Pancake Day With the Dogs? Let's Share a Treat!

Mmmm...Pancake Day is tomorrow! Want to share a tasty treat?  I always make pancakes without adding sugar (plenty sweet with maple syrup for the humans), so the dogs can enjoy a little puppy pancake with the family. My favourite pancakes have many variations, but are usually based on a simple 1:1:1 mix ratio, scaled for the number of hungry humans (and hounds) - i.e. for every 1 cup of self raising flour, use 1 cup wet ingredients and 1 egg.  Because I often use yogurt for part of my wets, they're usually extra thick and cakey. Yum! Just for fancy fun, these particular pancakes were made using a large bone-shaped biscuit cutter to shape the batter in the pan instead of being my usual free-form batter dollops. The carob drizzle is simply a carob powder mixed with melted coconut oil. I also cut the strawberries (fresh from our garden, as was the mint) into hearts. :)

Tips and Tricks:
  • Cool your dog's puppy pancake prior to serving.
  • You may wish to cut the dog's pancake into small pieces before serving. This is a great way to accelerate cooling, but also prolongs the enjoyment since an uncut little puppy pancake treat is a single mouthful for big eaters!
