HAPPY PANCAKE DAY: Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day! I love pancakes and today was the perfect excuse for me to have a cheat day. Woohoo! So, my boyfriend and I have only gone and cooked up some delicious strawberry vanilla pancakes. Well, it was mostly me teaching him how to make them. Why strawberry flavour you ask? Strawberries are my boyfriend's favourite fruit (believe it or not, it was actually his first word) and so I thought it would make him smile. Good news, these beauties made him smile.. a lot, they were super tasty too which was a bonus! Here's how you can make these mouth-watering strawberry vanilla pancakes, it's easy.

What you need: 
  •  1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 cup fresh chopped strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  •  2 tablespoons brown sugar
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 

  1.  Stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt then pour in the milk, oil, egg and vanilla, and mix well. 
  2. Stir in the strawberries.
  3. Heat up a large pan coated with butter then add in a tablespoon of batter or desired size of pancakes.
  4. Flip with a spatula when bubbles appear in the center. Cook until golden brown on the other side.
  5. I told you it was easy!  

So sad that pancake day is over but I'm so glad I got to share it with one of the most important people in my life!
