In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a smaller bowl beat the egg slightly, add milk, vanilla and 3 tablespoons of oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until flour is moistened (clumps are okay!).
Heat non-stick frying pan over medium-high and brush lightly with oil.
Pour batter by ¼ cupfuls onto hot pan, making three or four pancakes at a time. Top each with strawberry slices and then cook until edges look slightly dry. Turn and cook other side until golden.
Keep warm in oven or on warming plate. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve, strawberry side up with butter, maple syrup, yogurt and more fresh fruit.
