pancakes with fruit yogurt 7491 Preparation time 30 mins Serves 4 people


  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup reduced fat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 40g butter, melted
  • 1 cup canned diced peaches, pears or apricots, well drained on paper towel and/or sliced ripe banana
  • Icing sugar, for dusting


A great pancake recipe that the kids can make.  Be sure to get mum or dad’s help. 

  • Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl.  Make a well in the centre. Whisk milk and egg in a jug then pour into the centre of flour mixture.  Stir to form a smooth batter.  Fold 2 tsp melted butter through mixture.
  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush the base of the pan with melted butter. Spoon 1 ½ tbs batter into the pan and spread to form a 10cm round pancake.  
  • Sprinkle with chopped fruit or a few slices of banana.  Cook for 3 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook further 3-4 minutes until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. 
  • Repeat, reheating the pan and brushing with butter between batches.
  • Top extra fruit and vanilla yoghurt to serve if you like.


The baking power add extra lightness to the cooked pancakes.
