YUM!!! YUM!!! I made these wonderful, healthful pancakes this morning because I had a bunch of fresh strawberries left over. These were so good!! I have this cookbook too, but I have never tried this recipe. Thanks for posting it. Terrific. I also wanted to mention that if you use verynice sweet strawberries, you don't even need to add the maple syrup if you want to cut back your sugar. But the maple syrup makes it extra good for a splurge. I also recommend leaving out cool whip because it is gross hydrogenated oil...YUK!
I got this exact recipe from the cookbook The Food You Crave, with one difference -- 3/4 cup nonfat milk. I think I'd like it with 1/2 cup better because the batter was quite thin. The taste was really good though. We had it with fat free spray whipped cream on top because the sauce was a bit sour. My 10-year-old loved this!
I loved how these were half wholewheat and half white - I bake all the time and go straight for white flour, but this made me stop and think about maybe adding in a little more whole wheat to my life! They had a lovely earthy flavour and the heart shape is a really cute touch. The sauce was to die for - so fresh and sweet - I did add in the maple syrup as strawberries aren't too sweet here at the moment! It added a lovely flavour to the sauce :)
I thought the heart shaped idea was great! It made a pretty presentation. For the syrup, I used the recipe from My Pancakes for One With Strawberry Syrup, which is basically like this one with a few small differences. My husband thought the pancakes were fantastic. Goodness, though--they are THICK so make sure they are cooked all the way through! But it's well worth the effort :-). Thank u for sharing!!
Awesome and healthy pancakes! Texture was perfect, the were light fluffy and very filling. I used agave nectar instead of the maple syrup. My kids loved them as well.
