Method
1.
Place the caster sugar and flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre
2.
Crack the eggs into the well and start to mix the ingredients together using a whisk or wooden spoon. Add the milk slowly and beat until smooth

Room for a little one
Ask the little ones to beat the mix until really smooth. If their hands get tired, take a break and resume after a couple of minutes
3.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan so that it coats the whole surface. Pour a small ladle of pancake batter into the pan. Tilt the pan to coat the whole surface and cook for 2-3 minutes
4.
Flip the pancake over and cook for a further minute
Room for a little one
If you’re feeling brave, encourage the kids to flip their own pancakes, just be prepared to put the ‘3 second rule’ to the test
5.
Slide the pancake onto a plate and repeat the process until all the batter is used up
6.
Place the pancakes onto a board and spread cream cheese over the centre of each. Arrange a few slices of banana on top
Lighten it up
Cream cheese is not the healthiest, but is fine for a special occasion. Try replacing with more fresh fruit to keep it lighter
7.
Fold each pancake in half and then in half again to form a triangle shape. Set aside while you make the sauce
8.
For the toffee sauce, add the sugar to a heavy-based saucepan and heat until the sugar melts and turns a golden brown colour
9.
Then, whisk in the cream, butter and vanilla essence
10.
Slowly bring to the boil, whilst stirring with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat
11.
Pour a little of the sauce over the pancakes and serve
