My easy Spelt flour rainbow pancakes are a colourful treat to make at home for pancake day or any fun day. A colourful stack of pancakes, served with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. My pancake recipe is made with my favourite spelt flour, but feel free to add the flour of choice.
Takes = 20 mins
Makes = 12 small pancakes 2 serves of 6

Ingredients

  • White Spelt Flour (or your choice) – 200g (1 1/2 cup)
  • Large Eggs – 2
  • Oat Milk (or your choice) – 170ml (under 1 cup)
  • Baking Powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Colours – 6 (red, orange, green, yellow, blue, purple)

Method

  1. HEAT preheat your fry pan or crepe pan on medium heat, and grease with a little butter or oil.
  2. WHISK flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
  3. ADD in the eggs and milk
  4. MIX until smooth and no lumps
  5. DIVIDE the batter into six bowls, about 80-90g batter in each bowl. I pour my mixture into a jug then use a scale to measure out evenly into each bowl.
  6. ADD in a few drops of colour with the tip of a teaspoon into each bowl and stir. Check my video for further details
  7. POUR about 1/3 cup into your pan and cook for a few minutes on each side then flip when bubbles start appearing. Your mixture should make two pancakes per colour.
  8. ONCE all the pancakes are cooked to make the colour pop on your stack trim around with a cutter or bowl if desired.
  9. STACK starting with purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red then serve with ice cream, or I love Greek yoghurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh fruit.

Baking Tips

  • EGGS if you only have one egg, this recipe should still work just add more milk.
  • BAKING SODA – you don't have any baking soda, please use all baking powder instead
  • FLOUR – you could use SR flour but leave out the baking powder and baking soda
  • EXTRA SUGAR – many people add sugar to their recipes, I don't as I prefer them without, feel free to add sugar if you want them sweeter
  • BUTTER in the batter. Many other recipes add butter to the batter to help with cooking. You could add this as well 1-2 tbsp of melted butter. I find I never need it.
