Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes


8 sweet and savory strawberry-filled recipes that make the most of the season

Nothing says spring better than a basket of ripe, in-season strawberries. A farmers market favorite, it’s easy to find yourself with more of these juicy little guys than you know what to do with. We recommend displaying them in a beautiful basket or better yet, cooking with them!

Here are eight strawberry-filled recipes that will satisfy your springtime sweet tooth.

Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes
Have your cheesecake and eat it too — for breakfast! Pairing strawberries with rich cheesecake pancakes gives this sweet breakfast treat a beautiful aromatic flavor, perfect as the centerpiece for a late weekend brunch board.

Peanut Granola with Strawberries
For a healthy way to start the day without sacrificing flavor, this protein-packed granola will give you a good energy boost with the perfect amount of sweetness thanks to fresh strawberries and a healthy drizzle of honey. Be sure to take the time to make the granola from scratch — the result is a deep, toasty flavor that will outshine any store-bought version.

Carolina Gold Rice Pudding with Strawberries
This recipe uses Carolina Gold, a medium-grain, aromatic rice from the South Carolina low country, which gives this pudding its creamy, starchy consistency. Feel free to use it in place of any recipe that calls for Arborio rice, from risotto to fried fritters.

Cornmeal Crepes with Strawberries and Clabbered Cream
Crepes get a thoroughly Southern makeover thanks to switching out flour for cornmeal, which gives these fluffy crepes a tasty mouthfeel and deeper flavor, and topping it off with homemade clabbered cream. This one-time staple of a rural Southern larder is a thick, yogurt-like spread that’s perfect for dolloping on crepes, mixed into smoothies, or served simply with some leftover strawberries and honey.

Strawberry-Spinach Salad With Pecans and Blue Cheese
For a break from all that sugar, try adding the fruit to a your favorite salad — or perhaps this rapid-quick recipe that also includes angy blue cheese, verdant spinach and crunchy nuts. Not as crazy about blue cheese? Try feta for something just as salty and creamy, but with a little less funk.

Angel Berry Pie
Called angel pie, heavenly pie or the admittedly less seductive upside-down meringue pie, this dessert is simply a meringue base, filled with cream, fruit, curds and (occasionally) syrups. Whatever you call it, the pantry-ingredient pie is the perfect no-fuss recipe for dressed-up occasions and celebrations or simply as a slice of something sweet with your evening nightcap.

Summer Berry Pudding
For when you find yourself with more fresh fruit than you can handle, this traditional English dessert has you covered. Although it is tempting to tuck in once assembled, it’s best to let this puddling set in the fridge for optimal sweet summery goodness.

Strawberry Milkshakes
Who can say no to a frothy, ice-cold glass of milkshake — especially when it’s pink? Top off this spring-in-a-glass drink with some homemade whipped cream, found in this extra strawberry-filled recipe.
