February 5 "The Toddler Cafe" Lily Pad Pancakes

I cannot get enough of this wonderful book. The Toddler Cafe is full of great recipes that are not only healthy but also tasty. Many of them have already become regulars and we plan to try more soon. This is going to be our new must have recommendation to all parents of young children. Audrey and I made Lily Pad Pancakes which are not much more than pureed peas made into cakes. I served them to the girls with applesauce and they both ate them. You should make up a batch or two this weekend and throw them in the freezer for an easy snack before dinner or a fabulous green breakfast.

  • 8 oz (about 1 1/2 cups) frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp all-purposed flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • vegetable oil, as needed
  • butter or plain yogurt for serving
Add peas to blender with the water and egg; puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl and stir in the flour, salt, and baking powder and gradually mix with a fork or whisk. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes while you clean up. Place about 2 tbsp of oil in a saute pan, warm over medium heat until shimmering, and drop 1 tbsp batter into the pan. Gently cook for about 3 minutes, until you see bubbles forming around the edges. Flip and cook on the second side until very lightly browned. Continue until all the batter is gone. Serve with butter or plain yogurt.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Crack the egg
  2. Measure and add ingredients to food processor
  3. Mix
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey
  3. Cook pancakes
We enjoyed making these and the girls really liked them. I tried one as well and served with applesauce they are pretty good.
