Our little girl, Daisy, is allergic to cows milk. She is also allergic to soya and there have been a few other reactions to food along the way. For the first few months of her weaning journey, I was nervous about cooking. Now I have become more confident I have been trying out lots more recipes. Recently I made dairy free fruit pancakes and today I am sharing the recipe with you:

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 8 pancakes


  • 1/2 cup plain flour gluten-free works fine
  • 1 tsp of sugar or sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of dairy free milk
  • 2 tbsps of dairy free butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 tsp of ginger
  • 1/2 cup of diced peaches
  • 2 tablespoons dairy free butter


  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt.

  2. In a separate bowl mix together the milk, melted butter, egg and ginger.

  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together. Fold the peach through.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter over a low heat in a frying pan, griddle or hot plate.

  5. Add small amounts of batter, in little circles. These are small so you can make 3-4 in a pan easily. 

  6. Once the batter begins to bubble then you can use a spatula or palette knife to flip them over. 
  7. Repeat these steps until you have used all of the pancake mixture.

There should be enough batter at least 8 pancakes. 1-2 pancakes are an ideal portion for a growing baby. These will keep for three days in the fridge. I stored mine in a storage container. These can be served at room temperature or lightly reheated either in the toaster or in a griddle pan.

My daughter is 7 months old and thoroughly enjoying feeding herself these. We are using a combination of baby led weaning and spoon feeding. This is helping our daughter experiment with a variety of foods and textures.

These are super simple, relatively cheap and fast to make. Best of all because they are thin they will cool down to a safe temperature in just a few minutes. This is a great way to get fruit into little fussy eaters and they are the ideal size for little hands to hold too.
