Also know as drop or American pancakes, these are a tasty alternative to cereals at breakfast.

Drop or American pancakes from Saucepan Kids - relaxing weekend breakfast ideas

 300g plain flour
 300g wholemeal flour
 2 tsp baking powder
 6 free range Eggs
 1 litre of buttermilk
 A pinch of salt
 Coconut oil for cooking

Place all the ingredients in a mixer and whisk until the mixture is a smooth, thick batter.


Warm the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.


With a tablespoon, drop some of the pancake mixture into the pan. You should fit around four in the pan at a time. They will expand a little so allow enough room.


Cook for about two minutes (you'll start to see little bubbles appear on the top) and then turn over.


Cook for a further couple of minutes.


Serve with golden syrup or berry compote or alternatively with banana and peanut butter for a healthier treat.
