Oat pancakes with roasted strawberries

Frank says, ‘If you have children, as I do, it’s great to get them involved adding flour and milk and cracking eggs; sure, the odd egg hits the floor, or milk spills on the bench, but that’s half the fun.’ We say, ‘!!!’

Fresh from the garden: strawberries
Recipe source: Frank Camorra in the Sydney Morning Herald
Serves: 8 or 24 tastes

Equipment:

  • Measures – jug, cup, ½ cup, tablespoon, teaspoon
  • Small roasting tray
  • Sifter or sieve
  • Bowls – large, medium
  • Fork, metal spoon
  • Scales
  • Non-stick frying pan
  • Ladle, tea towel
  • Plate & paper towel
  • Serving plates
Ingredients:

Pancakes:

  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1½ cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Strawberries:

  • 2 punnets strawberries
  • 100g raw sugar
  • 100ml Canadian maple syrup

What to do:

  • Preheat oven to 200C. Pour the milk over oats and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Wash strawberries and carefully hull them with a small knife. Mix them with the raw sugar and syrup. Pour into a small roasting tray and roast in oven for 15 minutes, until soft and juice starts to come out of strawberries.
  • After the 10 minutes for the oats is up, add sugar, oil and egg and beat with a fork. Sift in remaining dry ingredients and stir to form a smooth batter. If necessary, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to thin mixture.
  • Place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan and add a couple of separate large ladlefuls of the mixture and cook for 2 minutes each side, turning once, or until golden brown on both sides. Remove to a plate and keep warm with the folded tea towel. You may need to wipe the frying pan out a few times with paper towel and re-oil.
  • When all pancakes are cooked, divide among serving plates. Remove the strawberries from the oven and spoon over the pancakes.

Notes: What other fruits could be roasted this way? What is maple syrup?
