We are huge fans of pancakes in our house and they are a regular on the menu.
We often have pancakes for breakfast; favouring the thick, fluffy variety; and accompanying them with maple syrup, crispy bacon and scrambled eggs. When in Rome and all that :)
They also appear on the dinner menu once every couple of weeks; served with fresh fruit (and scooshy cream!).
When it comes to Pancake Tuesday, pancakes aren’t really a treat anymore!
But I couldn’t bring myself to let the day pass without making pancakes, I just had to do something to make them a little bit special for the kids.
So… meet our pig pancakes!
The boys thought they were great, although I do think the 7yo wondered what had got into me!
Anyway, I’m now thinking about what animal I can do next, a sheep or a cow maybe… :)
The pancake recipe I use is very basic, more of a ratio of ingredients multiplied as necessary!
1 to 2 cup(s) flour [depending on whether I want thin crepes or thick fluffy pancakes; for my pig pancakes I went for 1 cup!]
1 cup water
Although I generally use a pancake flour mix; in this case a buttermilk one from Trader Joes; for a better flavour.
Add to that some sliced banana, chocolate chips, scooshy cream, and pink cake sprinkles and, voila, you have pig pancakes!
What kind of pancakes did you have yesterday?
