Ingredients

  • 230 g | 8oz plain all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 250 ml | 8 1/2 fl oz | 1 cup whole milk + 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g | 3 1/2oz white chocolate chips plus more to serve
  • icing sugar to dust

  • <b>For the roasted strawberries</b>
  • 300 g | 10 1/2 oz strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • small vanilla pod or 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • juice of half a lemon

Instructions

  • If roasting the strawberries, place in a small tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle with the sugar and lemon juice.
  • Add the vanilla pod and roast under a hot grill (broiler) until slightly softened, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly and then drain and reserve the juice.
  • Make the pancake batter. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl.
  • Mix the milk and lemon juice in a measuring jug and leave to stand for 5 minutes (this will curdle the milk slightly).
  • Whisk in the eggs, vanilla extract and lemon zest.
  • Gradually add the wet to the dry ingredients, mixing with a balloon whisk until just combined.
  • Stir in the white chocolate chips. Leave the batter to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a tablespoon on rapeseed oil in a large non-stick frying pan and wipe with kitchen paper. You will need to keep the pan over medium-high heat, adding more oil if necessary.
  • Add half a ladleful of batter and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip over and cook for a minute or so on the other side. Continue until all the batter is used.
  • Serve the pancakes topped with the strawberries and a handful of white chocolate chips.
  • Drizzle with the reserved strawberry juices, dust with a little icing sugar and serve.
