Happy Pancake Day!
This year, Pancake Day falls on 25th February and if you’re anything like us, it’s a day not to be missed!
Whilst you are getting ready to flip a pancake (or three!!) you may be wondering if it's okay to share with your dog? The answer is yes! Pancakes are absolutely okay for dogs as long as you ensure the recipe is safe and they are only given as a special treat.
Dog friendly pancakes are similar to human pancakes, but it's important to ensure that you avoid foods that can be toxic to dogs such as human chocolate, grapes and raisins. For more human foods that your dog should avoid, check out our handy guide.
So are you ready to get those tails wagging? Here’s what you will need for the pawfect dog pancakes…
Before you Begin:
Ensure your dog is not allergic to any of the ingredients in the list below.
If using peanut butter as a topping, ensure it does not contain any artificial sweeteners such as xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.
For the Pancakes:
200g (7 oz) buckwheat flour
500ml (17 fl oz) milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vegetable oil
Your dog’s favourite filling
Why not try peanut butter, cheese or fresh strawberries
1) Measure the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the milk and beaten eggs. Whisk together, and then place the mix into the fridge for 20 minutes.
2) Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan at medium heat and pour enough batter into the pan to coat the bottom. Cook for about 30 seconds, then flip the pancake over and cook for a further minute or until both sides are golden brown.
3) Add your dogs favourite filling and allow to cool slightly before serving!
