Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time
3 People  10-15 Minutes  10-15 Minutes


  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup maida
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp water

For the Pirate Topping

  • Apple slices
  • Banana slices
  • Oreo cookie
  • Chocolate chip
  • Strawberry Jam


Step 1

In a bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix slightly. Add milk and oil. Whisk together until just combined. Set aside and let it rest for a few minutes.

Step 2

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add butter to it. As soon as it melts, add the melted butter to the pancake batter.

Step 3

Place the skillet back on the stove.

Step 4

Stir the pancake batter. Add a ladle full of the batter onto the skillet for the pancake.

Step 5

When the pancake is cooked on one side, bubbles will form on the surface. Flip it and let it cook on the other side.

Step 6

Repeat the process with the rest of the batter to get about 4 pancakes.

Step 7

Place a pancake in a serving plate and arrange the apple slices on the pancake in the shape of a bandana. See the image for reference.

Step 8

Split an Oreo cookie and place it for the eye patch. The chocolate chips form the string that holds the eye patch. Use a banana slice and a chocolate chip for the other eye. Another chocolate chip for the nose.

Step 9

A slice of apple goes for its mouth. Do the same with the rest of the pancakes. Serve with strawberry jam. Enjoy!
