Mini Pancakes 迷你烙饼

Hello! Do you feel like having a stack of warm and fluffy homemade pancake for breakfast?

Pancake is one of the cheapest and easiest choice for homemade breakfast. It's quick, requires little ingredients and allows the kids to be involved in the process of making.

When my little niece & nephew stayed over for the weekend, I prepared the batter and let my niece help cook the pancakes while her brother set up the table with my little boy. Me? Just have to supervise them while I play with my baby girl. ;)

Here's my stack... Sinful amount of wild honey with banana slices.

For my little handsome, mini pancakes with some wild honey, fresh jams or Nutella. Yum... He loved them all :)

Ready to make some? Let's go..

Preparation Time: 8 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Servingfoot: 8 pancakes or 14 mini pancakes

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour, sifted.
3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cup fresh milk
1/2 table spoon sugar
A dash of salt
1 egg
3 table spoons butter, melted
Spoonful of Honey or Maple syrup

For Chocolate Pancake
200g unsweetened / semi-sweetened dark chocolate, melted

Step-by-Step Guides:
1. Melt butter in microwave by putting it on high heat for 30 seconds. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, sift in flour. Add in baking powder, sugar and salt. mix well using a spatula.

3. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture, add the egg, milk and melted butter. Mix well.

4. Heat up olive oil or a lump of butter in a frying pan, scoop 2 big spoonful of batter into the pan. It should form a round pancake of about 6cm in diameter. Cook each side for about 2 min. Set aside on a plate and continue cooking the rest.

To serve, stack up a few pancakes into a pancake tower on a plate, pour a generous amount of honey or maple syrup. Add drops of roasted almond nibs, raisins, banana, peaches pr whatever you fancy for extra fun :)

Making Chocolate Pancake
5. Melt the dark chocolate using same method in step 1 (3 min instead). Scoop a spoonful of melted chocolate on the pancake and spread out well, place another piece of pancake on top. Now you have a mini chocolate pancake. Decorate with strawberry or just serve warm as is! :)

Just take note that...
Honey is not recommended for baby under 1 year old due to potential allergic reaction, so when serving to my baby girl who's currently 15 months old, I just serve the pancake as-is and let her eat with her hands, without any syrup nor jam. She thoroughly enjoyed chewing the pancakes and being able to dine with us. Remember, a happy baby is a healthy baby... ;)
