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.

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?

For complete indulgence on Pancake Day, why not make a Pancake Cake?

Follow our recipe below to make your pancakes.  Then make a pile of pancakes, spreading your favourite fresh fruit and honey between the layers.  Make into a deep cake and cut into slices.

…Also good with fresh strawberries and cream.  Alternatively try fresh berries, creme fraiche and a drizzle of chocolate sauce…yum! 

Ingredients for the Pancakes

300ml of full-fat milk
2 medium eggs
125g plain flour
25g melted butter
Extra butter to cook the pancakes with


  1. Pour the milk into a jug, add the eggs and beat well.
  2. Place 125g plain flour into a bowl and make a hollow in the centre
  3. Gradually pour the egg and milk mixture into the centre of the flour, whisking just in the centre as you pour.
  4. Keep whisking so you gradually draw in the flour from the outside of the bowl – this will hopefully keep your mixture lump free!
  5. When the flour is fully mixed in, whisk the melted butter into the batter, cover the bowl and put in the fridge to rest for half and hour or a few minutes if you are short of time!
  6. Heat frying pan on a medium heat
  7. Add small amount of butter and let it melt to cover the base of the pan
  8. Give the batter mix a quick whisk
  9. Ladle some batter into the pan, and tilt the pan so the batter mix covers the base
  10. Put the pan back onto the heat and leave to cook for 1–2 minutes.
  11. Flip the pancake when the underside is golden brown
  12. Remove the pancake from the heat when both sides are golden brown
  13. Repeat until you have enough pancakes for your cake!
  14. Add your favourite toppings and enjoy
