Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes, perfect for a summers day brunch!
It’s that time of year again, time for ripe berries and lazy late mornings somewhere between spring and summer spent whipping up a large stack of pancakes topped with strawberries.
By using a strawberry huller you aren’t losing part of the fruit that you might lose when simply cutting off the top with a paring knife.
I have been on a pancake kick lately so I immediately knew what I wanted to whip up. I also love my homemade whipped cream which can be used in almost any recipe that calls for cool whip or whipped cream in general. It makes a lot of whipped cream so the leftovers that you will ultimately have after making this recipe makes a good dipper for various fruits and pound cake.
You can also just save the leftovers and make a second batch the next morning of these pancakes. Feel free to make this chocolate fondue dip.
Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes
These light and fluffy pancakes are made even better with the addition of homemade whipped cream and tons of fresh strawberries!
- homemade whipped cream recipe
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour

- Once bubbles form, flip with a pancake turner or spatula.
- Continue until all of the batter is gone.
- Layer the pancake stack with a pancake and then the whipped cream.
- Keep this pattern until all pancakes are used.
- Feel free to add as many fresh strawberries as you would like in between each layer.
