Sweet – #amonthof creative moments

Having a rather sweet tooth, my only interpretation of this prompt is to do a recipe!

Something simple, just to satisfy that sweet craving and fill a spot mid-morning, one so easy that the kids can help.

Termed in our house Mini Pancakes but are actually Dropped Scones.

Mini Pancakes

  • 100g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 50g/2oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4tbsp/60ml milk

Put all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and give it a good mix with a hand whisk, this is great to let the kids do.

Put a drop of oil in a frying pan (griddle) and heat to a medium/low temperature.

Cook 2 or 3 at a time by dropping dessert spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan. Watch until the top is covered in small bubbles, this should take about 2-3 mins.

Flip over and cook on the other side until lightly browned.

Serve with butter or a little syrup straight from the pan.

Makes 8-10. Can be eaten cold.

We love to make these mini pancakes in our house and even have them for breakfast on special days, served with fresh fruit and maple syrup.

Do you make little sweet pancakes like this?

  1. Lovely little recipe – I must try this. We’re a household of standard-sized-pancakes so it’ll be a nice change to do little ones. Do I need a proper griddle pan or will it work the same in a normal frying pan?

    Much love, keep blogging! x
