Wow, I cannot believe I am the first to review this recipe ! These were soooo goood. Made them for a b'day breakfast, simple and quick, ttly delish. I added another 1.5 cups of strawberries and a touch of extra cinnamon. You could even add different fruits when they are fresh & in season with an excellent pancake batter like this. Served with Pure Maple Syrup & breakfast sausages, next time will add whipping cream as a garnish. Also made a batch of Honey Cinnamon Butter # 43768. This batter without all the x-tra treats would be an excellent pancake batter for everyday breakfasts. Best homemade pancake batter I have ever tried. I had given up on homemade batters but this was perfect and I will use this one whenever I make pancakes !!! Thanx for sharing a great treat !

The taste depends on the quality of your strawberries, and only perfect, fresh, ripe small-to-medium-size strawberries should be used for this recipe. With strawberries out of season, I defrosted large frozen strawberries, which lacked in taste. My rating is based on the batter, which puffed up a lot and required me to brown these much more to cook through; the cake didn't have a very distinctive taste to me. I preferred the batter from Cook's Illustrated that was much thinner and tastier, and permitted me to sprinkle fruit on top of each pancake in the pan. (When I tried that technique on these, all of the strawberry slices stayed on the bottom of the pancake.) I would add some lemon or orange zest to this batter to brighten the taste of the strawberries. I would heat up some strawberries preserves to use as syrup. Made for I Recommend Tag.

These were very good! I doubled the cinnamon and added a touch of vanilla. My only complaint was they were not that fluffy. The taste was great, but I wished they were puffier. Thanks ratherbe, another great recipe!

We really liked these pancakes. We loved using the powdered sugar on top. It was something a little different. Great with fresh strawberries. Thanks for posting this lovely recipe.

These were a hit for dinner at our house, with freshly picked strawberries. I did have trouble getting them cooked through - I may have added a few too many extra strawberries. Will try again next spring, without going overboard with the strawberries. Thanks for sharing!

My boys don't really like fruit pancakes, but to my surprise they really liked these. What I liked the most was the batter itself, without the strawberries. Thanks for sharing!

Yum! These were a great change up from ordinary pancakes or even blueberry pancakes. I've never thought to add strawberries, but they are delicious this way. I cut the amount of cinnamon in half per the other reviews, and thought that it was just right. I will definitely be making these again, thanks so much for posting!
