Homemade pancakes and strawberry sauce

Owl Momma and the owlettes were over at the house. I had just prepared some batter for pancakes when they arrived. I mentioned to Owl Momma that pancakes are my nemesis - they never turn out. They are either burnt on the outside and mushy on the inside, or just never cook. So, she gave me a lesson in pancake making (although would not vouch for the taste as I did not use her "perfect pancake" recipe - which she needs to give me if she expects me to use it...hint, hint).

Then, I realized I had nothing to put on the pancakes so I grabbed:

1 bag of frozen strawberries
1/4 cup sugar (or more to taste)
1/4 cup water

Put it all in a pot and boiled it down until the berries were mushy. Then, I used the immersion blender and blended it up. Let it reduce down some more and then put it on the pancakes.



  1. OK, well, unless Owl Momma has MY pancake recipe, I truly doubt she has the perfect one.


  2. Hmm, do I sense a pancake smack-down about to happen?

  3. Dawn and I should totally have a smack down! :) I will bring you a perfect pancake recipe (which may not be as good as Dawn's... Dawn makes fabulous pancakes) on a pretty recipe card and everything!

  4. I think smack down is too strong of a word. How about friendly competition??
