If you need a gentle reminder, tomorrow (9th February) is Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day.

I do love Pancakes, whether they are sweet or savoury, they are delicious and a real treat? The only down side if that you can only make one or two (if you have two frying pans) at a time and you have to keep your eye on them as they cook, I am always looking for different recipes and thought this one was a great idea, it’s perfect if you have a large family as you can make a few trays at once, which they will all be ready in approx. 10 minutes.

This recipe and photograph is taken from the website of Booths who are a chain of family owned independent quality food and drink stores that are based in the North West.


Pancake Mini Muffins

Mini Pancake Bites


  • Vegetable Oil for greasing
  • 125g plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 60ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 25g butter melted


  • Chocolate chips
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4.
  2. Grease a 12 hole mini muffin tin lightly with the vegetable oil.
  3. Place the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sugar in a bowl.
  4. Crack the egg into a jug and whisk with the milk, maple syrup and melted butter.
  5. Pour this egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk in well until you have a smooth, thickened batter.
  6. Fill each muffin hole a third full with the mixture.
  7. Push your chosen fillings into the mixture.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes until golden and puffed up.
  9. Tip out and serve warm with a maple syrup dip, cream, ice cream, yoghurt, crème fraiche, custard, or a squeeze of lemon or orange juice, sprinkle with caster sugar or drizzle with syrup or honey.

This amount of mixture will make 12 mini pancakes.

I will definitely give this one a try; it’s an easy, fast way to make delicious treats, why not have a go at making them at School?

Happy Pancake Day
