Easy Pancakes


This recipe makes about 7-8 pancakes of 18cm in diameter.


1. 1 cup (125g) or 2 dl flour
2. 3 eggs
3. 3 dl (300 ml) low-fat fresh milk 0.1% fat
4. 3 TBS vanilla sugar/sugar
7. 1 tsp cooking oil (for frying)


1. Mix all the ingredients in a blender.

2. Heat pan with cooking oil until hot (Its temperature is just right when a few drops of cold water dropped on the pan will jump and sizzle. If the pan is not sufficiently hot, the water will lie there and boil. If it is too hot, the water will evaporate instantly).

3. When the pan is hot, add some oil just enough to spread a thin layer on the pan by rubbing it with a piece of kitchen roll when making the first piece of pancake.

4. Turn to medium-low heat (no. 7 on my stove) and pour in a ladle of mixture just enough to spread it to cover the whole circumference of the pan.

5. Cook until the surface of the pancake is filled with bubbles and the underside has turned slightly brown (about 45 secs to 1 min). Raise the edge of the pancake with the wooden spatula to test if it is firm and brown.

6. Flip over and cook the other side for 30 secs more. DO NOT flip again or the pancake will be tough. (Although you may be tempted to do so, don’t use the spatula to press down the pancake or it will be heavy).


Cool them completely before freezing. Freeze them in freezer bags between sheets of waxed paper for 3 months. To re-heat, place frozen pancakes single layer on a baking sheet in a 190°C oven for 7-10 mins. or microwave each pancake for 20 secs.

Additional Information:

This week the children are hooked on yogurt bowls - how our breakfast rotation goes!!!

This berry-fruit yogurt bowl takes less than 10 minutes to make 3 bowls (including chopping up 1-2 strawberries) or 5 minutes to make 1 bowl, and is a healthy, tasty and nutrients power-packed breakfast filled with antioxidants, protein, good fat and good bacteria from the natural yogurt acidophilus. This is also one of the cheapest natural yogurt from the Danish supermarket and it is organic. 

Adding banana as the natural sweetener and adding the berries, and viola, it turns to a yummy fruit yogurt, minus all the preservative from the store-bought ready made fruit yogurt. You can substitute the berries with any of your preferred fruit.

To make 3 servings, we use:

1. 2 bananas
2. Handful of 100g raspberries or a mixture of different berries
3. 200 ml natural yogurt
4. 1 heap tsp nut butter (optional)
5. 3 dried dates pitted (optional, if you want to make it super sweet :-))

We try not to buy store-bought fruit yogurt as much as possible. They look very attractive to kids, but they are full of processed ingredients, chemicals and preservatives. 

Do not be fooled by the ingredient called "Naturlig aroma."

Naturlig aroma, for example, is a processed ingredient: A natural flavoring substance is a flavoring substance that has been produced by suitable physical, enzymatic or microbiological processes from vegetable, animal or microbiological material, either in its original form or processed. A much better flavoring is to add real fruits into the yogurt ourselves.

If we absolutely needs to buy store-bought fruit yogurt due to lack of time, then the product below is one of the best ones:

Here is how to make the homemade fruit yogurt:

Here are the ingredients.

This is the yogurt we use. It is organic, natural with only 0.4% fat, and one of the cheapest in the Danish supermarkets.

Blend everything together in a blender.

Add the desired toppings and ready to serve :-)
