I promise this is it.

Roasted Strawberry Brown Butter Pancakes I howsweeteats.com

No more roasted strawberries.

No more brown butter.

I’m not roasting any more strawberries or browning any more butter until I roast more strawberries and brown more butter.

Which could possibly be today, buuuut… oh well.

It’s Friday. Time to drink wine. Pretend it’s summer. Buy shoes online. Fall asleep at 9PM because you’re a not-so-secretly 79-year old 29-year old. Dream of that clear phone DJ Tanner had that you were never allowed to have. Plan breakfast for Saturday since it’s the highlight of your life. Stuff like that.

Or plan for Sunday since it’s a super special day.

Perfect for moms. Perfect for you. Perfect for all faces!

Roasted Strawberry Brown Butter Pancakes

serves 3-4

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 egg, lightly beaten

1-1 1/4 cups milk (I prefer vanilla almond milk)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss sliced strawberries with olive oil and a pinch of salt, then lay on a nonstick baking sheet. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until juicy and caramely. While strawberries are roasting, heat butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk constantly until brown bits form on the bottom, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup milk, egg and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry, mixing until just combined, then stir in brown butter (get all the brown bits from the pan!) and 1/4 of the roasted strawberries. If batter isn’t smooth or is too thick, add additional milk. (The strawberries will add liquid to the batter so you may need to add a little more milk if needed, based on your strawberries.)

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Add a bit of butter to the griddle and using a 1/4 cup measure, spoon batter into pan. Cook until bubbles form on top, then flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Top with remaining roasted strawberries and syrup.

    I don’t think you EVER have to stop with the strawberries and browned butter.

    I just had a three course breakfast (yogurt, strawberries and flax, followed by applesauce and peanut butter, followed by a homeamde cookie… I am insane). However even so I still want these pancakes. They sound all kind of delicious and I love how pretty the are too! Please share with us what you make your mama on Sunday too! :)

    Happy Friday!

    I’ve yet to roast a strawberry but I know all too well the wonders of brown butter. Ohhh boy. I don’t even like pancakes, but those two magic ingredients could be their saving grace.

    This looks amazing. I would try it this weekend, except I’m on a wonderful beach vacay! So next Saturday? Check. Then next Sunday? I’m going to try to figure out how to turn this into French toast. Because I’ve been scouring the world for a good fruit-french toast recipe. Wish me luck! (Of course, Jess, if you happen to make this into an amazing french toast recipe before I get back home, that would be a-okay, too!)

    oh! I love your different pancake recipes! The combination of strawberries and pancakes, can’t be beat. I often spread mine with strawberry honey butter. I recently tried your whole wheat greek yogurt pancakes! Absolutely delicious. :)

    Caitlin — May 13, 2012 @ 1:03 am

    I plan on making this for my mom tomorrow for mothers day and I was wondering, can I use whole wheat flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour?


    • Jessica — May 13th, 2012 @ 8:19 am

      I definitely wouldn’t use regular whole wheat – they will probably be dry, gritty, too thick and paste-like. Use all-purpose if you can’t use whole wheat pastry!


      • Caitlin — May 13th, 2012 @ 9:03 am

        Thank you so much!

    Jackie — May 15, 2012 @ 1:49 pm

    Hi Jessica

    Vanilla almond milk is that sweetened or unsweetened.


    • Jessica — May 15th, 2012 @ 2:11 pm

      Either is fine – I use unsweetened.

    Leah — May 16, 2012 @ 10:18 pm

    Those look amazing… and I’m really excited that you reminded me about that clear phone. I had one. It lit up when it rang and even the cord was clear. It was awesome. And so was “Deej”. I so wanted to have her long hair… :-). Gonna make these pancakes FOR SURE!

    Courtney @ Bake. Eat. Repeat. — June 4, 2012 @ 9:28 pm

    Hi Jessica! I’m doing a round up of strawberry recipes on my blog and would love to include this recipe in the mix. May I post a picture from your site along with your blog name linking back to this page? These look incredible, and considering the fact I have a fridge full of strawberries and I’ve been craving brinner I’ll probably make these soon…meaning now.

    Natalie — October 28, 2012 @ 2:53 pm

    I just made these for my husband and I despite having to go to the store to buy whole wheat pastry flour when he was apparently “starving”. Needless to say, he was one happy man after he ate his pancakes! I’m officially in love with browned butter and baking strawberries is genius. Thank you for the delicious idea and recipe. I love your blog. You’re a llife/marriage saver.

    These pancakes are so dee-licious. As soon as I read “…roasted strawberries…” my stomach said,”Oh yeaaaaa…”

    I did have to add the additional milk, but didn’t put too much because I like my PC’s nice an’ thick. It gives it a fluffy, cake-like consistency that I oh-so-love! Shared it with my mom, 2 sisters and cousin…they all enjoyed it! Whoo-hoo!

    On my next day off I’ll be trying out one of your recipes for lunch!

    Thanks so much! Never stop cooking and eating…and posting recipes!!!!
