I’m always on the look out for new breakfast ideas for a bit of a change from cereal and toast. Pancakes are the perfect choice because they are made from three ingredients that you tend to have in and take minutes to prepare. I usually have mine with sugar and raspberry jam (I have a very sweet tooth) but for the little ones you can stick to fruit based toppings.
This recipe is taken from the BBC Good Food website. They suggest semi skimmed milk whereas with baby recipes you usually always use full fat milk. Not really sure whether full fat milk would alter the pancakes or not.
This recipe is so easy and went down a treat. We even had some for dessert the next day!
- 100g plain flour
- 2 eggs
- 300ml milk (I used semi skimmed as we had more of that leftover and the recipe suggests it)
How to make
- Mix all the ingredients into a batter
- You can rest the batter for 30 minutes if time but this recipe says you don’t really need to
- Decide on your toppings. I chopped up a few strawberries and added a few tablespoons of water and warmed them over a low heat to create a sort of syrup
- Heat up a frying pan
- Pour one ladle’s worth of batter into the frying pan
- Cook each side for one minute
- Flipping optional!
- Once cooked you can layer the pancakes between baking paper and wrap in cling film to freeze
