Easy pancake recipe


PaediaSure Shake powder transforms a simple pancake into the cat’s whiskers

They’ll go flipping crazy for these yummy pancakes, enriched with PaediaSure Shake powder.

Packing your child's pancakes with extra nutrients is like a warm hug in their tummy. You’d batter believe it!  Feline creative? Turn this easy pancake recipe into a cute kitty! We show you how. Mee-wow!

Makes: 12


  • 4 scoops* of PaediaSure Shake powder (any flavour)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 200ml semi-skimmed milk

  • 130g plain flour

  • A knob of butter

For the toppings:

  • Fresh, tinned or dried fruit to decorate. We like strawberries, blueberries, dates and bananas.**


  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the bicarbonate of soda, PaediaSure Shake powder and milk, and whisk until well combined.

  2. Sift the flour into the bowl and whisk again until smooth and thick enough to form a batter.

  3. Heat a frying pan over a moderate heat and add a knob of butter.

  4. Slowly pour a ladle of batter onto the frying pan. Don’t move the frying pan around, these are meant to be thick pancakes!

  5. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble and then FLIP!

  6. Cook until both sides are golden brown.

  7. Repeat this to make roughly 12 pancakes, or until all the batter is used up.

  8. Whilst your pancakes cook, assemble fruit to decorate. We liked using blueberries as pawprints (sliced grapes would work well, too). We used banana slices and a piece of date (or plum) for eyes, strawberry slices for ears and a tongue.

Pancake toppings are a great way to introduce your fussy eater to new flavours. Find out more.

Choking hazard: Please be careful of blueberries and grapes

Tempt your little cubs with this easy lion pancake

Your little cubs will pounce on this pancake the moment it roars into the kitchen. Encourage them to help you create the lion’s friendly features and magnificent mane. All you need is some fresh or tinned fruit and a little imagination.


Step one: Make a batch of pancakes using steps 1-7 from our easy recipe above.

Step two: Let your imagination run wild!

Fresh and tinned fruit work equally well so grab whatever you have to hand. You could place a selection on the table so your child can decorate their own pancake. They’re even more likely to eat their own masterpiece. We used extra bits of pancake to make the nose, mouth and ears, banana slices and blueberries for the eyes, a blackberry for the nose, and lots of satsuma segments for the glorious mane.
