This recipe comes together in just a few simple and easy steps! First, start by preparing your pancake batter according to the recipe and/or package directions, and set aside.
Next, prepare your strawberries by removing the tops from them and slicing them in 1/2 inch pieces. Then, head a pan, on the stove, over medium heat and lightly grease it with a little oil or butter.
While the pan is heating up, dip each of your strawberry slices into the pancake batter until they’re fully coated. Then, place your coated strawberries into the hot pan and cook for approximately two minutes on each side, or until they’re golden brown.
Once they’re done, dust them with powdered sugar, dip them in maple syrup, and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an aright container in the fridge for up to one week.
