Pancakes with strawberries

Brunch at the Jacob house today was pancakes with strawberries by popular demand!

A picture is worth a thousand words so I won't say any more :)


270 g all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp caster sugar
260 ml milk
4 tbsp olive oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
Rind of one orange, grated (optional)

To serve
Maple syrup
1/2 punnet strawberries,cut up and sprinkled with a little caster sugar (this helps them macerate and really brings out their taste)

1. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar in a bowl. 

2. In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients together,  milk, egg, vanilla essence and olive oil.  Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and mix together with a whisk to get rid of any lumps.

3. Heat a pan.  Pour a ladleful of batter.  Once bubbles start appearing on the top, flip the pancake and let it cook - these are best done on a low flame as they burn easily.  

4. You can keep them in a warm oven to maintain temperature until you're ready to eat. 

5. Stack up on a place, dish out some strawberries on top and pour a generous serving of maple syrup (hey I didn't say it was a healthy recipe!!!!).
