Dr Oetker Unicorn Pancakes

Seen as it was pancake day, Dr Oetker kindly sent us some ingredients to make there Unicorn pancakes. Emily was so excited to open up the package and see lots of multicoloured chocolate chips. Now I am going to be completely honest, Emily doesn't like pancakes, I have tried lots of different recipes with her, and I tried again this year, but she just doesn't seem to like the texture, and therefore she just doesn't end up eating them. She did try them though, and that is always a step in the right direction.

115g plain flour
pinch of salt
5g Dr Oetker baking powder
25g Caster Sugar
1 Large egg (beaten)
100ml Whole Milk
10ml Vegetable Oil
100g Dr Oetker Unicorn Chips

Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg and milk and gradually whisk it into the dry ingredients until the mixture is well blended. Stir in the unicorn chips.
Heat a heavy-based frying pan or griddle pan, add some oil and allow to heat, then drop 2 tablespoons of batter into the pan to make each pancake.
Cook over a medium heat until bubbles appear, this takes about 2 minutes. Flip the pancake over and cook the other side until it is golden.

Emily had lots of fun making these pancakes, she really enjoyed helping me make the batter and loved to watch the bubbles form as the pancakes were cooking. Despite trying them she wasn't all that keen - I on the other hand was, they were really tasty, and the chocolate chips added a really yummy chocolate taste without it being too overpowering. Over on the Dr Oetker website they have a recipe for a marshmallow sauce to compliment the pancakes. We choose not to make that, just as Emily doesn't like marshmallows and it seemed like it would be a waste, but I bet it tasted amazing.

I'd love to know what your favourite pancake topping is
