  • 110 g Plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 200 mls Semi-skimmed milk mixed with 75 mls water
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil melted
  • Extra coconut oil for frying
  • Suggested toppings:
  • Blueberries a few halved
  • Strawberries sliced
  • Banana sliced
  • Kiwi fruit sliced
  • 1 jar Nutella (Chocolate Hazelnut Spread)
  • Golden or Maple Syrup
  • Dessert sprinkles


  • Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre and add the eggs.
  • Whisk, slowly incorporating the flour from the sides.
  • Gradually whisk in the milk and water mixture to form the batter.
  • Just before you want to cook the pancakes whisk in the coconut oil.
  • In a large non-stick frying pan heat a teaspoon of coconut oil on a high heat and then turn down to a medium heat.
  • Pour the oil into small vessel.
  • Pour enough batter into the frying pan (whilst tipping in a circle) to cover the base.
  • Cook through until small bubbles appear on the surface and base turns golden (you can lift the side to check).
  • Flip pancake and cook for about another 30 seconds until golden.
  • Repeat with the rest of the pancake mixture, stacking the pancakes on top of each other as you go.
  • Place the pancakes on the table and allow your diners to assemble their monster pancakes.
  • Squeezy chocolate hazelnut spread forms a great “denture grip” for the monster teeth which can be squeezed half way around the edge of the pancake.
  • Place fruit teeth in the spread and fill the pancake with more fruit if wished.
  • Fold over the pancake (allowing the monster teeth to show) and make monster faces using the suggested toppings.
  • Serve with ice cream if wished.
