Evil Cream Horns
Dalmatian Pancakes with Strawberry Compote
These delicious pancakes are a riff on Dalmatian cookies, with a vivid red strawberry compote that brings to mind the black, white, and red of Cruella’s classic look, without any of the evil.
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Yield: 8 to 10 pancakes
For the strawberry compote
1 pound strawberries1/2 cup sugar
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
For the pancakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
Nonstick cooking spray
Prepare the strawberry compote. Wash and chop the strawberries, discarding stems and hulls of the fruit. Combine fruit with remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes, until fruit has softened and sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Prepare the pancakes. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients, and stir to combine. Let stand 10 minutes.
Heat a large skillet over medium. O! the burner, spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Drop batter by a 1/4-cup measuring cup into pan, being careful not to crowd the pancakes.
Cook until golden brown and bubbles rise to the surface, about 3 minutes. Flip, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove from heat and transfer to a plate tented with aluminum foil to keep pancakes warm. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve topped with strawberry compote and, if desired, additional white and milk chocolate chips.
