decided to use my regular pancake batter and just add sliced fresh strawberries on top of the pancake, after I had poured the batter on the hot pan. I wondered if I could find an interesting syrup to go along with it? I found just the thing in Marla Meredith’s blog, Family Fresh Cooking (we love her) a Cream Cheese Maple Sauce.
As decoration, just cut out a triangle shape on top of the strawberry to form a heart-like shape, then slice the strawberry in half of into thirds lengthwise. This pancake recipe can easily be doubled to feed a larger crowd. Typically, we use this recipe to feed 3 people, including my 5-year-old. Same thing with the syrup. This made just enough to cover my pancake stack, I added extra maple syrup to my pancakes once they were served.
