Serves: 4 

  • Strawberry sauce
  • 500g strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • Pancakes
  • 200g plain flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 300ml milk

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. For the strawberry sauce thinly slice 400g strawberries and place in a bowl. Sprinkle sugar on top and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut remaining strawberries in quarters and set aside for garnish.
  2. Meanwhile make the pancake batter: sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into a big bowl. Add salt and sugar and mix well. Add milk, egg and melted butter and whisk until smooth.
  3. Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan. Ladle the batter into the pan using about 1/8 of the batter for each pancake. When bubbles start forming on top, flip the pancake over and cook a few more minutes on the other side. Transfer to a plate to keep warm and repeat with the remaining batter.
  4. Mash the sugared strawberries with a fork or puree in a food processor. Serve the pancakes with the strawberry sauce spooned on top and garnish with the strawberry quarters.
