200 g Golden Cloud Self-raising Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp golden castor sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
200 ml milk
25 g melted butter, plus extra for frying
Red, yellow, green and blue gel food colouring (or other colours)
To serve (optional):
Whipped cream or ice cream
- Put all the pancake ingredients, except the dye, in a bowl and mix well with a whisk until smooth. Divide the batter into 5 bowls or disposable cups. Use the food colouring to dye 4 of them a different colour, leaving one plain.
- Melt a small knob of butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat. Once foaming put spoonfuls of the pancake batter into the pan and shape into 4-5cm circles with the back of your spoon, you should have enough to make 4 pancakes from each coloured batter.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes then flip over and cook the other side for another minute or until cooked through and ever so slightly golden.
- Stack the pancakes so that everyone gets one of each colour. Serve with fresh fruit, cream or ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup if you like.
