Mum who's a big kid at heart breakfast in bed: Little ones will simply love making these cutesy, chocolate teddy bear pancakes with berries and syrup for mum to enjoy on Mother's Day.
- In a bowl mix the plain flour, cocoa and baking powder. Make a well in the centre, add the egg and beat in, gradually adding the milk, until the mixture is smooth.
- Preheat the oven to gas 1/2, 130°C, fan 110°C. Heat a knob of butter or a little oil in a frying pan and blob in a heaped dessert spoonful of the batter, adding small blobs for ears on either side. Cook over a medium heat for a couple of minutes, until bubbles start to appear around the edges of the pancake, then flip over and cook for another couple of minutes, until puffed. Repeat with the rest of the batter, adding extra butter or oil between batches as needed.
- For the nose of each teddy bear, make a separate small blob of pancake, flipping as above. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a low oven while you cook the remainder.
- Top each pancake with one of the small pancakes for a nose, two blueberries for the eyes and a drizzle of syrup.
Serve with: Banana smoothie
Put 1 ripe banana, 150g (5oz) low-fat yogurt, a handful of ice and a splash of milk into a blender. Whizz until smooth, pour into a glass and pop in a straw.
