This is the perfect recipe to surprise that special someone, or for those sad winter mornings, or simply because you feel like it. Or because next Sunday is Mother’s Day!
And in this first year that the day becomes so special to me, I dedicate this recipe to all women who love their children no matter what, who always find a smile for them even in the most difficult days, who have to have two jobs, who wake up early to be able to do everything , and even when nothing goes well, can still be good mothers!
Happy Mother’s Day!

250g plain flour

In a pan put the sliced strawberries and the sugar. Let it boil for 4 minutes. Mash in the blender and set aside (preferably to cool off completely).
In a bowl place the liquid ingredients: the melted butter, milk, vanilla and the egg. Mix and set aside.
In another bowl combine the dry ingredients and gradually add the liquid mix, stirring with a spoon to get an uniform mixture.
Heat a frying pan and grease with some margarine only when necessary.
Place spoonfuls of the preparation, and cook for 1 minute on each side (for a tablespoon at a time).
