Strawberry Short(pan)Cakes

With a nod to my Swedish friends, we had pancakes for dinner tonight, topped with vanilla yogurt and heaped with strawberries.

I follow the 1-1-1 recipe for making up pancake batter, as follows:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbs. oil
  • 1 Tbs. sugar

From there it’s great to improvise. Tonight I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and also poured in some wheat germ. In place of 1/2 of the milk I substituted some yogurt. So even though it’s pancakes for dinner, it’s pretty healthy!

Another great variation is to add a whole grated apple and some cinnamon.

    I’m so thrilled to have found (via Stephanie) your blog! It’s so beautiful and fun and full of great ideas for busy families. Just this morning, Gary said he’d love to have crab cakes tonight but didn’t know how to make them, so I directed him to you!

    Mostly I love reading about you and your family.

    I miss you so!

    Love, Candace

    • I’m thrilled to see a note from you! Happy crab cakes to Mr. Gary. It should work the same as for salmon patties, although you might want to hold off on the creamed sauce with peas. 🙂
