Quick strawberry pancake

1 cup (140 g / 5 Oz.) fresh strawberries, sliced
3 medium size eggs
1 cup all-purpose wheat flour
1 cup milk (feel free to use nondairy milk if you wish)
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons melted butter, for greasing the pan
Add 1 teaspoon dry mint into batter
- Preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
- Set up your blender.
- Add the eggs, milk, wheat flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt into the blender.
- Blend well on low speed for about 10 to 15 seconds. (Do not overblend)
- Rest the batter for about 5 minutes.
- Grease a medium cake or pizza pan with melted butter.
- Pour the mixture into pan.
- Place the sliced strawberries on the batter.
- Place the pan in the oven.
- Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until it is light golden color.
- Remove from the oven and serve warm. (Sprinkle sugar on top before serving)
- If you have the time, rest the crepe batter in the fridge overnight. Doing so will yield a much tastier and fluffier crepe. Do not forget to stir it up with a spoon before cooking as it the batter might get separated during night.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder and 2 tablespoons lemon juice into batter to reduce the egg flavor. You can also replace the strawberries with fresh apple slices or other berries.
- Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder into batter mix to make the chocolate version (also sprinkle about 2 tablespoons chocolate chips on the batter after pouring it on the pan—optional).
- For a flavor twist, try pouring some maple syrup over the strawberry cake just before serving.
Why are strawberries popular?
Strawberries are popular because they are available all year long and taste luscious. Although they are called berries, the strawberries are actually considered a type of simple fruit. This is simply because they are stemmed from one flower with one ovary. Moreover, a pastry shop simply cannot operate without them. They smell and look great! Plus, strawberries lower blood pressure, decrease cancer risk and protect the heart. They are loaded with polyphenols, vitamins, and fiber. However, they must be washed carefully since they may contain pesticide residues. It is best to consume them in moderation, as is the case with all other fruits and vegetables.
