Spider Web Pancakes

  • Gently whisk the flour and baking powder together in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and break the egg into it. Pour in half the milk then whisk the ingredients together. Add the remaining milk and continue to whisk until combined.
  • Transfer ¼ of the mixture to a seperate bowl. Add cocoa and whisk until combined. Pour this mixture into a squeeze bottle.
  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat, and coat the pan with the coconut oil Use a pastry brush or wipe with a folded paper towel to ensure there is a thin, even coating of oil on the pan with no droplets of oil visible.
  • Draw a web pattern with the cocoa mixture into the pan. When set, spoon the plain mixture over the top to completely cover. Cook until bubbles appear on surface. Flip and cook the other side until golden (usually around 1 - 1.5 mins). Repeat, brushing pan with oil between pancakes.

Green Monster Pancakes

  • Place 2 tablespoons of batter into the pan to form one pancake. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface then flip and cook the other side until golden (usually around 1 – 1 1/2 minutes). If you have a big pan you can do several at once. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Push eyes randomly in the pancakes and serve with chia jam

Gently remove the cookie cutter using a set of tongs. Flip to cook the other side (usually around 1 - 1½ minutes). Repeat with the remaining batter.

Notes

  1. Pan Temperature - Too hot and your pancakes will be scorched, too cold and they can become flat and tough. Aim for medium heat and be prepared to adjust up or down over the course of frying. 
  2. You can replace coconut oil with another oil or you can use butter. 
CHOKING HAZARD: Please note that the edible eyes are a choking hazard. If making for children under 4, a safer option would be to use a white chocolate button topped with a smaller dark chocolate drop.
