Add a twist to your pancakes this Pancake Day with an innovative new Balsamic & Strawberry dressing from award-winning family business Mammy Jamia’s.
The dressing, priced at £2.95 RRP and available in Waitrose stores and on Waitrose.com, is the perfect accompaniment to strawberries this Pancake Day (February 9th). A great alternative to maple syrup, the balsamic vinegar intensifies the colour and flavour of the strawberries, making a sweet yet tangy dish.
Mammy Jamia’s, best known for their premium preserves, launched back in 2010. They have launched a total of three new dressings and their exciting and innovative products are based on a family recipe made by Mammy Jamia herself.
Sophie Cairns of Mammy Jamia’s said: “We are delighted to launch our Balsamic and Strawberry dressing just in time for Pancake Day.
“It’s a wonderfully fresh and tasty product that is so versatile; it can be used in a whole host of dishes. If you’re looking to try something new this Pancake Day, our Strawberry Pancakes are perfect. This recipe is one of my favourites – it also works well all year round as a breakfast dish!”

Mammy Jamia’s Balsamic & Strawberry Dressing
As many strawberries as you like!
Chop up the strawberries, put them in a bowl and cover with Mammy Jamia’s Balsamic & Strawberry Dressing. Leave to marinade whilst cooking the pancakes.
- Sift the baking powder, flour, caster sugar and salt into a large bowl. In a separate jug or bowl, whisk together the egg and milk, then the melted butter.
- Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture then, using a fork, beat until mixture turns into a smooth batter. Leave the batter to stand for a few minutes.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. Once melted, add a ladle of batter (this will seem thick but is just as it should be).
- Once the top of the pancake begins to bubble, turn over and cook until both sides are golden brown. You’ll know when the pancake is done as it will have risen to about 1cm (1/2in) thick.
- To serve, add a thick layer of Greek yoghurt to your pancake. Scoop the marinated strawberries out of the bowl, arrange these on top of your pancake and enjoy!
