Baby Pancake Recipe

Raffy is a BIG fan of pancakes and as I always mention on my social channels, I try to vary his breakfasts a lot by offering a range of options from porridge to cereals to toasts to eggs and also pancakes most weeks!

Baby Pancake RecipeHowever, one request I get probably most frequently is to share my pancake recipe and although it’s on my social pages, I wanted to write a blog and have somewhere to send people directly.

I also love creating recipes for pancake toppings, and am a massive believer that they don’t need to be sweet all the time. If you’d like some pancake topping recipes, I’ll look to post some over the next few weeks, but some of the ideas I love to use with Raffy include scrambled eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes, yogurt, berries and peanut butter and also mixed beans.

I’ll post pancake topping recipes too over the next few weeks or so, so keep your eyes peeled for those.

For now, these are the recipes I use for Raffy’s pancakes. One is a vegan option and one contains dairy. I also have a traditional English pancake recipe too, as the first two are recipes for American pancakes (I find these easier to offer him with a variety of toppings!)

Let me know if you make them and how you find them too!

Serves around 10

Ingredients:

250g self-raising wholegrain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 free range egg
300mls of milk
A little drizzle of oil for the pan

Optional –
A few handfuls of blueberries

Method:

Sift the wholegrain self-raising flour into a large bowl with the baking powder and make a well in the middle (you may need to press some of the grains through the sieve with a spoon).

In a separate jug crack the egg and whisk it together with the milk. Add the milk mixture to the well in the middle of your flour and whisk the whole mixture together until you have a smooth batter. Set the mixture aside.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a saucepan and, once hot, add a thick dollop of your pancake mixture into the middle of the pan.

Dot a few of the blueberries on top of the mixture as it cooks and once it’s browning nicely, flip your pancake and cook it on the other side.
