Strawberry Pancakes

Strawberry Pancakes

Another great Saturday morning breakfast. I do believe I've started a trend akin to my Sunday night dinner posts. Perhaps I'll add Saturday morning breakfast posts to the lineup.

Anyhow, just like last weekend, we started with the Pancake recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance. But rather than going with the blueberry variation listed in the book, I omitted the cinnamon and stirred in a cup of chopped, fresh strawberries instead. I garnished the pancakes with more strawberries and some sliced banana, drizzled 'em with a bit of maple syrup and enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast.

The Husband and I liked these even more than the Blueberry Pancakes we had last weekend. Plus, we had the satisfaction of using the locally grown strawberries I picked up at the farmer's market earlier this week.

A kick-ass way to start the weekend, if I do say so myself. And I just did. So there.

Me and my daughter have a slightly different view when it comes to pancakes.I believe you should not mess with a classic.

She dons hers with any fruit imaginable. Not me, just good ole pat of butter with some maple syrup. Mmmm Mmmm good.
