Shopping List

Preparation Time:- 15 minutes Cooking Time:- 15 minutes

Remember, a pancake is for life, not just for Shrove Tuesday. These big and fluffy American style pancakes are perfect ANY day.

Cook them as they are or separate into bowls and colour for a fabulous display sure to put a smile on your face. Serve with a chunk of butter and lashings of maple syrup!

Make sure to use good quality, gel food colouring, for these, I’ve used Sugarflair. (Available from Iced Jems) this way you only need a TINY amount to make a BIG impact. Liquid food colours from supermarkets generally are too watery and won’t give you a great colour.


Mix together the self raising flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar.


Then, in a jug measure out your milk and crack in two eggs. Pour in the melted butter and whisk gently with a fork.


Pour in the melted butter, milk and eggs into your dry mix and whisk on a low speed.


Whisk on a high speed until your batter is smooth.


Split your batter into 6 pots.


Once your batter is divided, colour with the rainbow! (I’ve used Sugarflair concentrated colours in Poppy Red, Tangerine, Melon, Party Green, Ice Blue & Grape Violet.)


Heat up a frying pan with a slice of butter.


Pour in a ladle of batter and cook the pancakes individually for 2 minutes either side.



I’ve done two pancakes for each colour for a big stack! How many you do, is up to you.

Stack and cover in whatever you like! I’ve used butter and maple syrup!

LOVE these!!

Give it a try and let me know how you get on either on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram.

Happy baking!
