From 1900 to today: the world's worst weather
No matter where we live, we are ultimately all affected by the weather. Over the last 100 years, the world has witnessed some extraordinary elements, from bone-chilling blizzards and hurricane-force winds, to devastating droughts and biblical-style floods. Here, we take a look back at some of the most dramatic, deadly, rare and wonderful weather events that hit the world, and the news, between 1900 and now.
Get Started on the Steeping Mixture
The base for the maple-molasses strawberries starts with pure maple syrup, unsulphured molasses, unsalted butter, and a pinch of kosher salt. Add it all to a large saucepan and cook it over medium until the butter is melted and the mixture is bubbling.
Prep the Strawberries
You can hull strawberries with a, but if you want to make your job a little easier, try this Mad Genius tip from Justin. All you need is a drinking straw—insert it into the bottom of each strawberry and push up until the hull on top pops out.

Make the Pancake Batter
With the strawberries done, it's pancake time. You'll first whisk together the dry ingredients—all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and kosher salt—in one bowl, and the wet ingredients—eggs, whole milk, sourdough starter, and melted unsalted butter—in another. Then, pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredient mixture and stir until just combined. Justin says that you don't want the batter to be "totally smooth," so don't sweat it if there are a few clumps.
Flip and Serve
Heat up youror griddle over medium-high, and grease it with butter so your pancakes don't stick. Then, scoop either a heaping 1/4 cup or scant 1/3 cup of batter into the pan to form each pancake—Justin says to fit as many as you can in the pan without the pancakes touching. Cook them for a minute and a half to two minutes until bubbles appear on top, and then, flip them and cook for about another minute or two.
The finished pancakes should come out of the pan golden-brown. To serve them, stack 'em and pour on the strawberries, making sure to get that maple-molasses-strawberry situation in every bite.
