I make these pancakes quite often on school mornings. I’ll get up earlier than the rest of my family and make them -I love to bake in a quiet house and they love to wake up to  warm, fluffy pancakes for breakfast.

These pancakes are stuffed with strawberry jelly and when you cut into them it comes oozing out. You might be asking yourself “how do they get stuffed?” It’s a very simple technique much easier than you think.

When you’re cooking the pancakes you start with a regular spoonful of pancake batter.

Then add a spoon of strawberry jelly to the centre. You then cover it up with more batter on top of the jelly and when it is cooked flip it over just like a regular pancake.

When eating the pancakes I would suggest cutting them like a pizza so that you get a bit of jam in every bite.
