Lily Pad Pancakes

I have raved before about how much we love our Toddler Cafe Cookbook but running across an unpublished post reminded me just how many ideas we have pulled from that great book. We tested half the book in January and have incorporated several of the ideas into regular rotation. This is a recipe we adapted and have used with several other vegetables to make fun, colorful pancakes.

  • 8 ounces frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • Vegetable oil, as needed
  • Yogurt, for serving
Blend peas with water and eggs. Pour into a bowl and mix in flour, salt and baking powder. Let mixture sit for ten minutes. Place oil (if needed) in a saute pan and warm over medium heat. Pour 1 tbsp batter into pan and cook as you would pancakes, until you see bubbles around the edges. Flip and cook on the other side until lightly browned. Serve with yogurt.

Audrey's and Maurene's Tasks:

  1. Crack eggs
  2. Place items in food processor and blend
  3. Mix batter
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Assist girls
  2. Cook pancakes
These were amazing. The girls had a great time making them and very much enjoyed eating them. I highly recommend the yogurt to serve them with as it is a great accompaniment. We typically keep a jar of homemade yogurt around so I can really feel good about serving this meal to the girls.

Blending peas.
Mixing batter.
Fruits of labor!

Look how young they appear and this was just the beginning of the year! They grow up so fast!
