PinkNews does rainbow pancake day
To celebrate pancake day, PinkNews joined up with BakedByMia to make some pretty fabulous, rainbow pancake stacks.
Ingredients for pancakes:
230g or 1.5 cups Plain Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 pinch of Sea Salt
1 tablespoon Caster Sugar
2 Large Eggs (beaten)
30g or 1/8 cup Butter + extra for frying
400ml or 14fl oz Milk
Gel food colouring (red, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple)
Before you begin, melt the butter. This can be done on the hob or in the microwave.
To make the batter:
Pour all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugar) into a bowl.
Add in the eggs, melted butter and milk and whisk until it’s a smooth batter.
Divide the batter into 6 equal portions and add a small amount of colouring to each portion.

Heat a saucepan over a medium flame and add a little butter. When it begins to sizzle you’re ready to start cooking.
Add a small amount of batter to the pan, you can use poaching rings like I did to get perfect circles or you can free-pour. The pancake is ready to be turned when the top of the pancakes begins to bubble!
Don’t worry if the tops look a funny colour, they’ll be perfect once you bite in.
