What are Strawberry Pancake Bites?

Strawberry Pancake Bites are exactly what they sound like: miniature versions of the classic breakfast favorite. But instead of plain pancakes, each bite is packed with fresh strawberries.

Pancakes have a long and impressive history, dating back to ancient Rome. The concept of miniaturized pancakes, however, likely emerged sometime in the late 20th or early 21st century, fueled by our love for bite-sized treats and convenience. These days, the internet is filled with variations of mini pancakes, showcasing the versatility of this fun and easy recipe. Swap the strawberries for other fruits like blueberries or bananas, or add chocolate chips. They're perfect for portion control, making them a guilt-free indulgence…IF you can stop yourself from eating them all!


  • Don't overmix your batter! Overmixing creates tough pancakes. Aim for a few lumps – that's where the fluffiness comes from.
  • Fresh, ripe berries are essential. Underripe strawberries won't have the sweetness you crave, and overripe ones might turn mushy during cooking.
  • Cook your pancake bites over medium-low heat. This allows them to cook through evenly without burning the outside.
  • Look for bubbles forming on the surface of the batter. When the bubbles appear and start to pop, it's time to flip your pancake bites.
  • The perfect pancake bite is a beautiful golden brown on both sides. Don't be afraid to peek under them once they start to look golden!

How to Store Strawberry Pancake Bites 

Strawberry Pancake Bites are best enjoyed fresh for the fluffiest texture and brightest flavor. The strawberries can release moisture over time, affecting the texture of the pancake.

For short-term storage, allow the pancake bites to cool completely, then place them in an airtight container with a paper towel lining the bottom (the paper towel will absorb any excess moisture). Refrigerate for up to 2 days.


2 eggs
190g (3/4 cup)
Maple syrup
5g (1 tsp)
Vanilla Extract
All-purpose flour
125g (1 cup)
Baking powder
8g (3/4 tbsp)

How To Make Strawberry Pancake Bites

Wash and hull your strawberries. Slice them into thin rounds or bite-sized pieces, depending on your preference. Set them aside for a fruity surprise.

In a large bowl, crack your eggs and whisk them together with the yogurt, maple syrup, and a touch of vanilla essence. This will add a touch of sweetness and warmth to your pancakes.

Then, sift in the all-purpose flour and baking powder. Don't worry about lumps – a few lumps are actually a good thing, they'll contribute to the fluffy texture of your pancake bites!

Get ready to coat your strawberries! Coat the sliced strawberries with the batter, ensuring they get a nice even coating.

Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Once hot, carefully spoon dollops of batter onto the pan, leaving a little space between them for spreading.

Cook the pancake bites for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they're golden brown and cooked through.

Drizzle your pancake bites with warm maple syrup, add a dollop of whipped cream, or sprinkle with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
