These are truly delicious and not just suitable for babies! These are a treat for the whole family!
One pancake is usually enough to fill a baby but this recipe makes 20. I like to make up a batch, freeze the remaining pancakes and get one out the night before to defrost for a quick and delicious morning breakfast!
This recipe makes 20 baby breakfasts and costs around 15p per pancake!
200g self raising flour,
1 tsp baking powder,
A knob of butter,
Sunflower oil for cooking,
(You can use formula, breast milk or full fat milk in cooking for babies over 6 months)
1. Mix together the flour and baking powder into a large bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, beat together the egg and the milk.
3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg and milk mixture.
4. Mix together to form a smooth, thick batter.
5. Add in the blueberries- if you’re concerned about choking hazard you can blend the blueberries instead of adding them whole, as I do regularly, just to warn you this does create a “blue” pancake which looks quite unappetising! Be assured, it still tastes yummy! and beat in the knob of butter.
6. Heat a teaspoon of oil into a large non stick frying pan, over a medium heat.
7. Drop 2 tablespoons of batter mix into the pan to form roughly a 7cm pancake.
8. Cook for roughly 3 mins until the batter starts to gently bubble, then flip and cook for a further 2 mins until golden.
9. Freeze pancakes separately. To defrost safely, defrost at room temperature overnight.
10. To reheat, either pop in the toaster for a minute or two or place in the oven at 160c for 8 minutes.
For big girls and boys (and adults!) serve with a spoonful of maple syrup or sugar!
If you’re not a blueberry fan or are looking for more variety, why not try chopped up strawberries or raspberries of the same weight?
