Food Nasty turned 2 on May 25th! So we are celebrating with some birthday pancakes inspired by a breakfast that my dearest friend Flora’s mother (my Brazilian mother) Helena had made for me. I can only say that these are probably the best pancakes I have ever had, and that the mix of a warm spice and fruit is a fabulous way to give a classic recipe a kick in the rear.
So happy belated birthday Food Nasty!! Enjoy these strawberry curry pancakes; they are a wonderful summer brunch item that you must add to your weekend.
Ingredients: Makes 12-15
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil + extra tablespoon for skillet
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon yellow curry powder
½ cup diced strawberries
In a medium bowl mix together wet ingredients, only using two tablespoons of oil. In a small bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Add the dry to wet, and mix together, making sure you don’t over mix.
Add in the diced strawberries, mix.
Heat a large skillet on medium heat, and lightly oil with the extra tablespoon of oil. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, or a ice cream scooper (or whatever you think will be equivalent), scoop batter, and pour. Try to get them as round as possible, and make 2-3 depending on space.
Pancakes will be ready to flip after about 2 minutes, you will see bubbles start to form. Flip, and bake for another two minutes.
If you are not serving immediately, you can heat the oven to 200 degrees, and place pancakes in there on a foil covered baking sheet to keep warm.
Drizzle with syrup and dig in!
