Adding Mini Eggs to the Pancake Batter

One key aspect of creating the ultimate Easter Egg pancake masterpiece is incorporating mini eggs directly into the pancake batter itself. This simple addition will infuse each delicious bite with a burst of flavour and an extra touch of festive fun. Let’s take our Easter breakfast to new heights.

The key to successfully incorporating mini eggs into your pancake batter is to be gentle and deliberate with your mixing. Begin by preparing your pancake batter according to your favourite recipe or by using a ready-made mix. Once your batter is well-combined, it’s time to introduce those colourful mini eggs.

Self Raising Flour

Adding some self-raising flour to your mini egg pancakes will boost their fluffiness to all-new heights! You can use any flour from the supermarket and add it into the batter.


Dairy or non-dairy, milk is a vital ingredient in Easter pancakes. It helps to make your breakfast pancakes soft and smooth. Try sweet coconut milk for a non-dairy alternative.

Baking Powder

Baking powder also helps your fluffy mini egg pancakes puff up even more! You’ll only need a little bit if you’re using self-raising pancakes but if you only have plain flour, you’ll need a bit more.

Mini Eggs

The more important addition to this recipe… the humble mini egg! Beautiful pastel coloured chocolate treats that appear at this time of year. I love breaking crushing the mini eggs with a rolling pin – Great way to get your anger out.

Top Tips

I love chopping up mini eggs for recipes. Chop them up carefully and keep them as big as you like. I like to chop them up into about a quarter size for these mini egg pancakes. You can also bash the bag of mini eggs with a rolling pin to break them up.

Leave a few mini eggs to serve your Easter pancakes with. The whole ones look great on top with a squirting of whipped cream.

Treat yourself to a mini egg as you cook, being the head chef of an Easter breakfast is hard work, so it’s only fair that you should taste the merchandise.

Serving Suggestions – Creative Mini Egg Pancake Toppings

Sprinkle crushed mini eggs on top

One idea is to sprinkle some crushed mini eggs on top of your freshly cooked pancakes. This not only adds a delightful crunch but also showcases the beautiful pastel hues of the mini eggs. The combination of the soft pancake and the slightly textured mini eggs creates a delightful sensory experience for your taste buds.

Drizzle over chocolate sauce

If you’re feeling extra indulgent, why not drizzle a decadent chocolate sauce over your mini egg pancakes? The rich, velvety chocolate perfectly complements the sweetness of the mini eggs and adds a touch of indulgence to your Easter breakfast.

Fresh berries and cream

For a refreshing twist, you can top your pancakes with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. The lightness of the cream and the burst of tartness from the berries create a balanced and refreshing flavour profile that goes wonderfully in this mini egg pancake recipe.

Crushed Nuts

If you’re a fan of contrasting textures, consider adding some toasted almonds or pecans to your pancake toppings. The nuttiness adds a delightful crunch to each bite, while the mini eggs bring a burst of sweetness. This combination of flavours and textures will make your Easter pancake creation truly unforgettable.

Substitutions and variations

Fruity Delight

Add a burst of freshness to your pancakes by incorporating fruits into the batter. Whether it’s blueberries, sliced strawberries, or mashed bananas, the fruity twist will bring a delightful sweetness and a pop of colour to your pancakes.

Decadent Chocolate

If you’re a chocolate lover, why not infuse your pancakes with some cocoa powder or add chocolate chips to the batter? The result will be a rich and indulgent treat that will surely satisfy any chocolate cravings that pop up in your Easter breakfast.

Zesty Citrus

For a vibrant and tangy touch, try adding some zest from lemon, lime, or orange into the pancake batter. The citrusy flavour will awaken your taste buds and provide a refreshing contrast to the sweetness of the pancakes.

Nutty Goodness

Boost the texture and flavour of your pancakes by mixing in some chopped nuts such as almonds, pecans, or walnuts. Not only will this add a delightful crunch, but it will also introduce a hint of nuttiness that pairs perfectly with maple syrup or honey.

Spice it Up

If you’re feeling adventurous, experiment with adding a pinch of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom to the pancake batter. This subtle infusion will lend a warming and aromatic element to your pancakes, making them even more irresistible.

Storing / Making ahead of time options

Mini egg pancakes are best when cooked and eaten fresh. The pancakes are soft and fluffy when warm. They can be kept in the fridge and then reheated in the microwave in 20 second bursts until piping hot all the way through.

How long do mini eggs last?

Mini eggs can last for months at a time. You’ll see the use by date on the package and that will tell you exactly how long the mini eggs will last. If you keep them in a dry, cool cupboard they will stay at their best.

What are small pancakes called?

Little pancakes don’t have a special name, they may just be called mini pancakes! Some people may call them a Dutch pancake. I like making my pancakes as big as possible so I can eat all of it!

Can you add chocolate to pancakes?

Yes! You can absolutely add chocolate to pancakes. It will taste delicious and add a great depth of flavour to your breakfast.

Can you make pancake batter in advance?

Yes, making pancake batter in advance is actually better than making it fresh. I suggest making your pancake batter a few hours before you need it and leaving it to rest on the side of the counter until you’re ready to cook.

  • Melt the butter in 10 second bursts in the microwave to make sure it doesn't burn. Leave it to cool for a few minutes. (I usually get the frying pan out while waiting for it cool. It only needs a few minutes. I'd say about 3 minutes).

    1 medium egg
  • Whisk it all together along with the milk.
    250 ml milk

  • Heat up a frying pan until it’s a medium/high heat.
  • Add a little butter to the pan and allow to melt.

  • When they are done stack them on a plate, top with a few mini eggs and serve.


•As you cook them you can place the finished cooked pancakes on a plate and cover with a clean tea towel. This will help to keep warm so you can eat them all together.

    Oh, I love your fluffy pancakes. I would like to give them a try, but I am looking forward to making no sugar pancakes. Could I omit the sugar in the recipe?

    • You could swap the sugar for a sugar replacement like stevia. Or you could replace the sugar with a table spoon of honey or maple syrup.
      They might be a little runnier then but a little extra flour would sort that out x
