Easy peasy lemon squeezy

You’ll never ever guess how this recipe came to me. Really.


I was making some morning pancakes just like I almost always do on Friday, and I wanted to tweak the recipe into something more interesting, so to get some inspiration there I went to the refrigerator door & flung it open & stuck my head right in to see if anything would grasp my interest. I saw a jar of Jam right in the back of the fridge & went for it.

So I added it to the pancake batter and went to the pan to flip some pancakes, & for some reason they just kept burning! So anyhow, with my impatience, I simply got a pan, and dumped all the batter into it and plunged it into a hot oven, & viola! There it was. You can practically use any jam for these, I’ve used raspberry & strawberry so far & I love the results, so you can experiment as much as you like.

Another awesome thing about this is that it’s such a fast & easy dish to make! If you have guests coming, this dish will only require 30 minutes to make J

Here’s the recipe:

Strawberry Pan-Cake:

-50 g of melted butter

-1 cup of milk

-1 egg

-1 teaspoon of vanilla

-3 tablespoons of sugar

-1 cup of flour

-1 tablespoon baking powder

-A pinch of salt

-About ½ a cup of strawberry Jam (Or any other jam you have at hand)


-2 cups of whipped cream

-1 sliced Banana

-A handful of blackberries

-2 tablespoons of butterscotch sauce (You can use store-bought or make your own, I followed this recipe)


Place the melted butter and milk in a medium bowl and mix using a whisk, follow with the egg and vanilla and mix again. And follow with the sugar & mix.

Next add the flour, baking powder, & salt and mix until you achieve a smooth batter. Now spoon in the jam and whisk until well mixed into the batter.

Prepare an oven safe pan by spraying it with cooking spray on all sides and drizzle in the batter in the pan.

Place in a preheated oven on 250C and bake for about 20 minutes, or until inserted skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool then top with cream, bananas, blackberries, and finally the butterscotch sauce.
