A tasty finger food, perfect for weaning! This Zesty Orange Pancake recipe is an irresistible seasonal breakfast treat for babies.


Whisk the eggs and milk together in a large bowl or jug, either with a hand whisk or an electric one

Use a fine zester to zest both of the oranges, then add all of this into the batter. (Be careful to only take the top layer of orange, as the white pith is very bitter). Then add the flour slowly, whisking thoroughly until completely smooth. Leave the batter to stand for about ½ hour. This improves the quality of the batter and makes it easier to cook with.

Use a sharp knife to cut the peel off the oranges. Cut as close as you can to the skin, so that you remove the bitter white pith, but don’t lose the orange flesh. Then divide into segments and cut the segments in half to create lots of little orange pieces.

Use a paper towel to wipe a small amount of oil over a small frying pan to lightly grease it, then heat it over a medium to high heat. Add a small ladle of batter and tip the pan to just coat the base. (Top-tip - the batter should be a very thin layer and if you have the temperature of the pan right it should cook on one side in about 30 seconds. The side you’re looking at will look like it has lots of tiny pot holes in it when it’s cooked. Use a fish slice to carefully slide underneath and flip it over. Then cook the other side for another 30 seconds to a minute. It should be beautifully golden on both sides).

Serve with orange segments, a dollop of Greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup as well if you like. You can keep pancakes warm on a tray in a very low oven, until ready to serve. Alternatively you can make in advance, and store in a tub in the fridge for 3 days, or freeze. Place a little parchment paper between each pancake if freezing.You can very simply double this recipe for more if they're a hit in your household!
