    For the pancakes

    200g Self Raising Flour

    1 tsp Baking Powder

    15g Caster Sugar

    250ml Semi Skimmed Milk

    3 Medium Eggs

    1 tsp Vanilla Essence

    5ml each Red, Green, Blue and Yellow Food Colouring

    20g Sprinkles

    Sunflower Oil

    For the sauce

    125g Icing Sugar

    1 tsp Vanilla Essence

    125ml Evaporated Milk

    Extra Sprinkles


    To make the batter, mix the eggs, milk, and vanilla essence together in a bowl.

    In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and sugar.

    Make a well in the middle of the flour, add the milk mixture gradually, mixing into the flour until you have a smooth batter.

    Divide the mixture into 4 and colour each one with a different food colour.

    Add 5g of sprinkles to each and mix.

    Grease a non-stick frying pan with some oil and put a teaspoon full of each coloured batter in and swirl to make a round pancake.

    Cook for a minute or so until set, then flip and cook the other side.

    Do this with the remaining pancakes until all the batter has been used up – keep the cooked ones warm while you make the sauce.

    Sieve the icing sugar and add the evaporated milk and vanilla essence and whisk until you have a smooth sauce.

    Serve the pancakes stacked and drizzled with the sauce and sprinkled with extra sprinkles.
