Pancake Ideas for Toddlers
So its Pancake day tomorrow Feburary 17th so how about instead of getting the glue and glitter out, you take a moment to have some fun with your little ones in the kitchen this time and make something fun with pancakes and for the clean up? you sit back and eat them, what could get better than that!
To start with here is a basic pancake recipe for you (makes about 12 small pancakes)
100g white plain flour
1 teaspoon olive oil (plus more for greasing the pan)
Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and break in the egg.
Add a little milk and stir gently. Add the rest of the milk slowly and stir until smooth. Stir in the water and oil and beat for one minute.
(If you have an electric whisk bung all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until you have a smooth batter).
Heat a drop of oil in an omelette pan. When the pan is really hot, pour in about 3 tablespoons of batter. Cook for just under a minute – using a spatula to keep an eye on how it’s cooking.
Now the fun bit … FLIP IT – or if you find you’re dropping too many, turn it over with the spatula.
Cook the other side for 15 seconds.
Now you have made the pancakes, what about adding a bit of creativity to it? What do you think of these?
