Pig Pancakes!

20140304-212322.jpg

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
1 egg

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?

  1. Oh wow Sara these look awesome!! I just adore the look on their faces in the first photo too – especially the wee girl! We had bloaty Nutella and banana pancakes, naughty but very very good!

  2. I am so impressed with your amazing pig pancakes. So clever and so cute! My kids would have loved it. I only realized it was pancake day in the afternoon and had already sharing my cinnamon banana recipe that morning. boo. Maybe next year. hahaha I will definitely have to try the pig out too! Thank you so much for joining in Share With Me. I love reading your posts and appreciate the support. ;) #sharewithme

  3. We had pancakes this morning. I happened to have an early morning meeting so didn’t go straight into work as usual, which meant I had more time. Which was a total treat in itself.

    Great idea to make the pancakes special in such a creative way.

    1. Thank you! We quite often have pancakes for breakfast :) Only since we moved to the US though, clearly been influenced!

  4. Ha, this is brilliant! We just had the boring old lemon and sugar with a splash of syrup. I’ve never been very imaginative/creative when it comes to stuff like this – where was pinterest when my kids were small?!

    1. Thank you :) We have pancakes so often that I felt I needed to do something a bit different yesterday!

  5. These are awesome!!! We have pancakes all the time too but I’m ashamed to say I forgot it was pancake day :(
    Guess ill just have to eat an extra one at the weekend :) xx

    1. I almost forgot! And also considered forgetting about it as we’d had pancakes at the weekend, but in the end couldn’t resist doing something silly for the kids :)
