Family Friendly Recipes – Pea and Sweetcorn Pancakes

Pea and sweetcorn pancakes has been a staple of mine since I was little! It was my mum’s way of getting us to eat a bit of veg, and it was relatively quick and cheap too. I could eat them til they came out my ears.

I’m awful and don’t really ever follow a recipe or weigh things out when I’m making pancakes, I just throw things into a bowl and see what it looks like!! (As I’ve explained below, but I’ve just been super nice to you, and made another batch so that I could measure everything out, check out the ingredients list at the bottom of this post)

These pancakes are best when the batter is a bit on the thick side, as opposed to your usual pancakes on Shrove Tuesday.

I use 2 eggs, add in a good slug of wholemeal flour, and some milk and stir it until it is well mixed and thick.

I then add in a couple of handfuls of peas and a couple of sweetcorn too. Again, I’m lazy and I don’t cook or defrost them before adding them to the batter mix, but you can do if you want. My view is they cook when you’re cooking the pancakes. Plus it saves washing another pan! If the batter mix looks too thick now the peas and sweetcorn are in there, add a bit more milk to the mixture.

I add a bit of butter to a frying pan, and then usually cook 3-4 small pancakes at a time.

They can be eaten on their own (as I do), or with anything else you want really. This is a meal we all eat together, and Chris likes to have bacon with them…next time I might try cooking them with bits of cooked and chopped up crispy bacon in the pancakes to see what that’s like.

I would happily eat the whole plate of pancakes myself (there is probably about 10-15 here), but Chris insists on me sharing them with him and Isla

Are there any meals you eat now with your children that you used to have when you were a child?

    Oh I like this idea. I always have eggs to use up and a supply of peas and sweetcorn.

    These are such a great idea. I haven’t made these before but I think I will soon. My girls would love them.
