Winter is here, which means pancake season is in full swing! Keep it interesting with these fun and quirky kid-friendly twists on the traditional pancake-with-cinnamon that you used to eat as a child:
- Add a dash of food colouring to the batter to make colourful pancakes or dot the colouring directly into the batter in the pan to decorate each individual pancake.
- Spread the pancake with chocolate spread and roll up a banana in the pancake before slicing into wheels.
- Make pancake muffins! Simply add an extra teaspoon of baking powder to your usual pancake recipe and pour the batter into muffin tin instead. Bake at 180°C for 15 to 18 min or until risen and golden brown.
- Make a pancake cake by stacking the pancakes on top of one another and spreading peanut butter or cream in between the layers. Slice and serve in wedges like you would a normal cake.
- For a sweet-savoury treat, dip crunchy strips of bacon in pancake batter and cook in the pan until golden. Serve with syrup or honey.
- Make pancake-pops by laying down a lollipop stick in the pancake blob as soon as it hits the pan.
- Make quirky “pattern” pancakes by drizzling the batter into the pan instead of swirling it, and then letting it set in that shape.
- Place non-stick cookie cutters in the pan and drop the batter in there to make happy shapes.
