I love pancakes and they’re also one of Raffy’s favourite foods, always making a bit of a special breakfast for us as a family at weekends. For this reason, I’ve been so keen to get Ada onto pancakes as soon as I could. So, I’ve come up with an even easier baby friendly recipe that’s soft, light and really easy to munch – even for those bubbas just starting with solids. These Raspberry Ripple Pancakes work great for baby led weaning!
This pancake recipe is also slightly different as it’s baked in a tray rather than spending all morning over the stove frying, which is obviously a big bonus. I’ve been using it as a baby led weaning finger food recipe for Ada and a quick breakfast option for Raffy before nursery. It’s also a great on the go snack for older kids.
My existing Baby Pancake Recipe is also perfect for babies and actually one of my most popular recipes to date, so do check this out too if you want a bit of variety. I’ll also be sharing more ideas on pancakes on my Instagram channel, so keep your eyes peeled for those.
Lastly, I have some tasty pancake toppings ideas, both sweet and savoury that might be perfect for your Pancake Day meal, too!
This recipe can be adapted to be no egg (egg free pancakes) and dairy free too. Simply use plant milks instead of dairy milk and/or swap the egg for banana or chia seed eggs (see recipe for this in the middle of this blog on eggs!)
Raspberry Ripple Easy Pancake Sheet
- 250g self raising flour (plain or wholemeal)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 free range egg
- 200mls milk of choice (I used fortified oat milk)
- 2 tbsp plain yogurt (any will work)
- 2 handfuls raspberries (around 100g of fresh or frozen raspberries – feel free to swap raspberries for some other fruit)
- Sift the flour into the bowl and add the baking powder.
- Whisk the egg and milk together and make a well in the middle of the flour. Add the milk and egg to the well.
- Whisk the mixture together and then add a dollop of yogurt and the raspberries.
- Stir the mixture breaking up the raspberries slightly with the back of the spoon (or you can mash the raspberries in really well).
- Add the mixture to a lined baking tray (the mixture will probably only take up half of a tray) and dot the top with some extra fresh raspberries.
- Bake in the oven for around 25 minutes or until the pancake sheet is brown on top. Serve with pancake with a dollop of yoghurt and some berries on top.
I hope you enjoy this pancake recipe. Do tag me on social @SR_Nutrition so I can see your little ones loving them.
