Children’s Egg Recipes

British Egg RecipesThis 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.

Scotch Pancakes

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.

Sweetcorn Fritters

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.

Sunshine Toast

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.
