Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes
Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes, perfect for a summers day brunch!
It's that time of year again, time for ripe berries and lazy late mornings somewhere between spring and summer spent whipping up a large stack of pancakes topped with strawberries.
By using a strawberry huller you aren't losing part of the fruit that you might lose when simply cutting off the top with a paring knife.
I have been on a pancake kick lately so I immediately knew what I wanted to whip up. I also love my homemade whipped cream which can be used in almost any recipe that calls for cool whip or whipped cream in general. It makes a lot of whipped cream so the leftovers that you will ultimately have after making this recipe makes a good dipper for various fruits and pound cake.
You can also just save the leftovers and make a second batch the next morning of these pancakes. Feel free to make this chocolate fondue dip.
- homemade whipped cream recipe
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour

- While whisking drizzle the melted butter into the batter and mix until butter is completely incorporated. Be careful not to over mix, some lumps are okay.

- Once bubbles form, flip with a pancake turner or spatula.
- Continue until all of the batter is gone.
- Layer the pancake stack with a pancake and then the whipped cream.
- Keep this pattern until all pancakes are used.
- Feel free to add as many fresh strawberries as you would like in between each layer.
