12 (4-inch) pancakes
15 Min
20 Min
Stove Top



1 lb
strawberries (about 4 cups) hulled, halved, quartered if large
1/4 c
kosher salt
vanilla bean, split lengthwise


1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
3 Tbsp
1 tsp
kosher salt
1 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
2 large
1 3/4 c
3/4 tsp
vanilla extract
3 Tbsp
unsalted butter, melted (plus more for pan and serving)
1/4 c
toasted sliced almonds, optional


1Roast the strawberries:
Preheat oven to 425°F. Place strawberries, sugar, and salt in a glass baking dish. Scrape in vanilla seeds, add pod, and stir to combine. Roast, stirring occasionally, until juices are bubbling, 15-18 minutes. Let cool slightly and discard pod.
2Make the pancakes:
Whisk flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Beat eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and 3 Tbsp. melted butter in a medium bowl with a fork to incorporate eggs. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
3Heat a large griddle or 2 cast-iron or nonstick skillets over medium; brush with butter. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and pop, and the underside is golden brown, 2 1/2-3 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned on the bottom, 2 1/2-3 minutes more. Transfer pancakes to plates or a platter and brush tops with butter. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing griddle with butter as needed.
4Serve pancakes topped with roasted strawberries and sprinkled with almonds, if desired.
5Cooks' Note
