Strawberry and Cream Pancakes

      No Comments on Strawberry and Cream Pancakes

Strawberry and Cream Pancakes make for one tasty breakfast. All the flavor of strawberry short cakes and the nutrition of a bowl of oatmeal, all in the style of a pancake!

Pancakes are definitely a comfort food for me. Growing up whenever I was sick my mom would make “sick pancakes.” Which somehow she made without getting any color on them so they were pure white and cooked perfectly, I think she made them with magic. Now pancakes are a treat, a perfect lazy day breakfast. But these pancakes freeze so well I can have my favorite breakfast whenever I want without having to get up early!

I absolutely love living in Florida, warm weather all year long it’s amazing! For me the best part of warm weather all year means delicious fruit all year. I never thought I’d be going to my local produce stand in December to get beautiful juicy strawberries. Over the summer I heard a new term that is my favorite “corporate strawberries” to describe those huge strawberries that are available at the grocery store all year; red and dry and white in the center, yuck! No corporate strawberries for me! Using delicious red strawberries you can just chop them up raw and sprinkle them in anything for a touch of freshness and sweetness. The combination of fresh strawberry and cottage cheese in these pancakes makes them almost reminiscent of a strawberry shortcake, what a way to start your day!
