It’s all very well doing fun things with our kids, but how do we turn everyday chores into EPIC adventures? How do we take the stress out of guiding our children?
There’s loads you can do to make your favourite pancakes more interesting. Forget lemon and sugar, why not add a chocolate cookie and make a pancake burger. Or go savoury and create a pancake pizza. The possibilities are endless…
What you will need
Ready? Let's build a burger!
Colour the coconut with green food colouring to make it look like lettuce. Colour one bowl of icing sugar with red food colouring, and another with yellow to make your ‘ketchup’ and ‘mustard’.
Melt a little chocolate and spread onto a pancake. Press a cookie on top. Then add a little more chocolate, and another cookie. These are your burgers!
Drizzle over your icing sugar sauces, sprinkle on the coconut ‘lettuce’ and finish with a pancake ‘bun’. You can even add a few sesame seeds if you have any to make it look authentic. Bon appetite!
Firstly, choose whether you are going to make a savoury or sweet pancake pizza. If you choose sweet, cover a pancake in strawberry jam or chocolate spread. If you choose savoury, try tomato puree.
For a sweet pizza, sprinkle grated white chocolate on top of the jam or chocolate spread. For a savoury pizza, sprinkle grated cheese over the tomato puree.
Finish off your pizza with your favourite toppings. Sweet pizzas are great with chocolate buttons, jelly babies or chocolate beans. Savoury pizzas taste brilliant with ham, mushrooms, pepperoni or peppers.
