Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

This morning I decided to try one of the recipes suggested by Cookie Monster. When your first name is Cookie, how can you go wrong? I got this recipe from C is for Cooking, a Sesame Street cookbook which suggests simple recipes that kids can also help prepare. Kids can cut up fruit and soft vegetables with a plastic knife, crack eggs (careful!) or stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Very fun. The strawberry sauce is so easy to make - just cut up about a cup of strawberries, add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar and leave it aside while you prepare the pancakes. The juices will ooze out of the fruit and mix with the sugar and what you get is a natural, sweet sauce. Strawberries are in season here in Suzhou, so this is the perfect time to make this sauce. We had our pancakes with honey too. Very yum..

Here's my take on Cookie's pancakes.

Dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Liquid ingredients:
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup yoghurt
2 tbsp vegetable oil

In a large bowl, stir all the dry ingredients together. In another bowl, mix the liquid ingredients together. Pour liquid into the dry ingredients and mix with a fork till well blended. Lightly grease a skillet and place over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of the mixture into the skillet and cook till the top bubbles. Turn over and cook for another minute. Serve with the strawberry sauce.
