Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes with Strawberries – Fiesta Friday

Yes, it is that time again folks!  Fiesta Friday!  Hosted by a fellow blogger, The Novice Gardener.  I am feeling a bit under the weather today, so I went with a simple but delicious recipe that is a weekend favorite of ours.  I hope you enjoy!

Strawberry Pancakes

Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes with Strawberries

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


2 cups whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons sugar or splenda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 cups buttermilk

2 eggs

3 tablespoons vegetable oil, can substitute coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract, optional

Ingredients For Strawberry Syrup:

1 cup water

1 cup sugar or splenda

2 cups quartered strawberries



Whisk whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl; pour buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients. Stir just until combined (batter may seem a bit thick).

Heat skillet over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto hot skillet; cook until browned and bubbles appear on top, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned and set in the middle, about 2 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Top with fresh Strawberries or/and Strawberry Syrup and low-fat whip cream if desired.

Directions for Strawberry Syrup:

Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat; stir until sugar is dissolved. Mix strawberries into saucepan and bring to a boil; boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until strawberries are mushy and sauce is thick, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly and poor on top of pancakes.  Remainder of syrup can be strained into a bottle and refrigerated.

    • Thank you! For me, I have to get the batter thick …if I don’t they will not be fluffy. Not sure why… We love Pancakes, they are always a good breakfast treat for us too. Thanks for visiting and commenting!


  1. Sounds wonderful. I also was thinking about the cornmeal pancakes I had at Lake Louise last summer — stacked 3 high, sandwiched around pulled pork, drizzled with maple syrup… oh my gosh! May have to make those this week. Thanks for the reminder and inspiration.


    • You are welcome! Oh my gosh is right, that does sound delicious! We have been trying to eat more fruit and less butter and syrup, but oh how I love that Maple Syrup! Thanks for visiting and commenting on my post.


      • We made them tonight. And Oh My Gosh, yes, as good as it was at Lake Louise! I actually used Bisquick with cornmeal, egg, milk, shredded cheddar, and corn kernels for the pancakes. Pulled pork that was destined for dinner anyway filled them. Jim made hot pepper sauce the other day and we had a touch of that with the barbecue sauce and syrup. Okay, seriously, that may not sound good, but IT WAS!! And because the pork was ready, and the pancakes took a short cut, it was incredibly easy.


  2. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, and so good of you to make these pancakes for us even when you’re feeling under the weather. I absolutely love fluffy pancakes with strawberry topping! Always must have them whenever I go to IHOP. Hmm… I think it’ll be pancakes and strawberries tomorrow. Thanks, Arlene! Feel better! XOXO


  3. These are very fluffy indeed, Arlene! We like to have pancakes for dinner, so this will happen one of these nights, I assure you. Nice to “meet” you at Angie’s party and I hope to see you around more!
