Almond Milk Pancakes with Maple Roasted Strawberries + Strawberry Recipe Roundup

8 Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 8 Flares ×

Almond milk is a new player at the dinner table in my house. I was genuinely curious about the flavor and how I could use it, so I to use it instead of whole milk or buttermilk in a simple pancake.

Also, I had a craving for brinner. You know, breakfast for dinner. When that happens, we usually end up with biscuits and gravy, but this time I wanted pancakes (and had a good excuse for them).

 

Almond Milk Pancakes with Roasted Strawberries

Roasting the strawberries is a step above macerating them. When you macerate strawberries (or any berry), you let them sit in sugar until they soften. Roasting will soften them, but it will also provide an amazing sauce that won’t be stiff like jam. And maple? Oh, don’t skip the maple syrup. It ties the strawberries in with the pancakes.

Baking powder keeps these pancakes light and fluffy, and the cinnamon balances out the strong vanilla flavor of the almond milk.

But, this recipe is missing one thing.

What ONE thing could make this breakfast for dinner dish any better?

Bacon. Duh.

Almond Milk Pancakes

Makes 6-8 medium pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, whisk the dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until most of the batter is smooth.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Use a 1/4 measuring cup and pour the batter into the skillet. Cook until the edges bubble and the batter bubbles, 1-2 minutes. Continue this process for each pancake.

Maple Roasted Strawberries

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 350.

Clean the strawberries and cut off the heads and halve them into a glass baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar and maple syrup on top, then stir. Roast for 45 minutes, stirring halfway.

Use the roasted strawberries as a topping for your pancakes and enjoy! I added a bit of maple syrup… and butter, too. Why not.

    Almond milk is a wonderful alternative. And your pancakes look scrumptious, Sara!

    As someone who grew up in Japan – one of the world’s biggest consumers of strawberries – I’m delighted to see this lovely parade of photos and recipes celebrating the red gem :)

    • solidgoldeats

      I had no idea Japan has the biggest consumers of strawberries! Very cool fact. I would fit in well there!

    What a wonderful strawberry roundup and thanks so much for including my sorbet! I haven’t tried almond milk yet. Your recipe is making me want to give it a try soon.

    • solidgoldeats

      I am definitely a believer in it now! And I can’t wait to make your sorbet!

    Those roasted strawberries look divine atop your pancakes! Roasting just intensifies the flavors and sweetness, doesn’t it? I can see these over ice cream or as part of a strawberry shortcake as well. Thanks for including my muffins in your round up. Off to visit the other entries!

    I am a big fan of brinner myself – will definitely have to give these pancakes a try! Love the recipe roundup too – thanks for including my chocolate-strawberry pudding.

    These all look so fantastic!! I can’t wait to try several – because I have strawberries in the house. My daughter drinks almond milk all the time – as well as soy. She’s been lactose intollerant her entire life and she preferes almond milk to soy on her cereal for sure!
