Tuck Into Strawberries and Cream for Wimbledon
You can’t have Wimbledon without strawberries and cream. Every year during the event, people munch their way through roughly 28,000kg of juicy English strawberries. Even if you don’t have tickets to the tennis, you can still enjoy a taste of summer sweetness with Nielsen-Massey’s Strawberry and Vanilla Cream Pancake recipe below.
This recipe, made using Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract, arguably the best vanilla extract in the world, gives the old time favourite combination a refreshing twist. The indulgent vanilla cream complements the fresh tartness of the strawberries, which sit on a blanket of fluffy pancakes. This recipe is a winner - game, set and match!
