My children love pancakes, I don't make them too often because they like the syrup even more!
Pancakes are the kid's number one birthday breakfast choice but the request is always to have rainbow pancakes!
These are a little bit more work to make but my kids absolutely love them, and what's better is that you can make the batter the night before if you're pushed for time in the morning.
200g self-raising flour
Oil for cooking
Sugarflair colours: Christmas red, ice blue, melon yellow
1. Add the flour to a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Mix the egg and milk in a jug. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and slowly add the milk mix, use an electric hand mixer to beat the mixture until a smooth batter is formed.
2. Divide the batter equally into 5 bowls, colour one with red, one with the red and yellow, one with yellow, one with blue and one with blue and yellow.
3. Heat a tsp of oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Add enough batter to make a pancake roughly 7cm across, don't add too many pancakes to the pan as it will lower the heat. Cook on the first -side until bubbles appear all over the top, flip over the pancake and cook on the second side for 2-3 mins.
