Tuck Into Strawberries and Cream for Wimbledon

You can’t have Wimbledon without strawberries and cream. Every year during the event, people munch their way through roughly 28,000kg of juicy English strawberries. Even if you don’t have tickets to the tennis, you can still enjoy a taste of summer sweetness with Nielsen-Massey’s Strawberry and Vanilla Cream Pancake recipe below.

This recipe, made using Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract, arguably the best vanilla extract in the world, gives the old time favourite combination a refreshing twist. The indulgent vanilla cream complements the fresh tartness of the strawberries, which sit on a blanket of fluffy pancakes. This recipe is a winner - game, set and match!


Sieve the flour into a bowl and whisk together with the eggs

Slowly whisk in the milk making sure you disperse any lumps

Heat a little lard in a large frying pan and tip to cover the whole surface, when sizzling, add a ladle of pancake mix, move the pan so the mix covers the whole surface

Cook for a minute on one side and then flip or turn over with a palette knife and brown on the other side

Remove from the pan onto a plate and place a square of greaseproof on top, repeat until all the mixture has been used

Whip the cream and add Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract

Chop strawberries, raspberries or blueberries into desired sizes

Choose a pancake add a generous spoon of cream plus a generous hand full of fruit and fold in half

Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
