Strawberry Shortcake Stacked Pancakes

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 20, 2011


Our hike yesterday was a good time! A chilly good time. The lovely sunshine disappeared right as we were leaving and I just could not warm up on the hike. My hands were so cold with my thin cotton gloves I had to borrow Eric’s big, black creeper gloves!

A creeper smile seemed fit for the occasion, as it always does! I think I scared a few children along the hike.

We hadn’t been to this trail since Project Food Blog #6: Going The Distance last Fall. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a Vegan Endurance Lunch packed like last time, but I was very happy I didn’t have to worry about all the food photography!


We hiked about 10km, trying to stay out of all the mud which lined the trails. We mostly hiked off-trail for the entire time.


Peak-a-boo, I see you.


Before we left, we fueled up on this Spring-like breakfast of champions.


Meet Strawberry Shortcake Stacked Pancakes.


My favourite way to enjoy pancakes is to stack them and I love to layer pancakes with different kinds of fruit, nut butters, jam, pumpkin butter, etc.

Spiced Up & Stacked Pumpkin Butter Pancakes are a Fall favourite…


Maple Peanut Butter, Banana & Jam Pancake Stack




Banana Pancake ‘Sandwich’


the gooey Blueberry Carob Pancakes


and yesterday, the Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes made their debut. I have been meaning to try out this vegan pancake recipe I saw in Bon Appetit magazine a while back and luckily it did not disappoint!



Strawberry Shortcake Stacked Pancakes

Pancakes adapted from Bon Appetit Spiced Coconut Pancakes.

Yield: 2 servings (8 small pancakes)


  • 1 cup + 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • generous 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • generous 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch or two kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup Coconut Milk (I used regular, not low-fat, but I assume both work)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • Oil, for skillet
  • Strawberry Banana Soft Serve (3 strawberries + 1 frozen banana, processed in food processor)



1. Preheat oven to 250F and grab a baking sheet. Whisk the dry ingredients (flour, coconut, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt) in a medium sized bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (coconut milk, warm water, vanilla, maple syrup) and then add to the dry ingredients. Whisk well until no clumps remain.

2. Preheat the skillet over medium heat and add some oil on the pan. Pour 1/4 cup of batter, per pancake, onto the skillet and quickly smooth out a circle with the back of a spoon. Cook until small bubbles appear on the surface and the bottoms of pancakes are golden. Reduce heat if necessary (I cook them on heat # ‘3’). Transfer to baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.

3. Meanwhile, slice about 20 strawberries. I also made Strawberry Banana soft serve by processing a frozen banana with a few strawberries to make the cream sauce. Once my pancakes were stacked, I scooped the strawberry banana soft serve on top. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve immediately. makes 8 small pancakes.



I sprinkled the pancakes with sweetened coconut and topped them with a scoop of Strawberry Banana Soft Serve as a special treat.

If you don’t want to make the Banana Soft Serve, you could also also make this fun banana coconut maple sauce as shown here:


It might be fun to mash some strawberries in it too!


I think the pictures speak for themselves…these were a big hit! I have plans to make a nut butter version using Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter Banana Soft Serve…with blueberries, perhaps. :)

Clicked on this on Tastespotting and was SO happy when it brought me to your site. Now I can make them and be guilt free. <3 the soft serve on top idea. my kids are huge fans of the soft serve and will eat practically anything if it has some on top.

Sruthi @ Exercise, Food & Beyond March 23, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Those pancakes look amazing. You are too good at photography, the pictures make you want to eat them right now.


Laurel March 23, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Gorgeous! And I am instantly starving after seeing this post! We’re featuring breakfast this week over at the M&T Spotlight and I’d love for you to submit this.


Karly March 23, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Oh my goodness! This looks soooooo good! I could eat this as a breakfast or dessert!! Love the stacks with generous portions of strawberries and syrup! yummy!!


Kathleen @ KatsHealthCorner March 23, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Oh my goodness gracious! These look OUTSTANDING!!!! I absolutely adore your photography!!!!



Emily Darlington Cooke March 24, 2011 at 1:15 pm

These were DELICIOUS! I didn’t have any coconut milk, so I just used soy milk, and I added a few tablespoons of flax seed as well. Thank you for such a decadent yet healthy breakfast!


Angela (Oh She Glows) March 24, 2011 at 2:13 pm



Andrea Schuetz March 26, 2011 at 9:07 am

Those look uhhmaaazing! I will be making them this weekend! :)
Did you use coconut milk in the can, or So Delicious coconut milk? I’m assuming in the can, eh?

Thank you thank you thank you! :)


Andrea Schuetz March 26, 2011 at 9:08 am

Duh! Sorry I just saw the can of coconut milk in the picture! :)


Vivian Leung March 26, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Hi Angela,

Whipped these up to cheer myself up after missing spin class this morning. I’m definitely going to be eating that soft serve by the bowlfull this summer. I even wrote about these in my own food blog. Thanks for sharing, you’re a total genius.


Lee March 27, 2011 at 7:19 am

Ang, your photography is fantastic :)

I Think I need pancakes immediately


Vivian Leung April 4, 2011 at 7:58 pm

Froze the leftover pancakes when I made these and thawed some out today to make my own post-workout ‘stack’. Bananas and Peanut Butter, mmmm. Thanks for a great pancake recipe.


Levon Saunders April 27, 2012 at 4:51 pm

…this makes me feel guilty about every other food choice I’ve made in life with how amazing and delicious these all natural breakfast jewels look.


Sandy May 10, 2012 at 4:14 am

I’m totally in LOVE with your blog.
Thanks for all the wonderful recipes & all your photos (of yourself and your food) always look so grand


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 10, 2012 at 6:56 am

Thank you Sandy!


Patti July 8, 2013 at 11:22 pm

It is 11pm… I am in bed and saw this recipe, and now I am starving and craving pancakes. Can’t wait to try this!


Ciera September 30, 2013 at 12:43 pm

I have made these both according to exact directions (minus the shredded coconut) and also just made them with vanilla almond milk because I didn’t have any coconut milk on hand. Using the almond milk worked fine!!! I also added about a tbsp of soaked flax seeds to see if it worked and made them a little fluffier, and it worked great!!!


Chia October 22, 2013 at 8:35 am

Hi, love your blog- have been reading it for a while now :-) These look fantastic! I’ve tried several of your breakfasts (apple pie oats, the sweet potato oats with the crispy pecan topping, carrot cake oats, etc), all with delicious results- I definitely want to try these pancakes too, but I just have a quick question: is there a specific reason why you use warm water? I’ve never seen a pancake recipe using warm water, and I’m just wondering if I’d been making pancakes wrong all my life, using cold, straight-out-of-the-refrigerator almond milk? Please inform my ignorance! Thanks :-)


liz10101 April 18, 2014 at 6:27 pm

how long does it take to make? the strawberry pancakes?


Anam May 23, 2014 at 6:34 am

I have followed the instructions exactly, yet mine completely failed. They would just stick to the pan and any attempt to turn them over would result in them looking half scrambled. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong!


Angel June 11, 2014 at 1:09 am

Maybe I have a sweet tooth or I just like serving cake to guests, but I would love to see your version of Strawberry Cake.
These pancakes came out great btw!


Sarita October 29, 2014 at 10:28 am

Thank you for all you do to gather such amazing creations for us to try!
My husband gave these pancakes 16 stars! He said “these are some high-end pancakes honey!”.
I halved the recipe to just make enough for myself which ended up being PLENTY.
I did not have strawberries so I used frozen blueberries, 2 scoops of orange sorbet a drizzle of maple syrup and a drizzle of coconut milk for my topping.
I missed the temperature to cook the pancakes, too high. My “circles” were artistic,
Either way this recipe is a KEEPER!
Plus I love how yummy it makes the house smell (bonus)


Nici March 8, 2015 at 12:19 pm

This recipe is frustratingly vague.
If you can manage to peel a frozen banana without your fingers falling off, the smoothie that goes on top of the pancakes isn’t bad.


Hailey June 17, 2015 at 7:26 pm

They look amazing!! But how many calories in a serving of pancakes?


plasterer bristol April 21, 2016 at 12:39 am

These sound so good, gonna give these a go on saturday. Thanks doe sharing.



Angela Liddon April 21, 2016 at 11:13 am

Sounds like the perfect plan for a weekend breakfast. :) Hope you enjoy them, Simon!


NM July 30, 2016 at 10:47 am

My girlfriend and I were extremely excited to make this recipe. We spent $40 on half of the ingredients (we already had half) and came home to find out that this recipe doesn’t make beautiful, delicious strawberry and banana pancakes… It made a coconut MUSH. Extremely disappoint.


Emma October 31, 2017 at 3:23 pm

They look amazing!
Do you by any chance have the nutritional facts please!?


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 1, 2017 at 7:22 am
