How to make a fun kids’ snack with a story
At Yeo Valley, pancake making isn’t restricted to Shrove Tuesday.
On a rainy day, or as an after-school snack, get out your frying pan and flex your arms for flipping!
The pancake batter is quick and easy to make, Yeo Valley organic natural yogurt from British family farms making it extra creamy.
The children will love helping out, what’s best of all is that the pancakes don’t have to be a circular shape. Use your imagination and go with whatever you see – a face? A giant whale? An aeroplane-shaped batter masterpiece… As the mixture cooks, invent your own story for the character emerging from the pan, perhaps it has a name or has come from another country or planet. Remember to write it down or draw a picture so it can be kept for much longer than the pancake will last!
Decorate with a dollop of Little Yeo’s fromage frais, fresh fruit and a drizzle of lemon for a snack with a story.
- 100g (4oz) self-raising flour
- 30g (2 tbsp) caster sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 75ml Yeo Valley Natural Yogurt
- 15-30ml (1-2 tbsp) Yeo Valley Whole Milk
- A little vegetable oil to fry
- Sieve the flour into a bowl and mix in the caster sugar. Add the beaten egg and natural yogurt and enough milk to make a thick batter, the consistency of double cream.
- Heat a little oil in a heavy-based, non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. Drop tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn the pancakes over and cook on the other side.
- Keep the pancakes warm in a clean tea towel whilst cooking the remaining mixture. Serve with Little Yeos Yogurt or Fromage Frais and fruit.
