Directions

  1. Sift dry ingredients together.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg till fluffy using a wisk or fork.
  3. Add vanilla bean and continue beating until the vanilla seeds visibly changes the colour of the egg. Remove remainder of vanilla bean.
  4. Little by little add milk, dry ingredients, and melted butter by the tablespoon while continuing mixing.
  5. Fold in the strawberries, lemon rind, and juice. Watch the batter turn purple.
  6. Heat a non-stick (teflon) pan on medium. (It is the right heat when you drop some water on the hot dry pan and see it "dance" for a few seconds before it evaporates.) Add 1-2 tablespoons of canola oil for frying each time.
  7. Use a disher style ice cream scoop, scoop pancake batter for frying. Turn over with wooden spoon when lumpy bubbles are all over the pancake.
  8. Serving suggestion: I topped mine with fresh strawberries, kiwi, mangoes, and chocolate syrup. Try also berry jam or ice cream, and finish with unsweetened tea or coffee.
