We were very lucky when we rented this house to inherit a gorgeous bed of strawberries that our landlords [who are gardeners!] started.
They kept telling us “You’re going to have gobloads of strawberries soon!”
I thought..I’ll believe it when I see it. And see it I did!
I went out scavenging for breakfast this morning when I realized there were pops of red hidden in the green
And I came out with a huge bowl of super ripe berries!
I like strawberries just plain, but my favorite way to eat them is when they are cooked. In a pie or cobbler..or buckwheat bake!
So I got my batter on, then my microwave on and came out with an overflowing mini strawberry buckwheat pie
NOTE: Whole eggs work great in baked buckwheats, but microwave versions are best with flax eggs!! The egg took much longer to cook and created too much volume. I’d recommend a flax egg for the microwave. And less strawberries unless you want a mess!
