Pink Ombre Pancakes
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together. In a large jug whisk eggs, milk, butter and vanilla
  2. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in milk mixture to make a smooth batter
  3. Heat a large, lightly greased non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Working in batches, spoon ¼ cup of batter into the pan. Cook pancake for 1-2 minutes, until bubbles break on the surface and the underside is golden brown. Flip over and cook for 1 minute. Repeat to make 3 pancakes
  4. Tint batter a pale shade of pink. Cook another 3 pancakes. Tint batter a darker shade of pink, cook another 3 pancakes. Repeat until you have 5 colours of pancakes in total
  5. To serve, stack the pancakes from darkest on the bottom to lightest on the top. Serve the pancakes with berries, syrup and ice-cream
Tips & Hints:
  • As more food colour is added, the batter will spread more and create flatter, wider pancakes. We suggest adding an extra couple of tablespoons of flour and 1 tsp of baking powder to the batter after the first batch of food colour is added
  • Keep pancakes warm in a low oven covered in foil while making the remaining pancakes
