Fun Pancake “Cakes”

Pancake “Cake”

We were having a bit of a celebration so I decided to make a fun food little “cake” and served it to four boys. It lasted about the same time as it took me to get my camera ready ….

I made some buckwheat pancake batter then cooked them individually in egg rings to make small circles. These were then stacked and layered with fruit and yoghurt. A big hit and a great alternative to a traditional cake – especially as there is no sugar but loads of colour, flavour and of course you can make to personal specifications!
