Author: 
Serves: 10-12 pancakes
 
Ingredients
  • 1, 8 oz piloncillo cone
  • 1 pound California strawberries, rinsed and hulled
  • Your favorite whole wheat pancake mix*
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp pepitas
Instructions
  1. Bring piloncillo and 8 ounces of water to a boil in a small pot over medium heat. Using a wooden spoon, move piloncillo so that it begins to break down on each side. Boil until piloncillo cone is completely dissolved, about 10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, chop ½ pound strawberries into cubes. Once piloncillo is completely dissolved, add strawberries and boil for an additional three minutes. Remove from heat. Once slightly cool, strain mixture through a fine sieve and set aside the syrup.
  3. Next, prepare pancakes according to package instructions.
  4. To serve, stack pancakes adding a pat of butter in between each layer. Top with a pat of butter, chopped strawberries, pepitas, and strawberry piloncillo syrup.
