Pancake Fun With Num Noms #NumNomsFoodie

Pancake day has arrived. I have to admit this totally beats Valentine's day! The kids tend to opt for something sweet, normally Nutella pancake rolls where as I like to go something more traditional with a bit of lemon and sugar. This year we were challenged to get creative with our pancakes and incorporate some of the yummy series 3 Num Noms characters. Challenge accepted.

We were kindly sent one of the brand new Num Noms Lunch Box packs for some inspiration and after much deliberation we came up with the ultimate pancake topping, a strawberry and blueberry sauce with lots of marshmallows sprinkled over. This was thanks to Softy Mallow, Sugar Stripes (who smells like strawberries) and Blueberry Stamp-It.

I used a quick and simple recipe for making the actual pancakes although I must admit I didn't manage to actually 'flip' them, I was a tad worried about them getting stuck to the ceiling. The recipe for the pancakes is as follows :

135g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
130ml milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp melted butter 


Simple mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another, combine gently and cook as you would any other pancake. What you end up with is some light and fluffy American style pancakes, the above recipe will serve around 4 to 6 people depending on how big you make each pancake.

The girls came up with a name for their creation.... Mallow Berrylicious pancakes.

What's your favourite pancake topping, are you more traditional or do you like to get creative?
