With shrove Tuesday getting closer, I thought it only kind to share our simple pancake recipes.

Saturdays in our house means pancakes, Teddy will often coax us out of bed on a Saturday with a loud reminder to get in the kitchen and get making!  We have a few go-to pancake recipes that we often enjoy .

1.Our go-to simple pancake is an American style pancake.

I have tweaked this recipe several times to cut down on the amount of white sugar used and also baking powder, as despite enjoying a fluffier pancake, we do not enjoy the more claggy taste of too much baking powder.  So here is my own recipe which is delicious served with fruit and maple syrup.

1 1/2 cups of Self Raising Flour                                                                                                       1tsp Baking Powder                                                                                                                               2 Tbsp of Caster Sugar                                                                                                                         1 large egg                                                                                                                                         200ml Milk

Measure the dry mix into a bowl and make a well in the centre and drop the egg in and gradually add in the milk whisking into a thick cream like consistency.  Drop 3/4 of a ladle full onto a hot buttered frying pan. Once plenty of bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake, flip it over and heat the other side for 30 secs to a minute until cooked.  Top tip – Flip the pancake with a flick of the wrist action, rather than using your whole arm.  This limits the leaking of the batter on flipping.  Put the pancakes onto a wire rack to cool and cover with a dry clean tea towel to keep warm.

2. Our simple healthy pancake recipe

A healthier go-to is the more paleo style pancake of just simply mashing one banana with one egg and whisking together to heat in the saucepan (carefully flipping they’re quite fragile) and served with yoghurt, berries and honey/maple syrup, delicious without the guilt.  And often I have served this one for lunch and it makes a great toddler weaning meal.

3. Another favourite pancake recipe

Lastly a healthier more everyday go-to simple pancake recipe we all enjoy are Lisa’s Incredible Hulk Pancakes, easy to whip up in a blender, the oats make such a smooth consistency and leave you feeling like you’re set up for the day.  Also perfect for when you feel that you need to add in some extra goodness and handy for fussier eaters.  These also make a good snack.
