These are so so delicious and spongy that they will soon become your child’s favourite breakfast.or yours!
Ingredients for Pancake Bites
Here are the ingredients for plain pancake bites.You can add your toppings like blueberries or chocolate chips as per your preference.
- Flour- All purpose flour.
- Baking Powder
- Sugar – the amount mentioned in the recipe will give you very subtle sweetness which pairs well with the sweet chocolate bits(if using) or if using syrup.
- Milk- Whole is better but 2% is also ok
- Oil to grease the moulds so that they come out easily.You can use a spray or use generous amount of coconut oil.
How to make Pancake Bites in the Instant Pot
You can make this using 1 mould or 2 moulds.This recipe is for 2 mould, you can easily halve it to make it in just 1 mould.
Step 1: Measure and Prep
Measure out the dry ingredients- flour,baking powder,Salt and sugar.Melt the butter
Step 2: Mix the Batter
Mix the dry ingredients first.Add milk, eggs and melted butter.Give is a good whisk till all ingredients are incorporated.You should’nt see any dry bits.
You can add the chocolate chips at this point.They tend to sink a little bit but not completely.
Step 3: Add Batter to the mould
Wash, dry and Grease the mold. Make sure you do this step well so the bites come out whole after cooking.I find thicker oils like coconut oil work better than thinner vegetable oil.
Add batter to the instant pot egg bites mold. This recipe should yield about 10-12 bites.If you have only 1 mold, you can halve the recipe.
Fill it only till its 3/4 way full as it will rise while pressure cooking.
Step 4:Pressure Cook
Add 1 cup of water to the inner pot if the instant pot.
Place the mold on the instant pot trivet.Cover it with the lid or aluminium foil.Lower it inside the instant pot.
Close the lid and select PRESSURE COOK for 10 minute on HIGH pressure with the valve in SEALING position.
After the time is up, wait for 10 minutes before quick releasing the pressure and opening the instant pot lid.
