Homemade Pancakes with Strawberry Topping

I bought 10 pounds of strawberries earlier this month and we have been enjoying a lot of strawberry smoothies. To mix it up, today, I decided to make some pancakes with strawberry topping. My husband swears that homemade pancakes are better than those from the box so I whipped up some pancake mix while my strawberries were roasting into a delicious syrupy strawberry topping. Between prep and cooking it took me about 45 minutes. I started with frozen strawberries but you can definitely use fresh strawberries.  

Recipe Strawberry Topping:

preheat to 425

Strawberry Topping Ingredients:

6 cups whole strawberries (~40 berries)
2/3 cup strawberries

Strawberry Topping Directions:

Spray a cookie sheet with or wipe cookie sheet with oil
Spread out strawberries to form one layer
Put the strawberries in a preheated oven for about 5 minutes (10 minutes for frozen)
remove the strawberries and mash them to your preferred thickness add sugar an place back in the oven
Leave in oven for an additional 10-20 minutes, the longer they stay in the oven the more syrup you should get.
Remove from oven and place in a jar or container to serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

(I cut the strawberry topping recipe in half and there was plenty of topping 4 people.)

Recipe Pancakes:

Oil and preheat your skillet, Medium, Medium-High heat

Pancake Ingredients

1 ½ cups milk
4 T vinegar
4 T melted butter
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
4 T sugar
1t salt

Pancake Directions

Add milk and vinegar in a large bowl together, let it sit for about 5 minutes, add the eggs and melted butter and mix (I used my kitchen aid).
In a separate small bowl add the baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt together, mix then add into the wet ingredients.
Add the flour and mix until smooth. Your batter is ready!

In a non-stick pan pour approximately 1/3 c batter per pancake, wait for the pancake to start bubbling then flip to cook the other side. The recipe yields about 15 pancakes.

Hope you enjoy!
