My son woke me up this morning asking for strawberry pancakes. Let me start by saying this is the FIRST time he has ever requested a pancake breakfast. His usual is hash browns and eggs, and every once in a while he’ll have a side of bacon. Recently I bought him a book where a little boy asks his mom to make him pancakes; I think he is borrowing the pancake breakfast from his book. That he added strawberries to his request is fitting, since strawberries are his fruit of choice. These pancakes were made with my son in mind, but are fully adult-friendly as well. Enjoy!
