Pancake Art at Home + Homemade Pancake Recipe

Water colour, colour pencils, markers, crayons... we didn't use these for our drawing last weekend. We drew with pancake batter. Yes, pancake batter!

Inspired by this daddy, I thought Pei Pei and Hao Hao may enjoy drawing with pancake batter.



See our not-so-professional drawings, can you make a guess what we drew?



It was quite messy, but we had lots of fun!

Ingredients for pancake:
2 eggs
30 grams butter (melted)
250 ml milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup plain flour
1.5 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Some tips on making fluffy pancakes:
  • Mix the dry ingredients (sugar, flour, baking powder and salt), and separately, mix the wet ingredients (eggs, butter, milk). Then add the wet mixture to the dry mixture.
  • Do not overmix the batter - mix until the ingredients just combine, it is ok to be a bit lumpy.
  • Start cooking as soon as the batter is prepared.
  • Use medium fire to make the pancakes brown.
