Every child or for that matter even an adult deserves a treat once in a while, wouldn’t you agree?. These pancakes are one such treat my daughter Ziya thoroughly enjoys. In this blogpost I will share with you a pancake recipe which you can make from scratch with a healthier variation to it as well.
This is also a make ahead friendly option as I prepare the pancake mix in the below quantity and it lasts me for an extra day. With this dimension and thickness I can easily make around 20 pancakes.
To combine the ingredients well I use a mixer instead of a hand beater, as its faster and no lumps remain. However you can even use a bowl and a hand beater if you are comfortable using that. I also have this pan shown below that I had purchased from Amazon in the year 2018 which can make 3 pancakes at one go, thus saving even more time and effort. And I must say it is as good as new till today.
I love the combination of a cream cheese frosting with it. We had tried this while we were on a family holiday in Maldives back in 2018 that’s when I decided to learn how to make it for her as a side for the pancake.

- At this stage check the consistency as we do not want the batter to be really thick so adjust the water accordingly.
- Now you can store the batter in the fridge for later use. When you want to make it, then take the batter out from the fridge since it would have thickened a bit you can add a little milk and mix it well to get the right consistency.
- If you plan making it right away then go ahead with the following mentioned step
- Heat the pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil or cooking spray. Pour a little mixture and cook on one side until bubbles start to show, then flip it over and cook until golden brown. Repeat this step depending on how many pancakes you would like to make.Oil/ cooking spray
