    These fun pancakes are a great treat for the little ones. Pancakes are arranged in the shape of animals' faces. A pig's face is easy to make, as shown in the picture, but feel free to be as creative as you want!

    Serves: 3 

    • 180ml milk
    • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
    • 125g plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Mix milk and vinegar in a bowl and let stand for 5 minutes so that the milk goes sour.
    2. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl.
    3. Mix together egg, butter and soured milk, then beat in flour mixture until lump-free.
    4. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and spray with cooking oil spray (or butter). Pour portions of the batter into the pan and make 4 large pancakes (about 15cm diameter) and 4 small pancakes (about 8cm in diameter). When bubbles form on the top of the pancakes, flip them over and cook on the other side.
    5. Set 3 of the large pancakes on 3 large plates. Cut the small pancakes in half and place them as pig's ears next to the large pancakes. Cut around a small glass to make three snouts from the remaining large pancakes. Place 2 blueberries on each as eyes and two more for nostrils. Place half a slice of orange as the tongue.
