This week is British Egg Week so we thought we would do a round up of some toddler and child friendly egg recipes.
Some are favourites from our family recipe books, others have been shared on our Facebook Page.
Pancakes are a Sunday morning staple but during the week we make Scotch pancakes as a quick pudding or simple snack. They can be eaten straight from the pan and are nice cold too – they travel well so we take them out with us for day trips.
200g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
300 ml milk
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Gently stir in the egg and then the milk, a little at a time until you get a pouring batter.
Don’t beat the mixture, you don’t want to add too much air, so stir gently.
Drop spoonfuls into a hot, lightly greased pan, turning once the bubbles have stopped appearing.
Serve buttered, or with chocolate spread, jam, fresh fruit, etc.
They are also a great recipe to make with children – not too many ingredients and forgiving enough that the results are always good even with toddler help.
My recipe for this simple supper dish can be found on Penny’s Recipes, a treasure trove of simple, fresh and economical recipes for you to cook.
The link to this was shared on our Facebook Page (thank you Emma) and looks so good, I am going to make it for breakfast tomorrow – http://thinlyspread.co.uk/2012/04/07/easy-easter-breakfast-sunshine-toast/
I’m not usually a fan of food fussed around with for children but this is pure fun and will certainly brighten up an Autumn morning.
