- 1 quantity of our classic Scotch pancake batter
- 50ml milk
- Red, orange and green gel food colouring
- Start by making up a batch of scotch pancake batter – we’ve added 50ml milk to make it easier to shape in the pan.
- Divide the batter into three and add either the green, orange or red food gel colouring to each batch before putting them into separate squeezy sauce bottles.
- Heat a frying pan on a medium heat and start by making the turtle’s mask with the red batter.
- Follow by making a circle around the mask for the monster’s face and then follow by drawing its body, arms and legs.
- Flip the pancake over to make sure both sides are cooked. Repeat this with different coloured masks.
- Place the monsters onto a plate and add their eyes over their masks and they’re ready to serve.
