I went with it, choosing something easy, so she could help me. I do, afterall, love to cook!
Welcome to Green Goo Pancakes!
- 1 cup of self raising flour
- 1 tablespoon caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2-1 cup of milk
- a few drops of green food colouring
This is such a simple recipe, that I have used for years and I have no idea where it comes from anymore! Basically mix flour & sugar, make a well in the middle, add egg, a few drops of food colouring, then milk gradually until you get a drippy but not runny mix. Pour into a pan over medium heat and flip when bubbles appear.
I have this recipe written down, so we read through it and followed the instructions. We measured, we talked about what might happen if we used too much flour, or left out the sugar. Mini Miss cracked the egg, stirred and stirred.
Then, fully supervised she poured the mixture into the pan and she was on bubble watch. Once there was plenty of bubbles, she very carefully flipped the pancake and was so very excited when she did it right!
Then, once they were all made came the best part! Making them gooey and colourful!
A drizzle of Pure Maple Syrup and some sprinkles and we had success.
Given that Mini Miss has so many food aversions, I am always excited when she wants to eat something outside her normal comfort zone. These can always be made much more healthily, but we are just taking one step at a time!
Even Mr Moo got into this one, enjoying his first pancake! Just plain for him though. No need for sticky gooey syrup when you are only 6 months old!
