[step-item number=”1″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Make the batter. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the egg and vanilla extract, if using. Pour in a little of the milk, then beat the egg lightly until it is mixed with the milk and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture and pour in the remaining milk a little at a time. Before all the milk is added and while the mixture is quite thick, beat well to remove all the lumps, then gradually beat in the remaining milk to make a smooth batter.[/step-item] These are the best brunch spots across the U.S.

[step-item number=”2″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Cook the pancake. Preheat the broiler to the hottest setting. Melt the butter in a frying pan that can safely be used under the broiler (cover a wooden handle with foil). Swirl the butter around the pan, then pour in the batter and cook over a medium heat until the pancake is golden underneath. The batter should have risen and almost set on top. The surface will break into little bubbles.[/step-item]

[step-item number=”3″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Finish under the broiler. Slide the frying pan under the broiler and cook for 1 minute. Scatter the strawberries evenly over the pancake. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar, then broil for 3 minutes or until the sugar has melted. Cut into four wedges, decorate with mint, if you like, and serve immediately.[/step-item]
