Mini Pancake Skewers
These Mini Pancake Skewers are kid-friendly, healthy, and easy to make! Mini Pancake Skewers are a mash up of finger-friendly foods, so they are super easy for kids to feed themselves. The mini pancakes themselves are firm enough to pick up and soft enough to bite into easily. The fruits on the skewers are all bite-sized and soft too.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 cocktail skewers
For the pancakes
- 1 medium egg
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour / whole wheat flour / spelt flour (I used a mix of whole wheat flour and spelt flour in the photos)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter - melted
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
For the skewers
- 1 cup small strawberries - washed
- 1/2 cup blueberries - washed
- 1/2 cup raspberries - washed
- 1 medium banana - cut into thin slices
In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Add in all the other ingredients and mix until well combined.
Heat a griddle on medium heat and coat it with a bit of oil.
The easiest way to get mini-pancakes is to fill the batter into a squeeze bottle with a narrow spout (for example, one of the plastic red ketchup bottles at diners). Squeeze out the pancake batter so they are about the 1-inch (2.5-cm) in diameter. If you don't have a squeeze bottle, you can drop the pancake batter on with a small spoon. Form about 8-10 pancakes at a time, so you give yourself enough time to be able to flip the pancakes over before they burn.
Cook the pancakes until bubbles start forming on the surface and the bottom is a light golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute, until the flip side is also a light golden brown.
Skewer the mini pancakes and the fruit onto a cocktail stick, alternating between the mini pancakes and fruit.
Serve with maple syrup.
