Wash the strawberries Then top them and cut them into 1/4 inch slices
Pan brush it with room temperature butter covering the bottom of the pan
Add 1 tbsp of raw sugar or demerara sugar - sprinkled evenly over the pan
Layer the sliced strawberries on the bottom of the pan neatly because when we turn it over it's going to be the top
Next put in a mixing bowl the self-raising flour, salt, and caster sugar. Mix it up with a whisk gently before you start to put in the wet ingredients
Add in the orange zest
Eggs - Whisk up one egg with a fork. Take the other egg and separate the egg white from the yolk. Put the yellow yolk into your egg mix and whisk again
Now it's time to add your wet ingredients to the dry - start by putting in the eggs that you have whisked also and the milk, vanilla extract (use good quality - not essence) and the orange juice keep back about 10% of the orange juice so you can adjust the consistency of the mix.

Take your pan with the strawberries on the bottom and put it on low to medium heat, wait until the butter melts and then pour the pancake batter mix all over. Get it so that it is evenly spread and flat.
Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes on low heat until you see bubbles coming onto the top of the pancake mix.
Then cover the pan with a top so that the steam is trapped inside and cook for a further 1 minute.
The next step is to take your pan and put it in an oven at 300F or 150 C and bake for 15 minutes. Then with a skewer check, the middle of the pancake is dry when you pull out the skewer. If the skewer is dry you're ready if it's still a little bit wet put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes
Finally to brown the bottom of the pancake. Turn on your broil or grill and place the pancake underneath, watch very carefully so that the pancake bottom doesn't burn. This only takes 1 to 2 minutes and you'll get a nice brown bottom of pancake.
Take out and let the pancake cool for about 3 to 4 minutes while you use a spatula to just release the edges of a pancake from the pan.
To turn the pancake, put on a plate to pancake in the pan and invert it and the pancake should come out showing you the beautiful strawberries
When making these pink strawberry pancakes - be sure that the milk and eggs are at room temperature before getting started as then all the cooking times will be correct.

Fold the wet ingredients and dry ingredients together well so that it is smooth and the right consistency - especially if you are making cookie sheet pancakes.
To keep pancakes warm, set your oven to 200F degrees and place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Place them on the baking sheet and put them in the oven to keep warm.

How do You Make Strawberry Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce?
Start with Your Lightly Sweet Strawberry Sauce. To make the strawberry sauce. Add the strawberries (you can also use macerated strawberries with strawberry yogurt) to a saucepan and sprinkle with a little bit of granulated sugar. Simmer for eight to ten minutes stirring gently so it does not burn. Squeeze a tablespoon of lemon juice into the sauce.
To make simple pancakes
Heat a little canola or vegetable oil or cooking spray in a large skillet over medium heat. I like to use my cast-iron skillet. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet. Cook until you see bubbles appear on the surface and the sides are brown and slightly crispy. Flip using a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Serve warm with the fresh strawberry sauce.
What pan is best for cooking pancakes?
My favorite pan I use for cooking pancakes is a cast-iron skillet. This makes the crispy edges so yummy. However, if you like your edges not quite so crispy then you can use a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Also, a stove-top griddle works well too!
Can you substitute other fruit?
Yes, this recipe also works with other fruit even mangos as they slice and cook well.
If you make a sauce with the blackberries and the raspberries, reduce the simmering time for the sauce to about five minutes.
