Red Velvet Pancakes

I have a personal favourite to share with you all, and you can thank my Little Miss Two, who this week has declared Pancakes for breakfast each morning, and given we have gone through a few months now of a refusal to eat anything for breakfast, Im happy to oblige to this sudden craving. Lucky for me we have been away and so the Pancakes til today were provided courtesy of the Qantas Business Club Lounge Pop-cakes Machine and the Hotel room breakfast (which I deemed the best pancake breakfast Ive eaten EVER and that is a HUGE call – I sneaked in a pic of it below so you can drool and by totally jealous) at The Prince St Kilda in Melbourne Australia.

So anyway back to breakfast, Missy declared pancakes and then immediately whipped out her apron and pushed in her chair. So with my Handy Helper all ready with whisk in hand I had no choice but to roll out the bowl and pan myself and start dishing out the ingredients to her!

1 1/3 cups Plain Flour (All purpose)
1 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Bi-carb Soda
1 Tbsp Castor Sugar
1 Lrg Egg
200g Yoghurt (any – I used strawberry kids yoghurt)
200ml Milk
40g Butter – melted
Sprinkle cinnamon, or Vanilla, or Emulsion (I used Red Velvet Emulsion by Lor Ann)

Using a large mixing bowl and hand whisk (even a kids size whisk or fork), measure and place in all the ingredients. And whisk til you have a runny mixture.

Place frypan on low heat for 3-4 minutes and then using paper towel or greaseproof paper grease with butter.
WHOOPS! Thats not mean't to happen!

Using a ¼ measuring cup or spoon place mixture in 2 or 3 lots in your frypan. When pancake/s become covered in air bubbles it is ready to flip over. Do this and wait approx another 3 minutes, check and if golden remove from pan. My suggestion is to keep your cooked pancakes on a dinner plate covered with a tea towel to keep them warm and soft.  Grease pan with butter between each batch of pancakes.

Cover with chopped strawberries and drizzle with maple syrup for best results!
Serves – 4 people (2-3 pancakes each)
