Today, the 13th of February, also marks National Pancake Day! So here at Childsmart we are celebrating by compiling a list of our favourite Pancake recipes and tips for the entire family to enjoy!
This classic pancake recipe has always been a delicious family favourite and with only four ingredients it’s super easy to make from items already in your fridge and pantry. Simply combine an egg, a cup of self-raising flour and milk into a large mixing bowl until combined and gently stir through fresh blueberries. Cook in a large frying pan on a medium heat flipping once when bubbles begin to appear on the top of the pancake or until golden.
Try serving with yoghurt and fresh fruit for a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream and icing sugar.
Banana and Oat Pancakes
Banana and oat pancakes are another yummy and healthy treat the little ones will absolutely love! Finding a delicious and healthy recipe is not always easy, so we love this simple method that uses limited ingredients and a blender to make a banana batch of pancake goodness.
Combine bananas, oats, eggs and baking powder into a blender and mix until smooth, leaving to stand for 10-15 minutes will also help the mixture to thicken slightly. These taste fantastic served with a dash of maples syrup and fresh seasonal fruit!
Greek Yoghurt Pancakes
The fluffier the pancake the better when it comes to Sunday breakfasts and we love this recipe that uses Greek Yoghurt to create some of the softest most delicious pancakes ever! Simply mix together wet ingredients including, eggs, yoghurt and milk into a bowl, before adding flour and baking powder. These are fantastic healthier option that the whole family can enjoy.
