Funfetti rainbow pancakes

Makes 24

Funfetti rainbow pancakes.

Ingredients

For the pancakes:

  • 3 medium eggs
  • 250ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 5ml each red, green, blue and yellow food colouring
  • 20g sprinkles
  • Sunflower oil

For the sauce: 

  • 125g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 125ml evaporated milk
  • Extra sprinkles

Method

  1. To make the batter, mix the eggs, milk and vanilla essence together in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and sugar. Make a well in the middle of the flour, add the milk mixture gradually, mixing into the flour until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Divide the mixture into four and colour each one with a different food colour. Add 5g of sprinkles to each and mix.
  4. Grease a non-stick frying pan with some oil and put a teaspoon full of each coloured batter in and swirl to make a round pancake. Cook for a minute or so until set, then flip and cook the other side. Do this with the remaining pancakes until all the batter has been used up – keep the cooked ones warm while you make the sauce.
  5. Sieve the icing sugar and add the evaporated milk and vanilla essence and whisk until you have a smooth sauce.
  6. Serve the pancakes stacked and drizzled with the sauce and sprinkled with extra sprinkles.
