How to make roasted strawberries

Roasting strawberries intensifies their flavor, brings out their natural sweetness, and creates a rich and intense flavor that is amazing. 

You can skip this step, but it makes the pancakes have a fantastic strawberry flavor, so I wouldn’t recommend it! 

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet (affiliate link) with parchment paper.
  3. Toss the sliced strawberries in the olive oil and a tiny pinch of salt, then lay flat on a baking sheet.
  4. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until juicy and caramely.
  5. When done, remove them from the oven, let them cool for a few minutes and then chop them up.

*Note: You can use frozen strawberries to make roasted strawberries, just thaw them first.


What can you do with roasted strawberries? Add these anywhere you would use fresh strawberries – on your oatmeal, in your yogurt, on strawberry shortcake, or in muffins.

How to make browned butter

Browned butter is butter that has been melted and slowly cooked until its milk fats get a rich brown and nutty and carmely aroma and flavor. It’s a secret weapon that improves any recipe you use it in!

  1. Place a small light colored saucepan on medium-low heat.
  2. Add the butter and slowly melt, whisking constantly, until the butter has melted.
  3. Once melted, the butter will start to foam and sizzle around the edges. Keep stirring ofr an additional 5-6 minutes.
  4. The foam will disappear and you will notice the little brown bits start to form on the bottom (these are the milk fats toasting), and turn golden brown and fragrant in about 5-6 minutes. Watch it closely, it goes from nothing to burnt in 3 seconds flat. 
  5. Pour the browned butter in a heat proof container to allow to cool. Make sure to scrape every single drop of butter and every brown fleck of toasted milk fat into your bowl, you don’t want to waste any of it!

How to make strawberry pancakes

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the milk, the egg, and vanilla.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in the brown butter and the roasted strawberries.
  5. If you want your batter thinner, this is when you can add more milk until you get the consistency you want.
  6. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.
  7. Add a bit of butter or cooking spray to the pan, and scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan.
  8. Cook until bubbles form on top, then flip, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown on both sides.
  9. Top with syrup and Enjoy!

Tips to make great pancakes

  • Don’t overmix your pancake batter! It’s ok to have a few small clumps of flour while you are mixing. Over mixing the batter will cause the pancakes to be rubbery and not fluffy.
  • To prep this recipe ahead of time, you can roast the strawberries up to two days ahead. You can also measure and mix the dry ingredients ahead of time and store them in an air tight container on the counter until you are ready to mix.
  • If you want your pancakes to be thinner, you can add another ¼ cup of milk to the recipe. 

How to store leftovers

Store any leftover pancakes in an airtight container (or wrapped in foil) in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

Once I saw Shelley's version of these, I had to come by and see yours. OMG..I'm dying, I must have a stack now. I think I'm going to tackle them this weekend. I bet a sourdough-brown butter pancake would be pretty awesome too!

This looks great..love how there is some whole wheat flour in there! I have been contemplating moving my 2 yr old out of the crib...very nervous. My older son didn't give a hard time but the little one is a much different personality. I was thinking of making the crib into the toddler bed so it would feel too unfamiliar. I think the hardest thing is getting him to stay in the bed and not roam around the house playing.

I will definitely try these. We recently moved our 2 year old into his big boy bed. It took a few nights and he now insists on taking two blankies, a train and a truck, as well as being wedged in on each side by a guard and pillow, but he is finally happy. It's all too hard when there's no sleep though - I'm sure the return to the cot was a relief for everyone!
