Pink Pancakes with Crushed Strawberry Oreos

I had the most fabulous Mother's Day in May. I know, the post is a few months late, but there's always an excuse to pamper your mum,or wife, or lucky lady in your life with these femininely pink pancakes. Any woman will be impressed by the sweet gesture and "your" creativity (you don't have to tell them where the idea came from) Have you ever treated her to pancakes in bed on Saturday morning? You know you want to! (for all those times you had man-flu and she waited upon you hand and foot)
It cant get much better than pancakes, smothered in strawberry jam and topped with vanilla ice cream and crushed strawberry flavoured oreos. Its rich and decadent and oh so good in bed.

PINK PANCAKES WITH STRAWBERRY OREOS (adapted from Better Homes and Gardens 07/11)

1 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
60g butter
2 tbsp honey
1 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
a few drops of pink or red food
4 strawberry oreos
ice cream
strawberry jam if desired

Sift flour and bicarb into a medium sized bowl. Heat butter and honey in a small saucepan over a low heat. Cook, stirring, until the butter has melted and is smooth. Set aside to cool.
Add milk and beaten egg to the butter mixture and whisk until combined. Place a few drops of pink or red food colouring in the mixture and stir gently to combine. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the wet mixture. Stir until a smooth batter forms.
Add a little butter to the base of a large fry pan, at medium heat. Dollop four spoonfuls of batter into the fry pan at once. When bubbles begin to burst on the surface of the pancakes, flip and cook the other side until golden. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve pancakes spread with strawberry jam and with a large scoop of ice cream with crushed oreos on the top.

Serves 3-4

  2. These are sure the prettiest pancakes I have ever seen. I love to jump out of bed in the morning as soon as I wake but I would linger a while to get some of these.

  3. They are seriously the cutest pancakes ever! I love them. Fingers crossed I can strategically leave this post open on my computer for my partner to find!
