I came up with this rainbow pancake idea on Valentine‘s Day to cheer up my little girl who had been poorly - it worked a treat!
Whisk flour, eggs and pinch salt, slowly adding milk and water until consistency of single cream
Melt butter in a pan; add 2 tablespoons to mixture, and put aside remaining butter for oiling pan.
Split mixture into separate bowls, and add food colouring as per your preference
Once pan is hot, turn down to a medium heat, oil pan, and add batter mix. Start with a base colour, and then you‘ll need to act quickly swirl other colours into the mix before the batter sets.
Cook for a minute or two each side (depending on pancake thickness) as you prefer. Turn out, and decorate with chocolate, ‘hundreds and thousands‘ (see pic) or as you prefer.
This basic mix is based on a Delia Smith recipe, which I find works great with thin or thick pancakes. My take on this is to add the food colouring, as you would with a marble cake. It makes a different twist on the standard pancake, and kids love it!.
The mixture is quite runny - watch out for splashes, especially if you are using an electric hand whisk!
Be brave and toss that pancake midway!
