For the recipe  American Style Rainbow Pancakes

For the Pancakes:

1 pack American Style Pancake Mix
300 ml Whole Milk
Dr. Oetker Blue Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Pink Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Violet Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Yellow Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Green Extra Strong Food Colour Gel

For the Marshmallow Sauce:

100 g Dr. Oetker Heart Marshmallows
100 ml Double Cream

For the Decoration:

5 g Dr. Oetker Unicorn Confetti Sprinkles
Dr. Oetker Giant Chocolate Stars





Follow packet instructions. Pour the 300ml Milk and the American Style Pancake Mix into a bowl and mix with a whisk or an electric mixer until smooth. 


Divide the mix into 5 small Bowls (adding a little more mixture to two of the bowls) and stir in a 1/4 tsp of Colour Gel into each bowl. Add a few more drops of colour if desired to achieve a brighter colour. 


Heat a small amount of butter/oil in a large, circular frying pan, over a medium heat. 


Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of batter into the pan per pancake - each pancake should be about 8 cm wide and 1 cm deep. Make sure the pancakes aren't too close together as they will spread during cooking. 


Cook the pancakes until bubbles start to appear, using a spatula flip the pancakes over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes on the other side. Transfer to a plate lined with Kitchen Roll. Repeat the above step for each colour batter, double up on two of the colours from the first step and you should end up with 7 pancakes. Once all the pancakes are cooked you can stack them up to create a Rainbow pancake tower!


For the Marshmallow Sauce

In a Saucepan gently melt the Heart Marshmallows with the cream. The sauce will thicken slightly as it cools. 


Stack the pancakes on a plate, pour on some Marshmallow Sauce and top with Dr. Oetker Unicorn Confetti Sprinkles and White Giant Chocolate Stars. 

To create the perfect colours add 1/4 tsp of each colour to the batter. This will create bright and bold coloured pancakes!
