Pancakes with summer berries & maple syrup

It is nearly time to say goodbye to summer British strawberries that taste their best in May, June and July. These days, however, the British strawberry season extends from mid-April until mid-December, thanks to the use of plastic polytunnels, which provide the berries with a much longer growing season. However I prefer strawberries in the summer, because they taste much better in the summer months than later in the year. I have to indulge myself and somebody I love with tasty, fruity, summery and lazy weekend breakfast while I can.

Makes about 20

1.5 cup of milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups of plain flour, sieved
3 level tsp of baking powder
3 tbsp of caster sugar
tsp of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
butter for frying

Mix the milk with eggs and vanilla extract and add al the dry ingredients, mix with hand mixer until smooth and set aside for about 15 minutes.

Fry the pancakes on the butter on both sides until golden.

Serve with summer berries such as strawberries and blueberries and maple syrup or honey.
