STRAWBERRY ROSÉ PANCAKES
Makes 4 1/2 cups batter, makes about 16 pancakes
1 ½ cup chopped strawberries
1-2 tablespoons of sugar (depends how sweet your berries are)
2 cups whole wheat pastry or all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup Rosé*
1 cup almond or other nondairy milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rosewater** (optional but why not flex)
Mix the strawberries and the sugar together is a small bowl and set it aside. Combine flour, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, and salt all in a large bowl and whisk until that shit is all mixed up.
By now the strawberries and sugar should have mixed together and released some sweet juice. Pour up to ¼ of that into a cup and mix it with the rosé. Make a hole in the center of the flour mix and pour in almond milk, rosé, vanilla extract, and rose water. Whisk that all together till most of the chunks are gone. Gently stir in ¾ cup of the chopped strawberries.
For people who have never made a pancake, the fuck is wrong with you? Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Splash some water on it and once it sizzles you're good to go. Scoop up around ⅓ cup of batter onto the griddle and cook until the pancakes have slightly browned on the edges and there are a lot of air bubbles on top that have popped. Flip and cook for an additional minute. Serve with the remaining cut strawberries, maple syrup, and the rest of the rosé. Charge your friends and family. Start accepting brunch reservations BUT TELL EVERYONE YOU'RE BOOKED SOLID.
