SMARTIES® Pancake Recipe in Easy Steps

  1. 1

    In a large bowl, gently whisk the flour and baking powder together.

  2. 2

    Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and break the egg into it.

  3. 3

    Pour in half the milk then whisk the ingredients together. Add the remaining milk and continue to whisk until combined.

  4. 4

    Carefully heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and coat the pan with the coconut oil.

  5. 5

    Place a heaped tablespoon of batter into the pan. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface then flip and cook the other side until golden. Repeat until you have 16 pancakes.

  6. 6

    Now to decorate! Cut banana and strawberries thinly and start by adding 2 slices of banana to the top of the pancake to start creating the ‘eyes’.

  7. 7

    Add 2 SMARTIES® Milk Chocolate Buttons on top of banana. Then place 1 SMARTIES® in the middle to create the ‘nose’.

  8. 8

    Add 2 strawberry slices just below the banana to create the ‘wings’ of the owl.

  9. 9

    Finish off by adding blueberries and SMARTIES® around the edge of the plate.
