It's recipe swap time! This time the theme is Secret Recipe Club Style, meaning we are given a blog and can choose any recipe from it to make. I was given Lishie's blog, DeLish. It was really early, think 4:45 AM Sunday morning, when I started searching for what I would make. After searching for a while I got hungry and settled on something I could make for breakfast.
As I mentioned last week, strawberries are at a great price right now and I'm still looking for ways to use them up. I settled on these Strawberry Pancakes with Strawberry Pancakes with Strawberry Maple Compound Butter. This was my first experience with compound butter, I added the maple not sure how it would work out. I'm happy to have discovered how easy these are to make. I can see experiments with different flavor combinations in my future.
Here is what you'll need:
For the Pancakes:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 sliced strawberries
- butter (for the pan)
Melt 1/2 Tbsp butter in a small frying pan over medium heat. Pour ~1/2 cup batter into pan and allow to cook about 3-4 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown and the top is covered in bubbles. Flip the pancake over and cook the second for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
To serve, plate and top with a small dollop of compound butter (recipe below) and maple syrup. Makes 5 pancakes.
For the Butter:
- 4 Tbsp butter, softened to room temperature
- 2 Tbsp finely chopped strawberries
- 2 tsp maple syrup
