Berry Melon Pancakes

Berry Melon Pancakes
These delicious berry melon pancakes are packed with fruity flavour and are really easy to make. These are amazing served with fruit and cream. They freeze well too!

Make this one with your kids, little ones will think the cool purple coloured batter is pretty neat.

Pancakes are the best, they are made of such basic ingredients and are super quick to prepare. 

Ingredients

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup chopped watermelon
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • Butter or olive oil for frying

Method

Use a blender or food processer to blend up the banana, watermelon and berries. If you don't have a blender or food processor, you can use a vegetable masher to mash it all up.

Pour blended fruit into a mixing bowl.

Add egg and whisk lightly.

Add flour and mix to combine.

The batter will be a lovely deep purple, thanks to the blueberries.

Depending on the size of the banana, consistency of the batter may vary. If you pick it up with a spoon it should run off in a fairly thick drizzle. If you feel that the batter is too thick, add a splash of water or milk and mix it in. If you think it's too runny, Add more flour a little bit at a time until it seems right.

Heat a little butter or olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

Add large spoonfuls of the batter to the pan, evenly spaced.

Cook until golden brown underneath and the top is just starting to set.

Flip pancakes with a spatula and allow other side to brown.

Once both sides are golden brown, remove from pan.

Allow to cool for a few minutes and serve.



DID YOU KNOW...

  • Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in toddler cooking, as they are a healthy way of sweetening any recipe without adding refined sugar. Mashed banana can also be used in place of butter or oil to keep cakes and muffins moist.
