Pancake Mix

We have been making some progress with Ella's eating this past week. (For those who don't know she has major food issues, mix her ASD sensory with physiological issues and you have a 5 year old who has only eaten 4-5 things in over 3years!!!!). Anyway this week she has tried a heap of things (and getting her to try things is a big hurdle in itself), a bite of watermelon, a couple of cashew nuts, fish fingers, strawberry milk and pancakes!

Often we get excited too early as she tries something once but won't have it again, but she is in love with my pancakes and has eaten them 3 days in a row! Whoop whoop a new food!!!! So tonight we weren't surprised she asked for pancakes for dinner. She has sat here and eaten about 9 picklette sized pancakes so far and we couldn't be happier!

I made this pancake mix up in jars for christmas gifts as its easy to make a big batch of dry mix and have ready in a jar for when you need to whip some up. No more pancake shaker bottles with nasties in it here!






















Pancake Mix
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 3 Tbsp rapadura (or sugar of choice)
  • 1 cup milk powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Method:
  1. Mix all ingredients together well in a large bowl and store in jar ready for use.

How to make mixture:
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • Splash of vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 cup of dry pancake mixture
  • Up to 1/2 cup water
Method:
  1. Melt the butter in a microwave proof jug and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Add egg, vanilla and syrup and give a good whisk so egg is really well beaten.
  3. Add 1 cup pancake mixture and mix together.
  4. Then gradually add up to 1/2 cup water whisking until desired consistency is achieved.
  5. Cook as per usual for pancakes.
ENJOY! :-)
