Strawberry Pancakes

This recipe will please even the pickiest of eaters I promise! My son Augustine, age 3 really loves to bake and cook with me. I asked him if he could make up a recipe and after looking through many cookbooks and our fridge/pantry for ideas he came up with "Strawberry Panpakes!" and this was the result. I made the "panpake" part and he loved, and really ... who wouldn't!?, smashing up all of the strawberries.

Augustine's Strawberry Pancakes
1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder

3 tbsp sugar

3/4 tsp sea salt

2-3 egg yolks, well beaten

2-3 egg whites, stiffly beaten

1 cup milk

3 tbsp melted butter

1 cup smooshed up/pureed strawberries (or any other fruit)

Sift together the first 4 ingredients (whole wheat flour through salt).

Combine and beat the egg yolks, milk and butter. Add this to the flour mixture, blend. Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Add the strawberry puree

Fry on medium hot griddle until bubbles are well-formed around edges of pancakes; turn and cook other side 2 minutes. Or bake in waffle iron if you want a waffle instead of a "panpake". Reheat waffle iron before putting another waffle in each time.

Makes 8 pancakes or 4 waffles.

The directions call for vegetable oil but there isn't any listed in the ingredients? How much does your recipe call for? Thanks!
