Father's Day Breakfast

Father's Day Breakfast

Father’s Day all starts with breakfast.  Bacon & Eggs is always a favourite – but why not surprise this year with something different.

This easy pancake batter can be scooped into a funnel (or a jug if you don’t have a funnel) to make pancake letters!  You can spell out lots of words – but we expect “DAD” might be a favourite this weekend.

Try pairing with chopped up fruit and berries, honey and yoghurt.


1 cup self raising flour

Pinch of bicarbonate of soda

¾ cup (190mL) milk

1 egg, lightly beaten

spray oil, for greasing pan


1. Sift flour and bicarbonate of soda into a medium bowl; stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre; whisk in combined milk and egg.

2. Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat; lightly spray with oil. Pour around ¼ cup of pancake mixture into jug or funnel, move over frying pan in shape of letter.  Cook pancakes until bubbles appear on surface, about 2-3 minutes; turn and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining mixture, spraying with oil between batches.

3. Serve with fruit, honey and yoghurt.
