Rainbow Buttermilk Pancakes


In a large bowl add the dry ingredients.  Make a well in the centre and add the butter, egg and buttermilk. With a whisk combine together until a smooth batter is formed.

Divide the batter into 4 bowls and add the colouring to each bowl and mix.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a moderate heat, drizzle a little oil or butter in the pan and add ½ a ladleful of batter. Once small bubbles form and burst the pancakes are ready to turn. Cook for a further 2 minutes. Repeat the process until all the pancakes are cooked. Serve with maple syrup.
