I’ve added pumpkin puree to the batter for these pancake shapes to give them flavour and veg! You can make any shapes that you like.
The buffet for my son’s third birthday today was a rather veggie-orientated affair. But then, what would anyone expect from me? In addition to the Chocolate Beetroot and Chocolate Squash layered birthday cake, and the Spinach and Almond Cupcakes, I made these Pumpkin Pancakes in the shape of the number three.
The littles ones ate them up quickly and they were so easy to make using a squeeze bottle. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to spooning pancakes into the pan again after discovering the creative joys of the squeezy bottle. Today 3′s… tomorrow Picasso’s Guernica.
