It’s the Autumn school holidays in New Zealand. This means for the next two weeks I’ll have two children constantly saying ‘Muuuum, I’m hungry!’ Constantly. I throw bananas, apples, sandwiches, toast, carrots at them (figuratively). They’re still hungry. This situation calls for Bleating-Children-Pancakes. Which is why I’m keeping this post under the ‘livestock’ category.

This Alison Holst recipe is a real ‘stick to your ribs’ hotcake-style pancake which fills little tummies up, and requires no fancy ingredients. We usually have it with maple syrup and bananas or fruit salad. You can see in the photo that this morning we had it with leftover jelly. The kids think jelly is a massive treat. They don’t realise it costs .79c on special. Please don’t tell them, it’s a great bribery tool.

  • Put 1.25C flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, half teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons sugar in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, melt 2-3 tablespoons melted butter, add 1 cup milk and 1 egg, beat until combined.
  • Gently stir everything until just combined.
  • Bung a bit of butter in a pan and cook ’em.

I recommend doubling the recipe for more than 4 people, or if you’re quite hungry.
