My son loves pancakes but especially loves these Animal Pancakes. To be honest, I love making them too…it’s fun!

Ingredients (makes 10 Small pancakes)

  • 2 Egga
  • 1 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla essence
  • 2 cups SR flour
  • 1/3 cup Caster sugar
  • Cooking oil spray
  • Hazelnut spread
  • Peanut butter
  • Blueberries
  • Banana
  • Strawberries
  • Thin slices of watermelon
  • Greek yoghurt


  1. Whisk eggs, milk and vanilla together in a jug, set aside.
  2. Sift flour into a large bowl, and then stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre, and add in the milk mixture. Whisk until just combined.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Grease pan with spray cooking oil and carefully ladle in some pancake mixture to make small pancakes roughly the size of your palm.
  4. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface, then turn and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining mixture, greasing pan with spray cooking oil between batches.
  6. Use fresh fruit, Hazelnut spread, thick Greek yoghurt or peanut butter to decorate into your favorite animal faces

Notes... These pancakes are best eaten straight away given they include fresh fruit.

  • What a great idea to get your kids to eat more fruit! So creative and fun!


  • It’s great to find some flavoursome gluten free recipes. Almond Meal should be suggested in more recipes.


  • These look very cute. Children would really love to eat these. Great recipe.


  • These would be a great party food idea. I’m not sure how you would attach the strawberries on the one that has no topping.. The ones with topping you could put the strawberries just down far enough that the basic designs stay intact


  • such an awesome creative idea!
