Pancake Art with the Kids

This pancake Tuesday why not get the kids involved and try some of our easy pancake art.  Whether this week is half term or you are still in the midst of home schooling this is a quick and fun activity to keep the kids (and adults) entertained for the morning!

These are just some of our ideas but I’m sure you can come up with a few better ones!

What you will need…

Pancake mix recipe:

  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 330ml milk
  • 1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
  • pinch of salt

Pancake topping ingredients

For decorations:

We have suggested to ingredients for decorations but this is where you can choose what your kids like or what you already have in the house.

  • banana
  • blueberries
  • orange
  • Strawberries
  • chocolate spread and/or chocolate buttons
  • lots of patience 🙂

Method:

  1. Put all your ingredients in to a large bowel and whisk to a smooth batter.  Add milk gradually to avoid lumps.
  2.  Set aside for 30 minutes to rest if you have time.
  3. Set a frying pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some buttered or oiled kitchen paper.
  4. When the pan is hot, ladle or spoon pancake portions onto the pan.  Wait until you start to see bubbles on the top of the mix before flipping over.
  5. Either keep warm in a low oven or leave to cool – layer pancakes between baking paper to stop them sticking together.

Now the fun can start – decorating your pancakes.  We have some suggestions here for fun animal shapes that you might want to do.
