Pancake Tuesday with the NumNoms

Published February 13, 2018 by Bizzimummy

It’s pancake day once again and although I detest the things, my children seem to love them. My girls also love NumNoms so we’re only too happy to participate in our Num Noms pancake champion challenge.

Now yes I know it’s early in the day, but when did that ever stop Blue Peter from showcasing anything? Yes we made a few yesterday and this morning, but firstly here are the contents of the lovely NumNoms pancake parcel we received.

So we have lots of pancake mix and sweet pancake toppings. Some brand new NumNoms and light up NumNoms too. And yes the pan is a real pan. I did have to query that one as I wasn’t too sure, but just look 👀

This has to be the most cutest pan I’ve ever seen, it also has a Valentine’s theme to it too.

My girls are keen collectors of NumNoms and have literally hundreds from all the series. We are now on series 4.1 and series 2.1 for the light up flashing NumNoms.

NumNoms are perfect for occasions like Pancake Tuesday because they are all based on food items and mainly the sweet stuff which is what my kids love on their pancakes.

Unfortunately I am hopeless at tossing, so whilst the pancake may look perfect on one side, they don’t turn out perfect once I manage to flip the damn things. So it’s a good job the toppings cover up the disaster.

Hmm it’s sort of still heart shaped I guess and it went down a treat with some sweet stuff on top.

Of course this little pan oh gives little pancakes which are fine for the small people like Izebella, but teenage boys want something bigger that’s not heart shaped.

So a normal round one it was.

And yes we still have lots more mixture to get through tonight and lots more toppings and crazy NumNoms to make flavours from. I will be happily making them, my kids will be eating them.

Pancake day with Num noms

Published February 28, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Well incase you forgot, it is pancake day today or shrove Tuesday if you prefer. We do pancakes every year even tho I’m not a fan myself, my children love it.

This year we are taking part in a Num noms campaign “what’s your flavour” and it involves incorporating the new num noms series 3 with our pancake recipes. 

These are the new series 3!  With a lunchbox yet sweet theme.


So armed with a bottle of this stuff!  – (No I don’t even attempt them from scratch!) plus…..

A non stick frying pan too, along with an open door and working smoke alarm, off I went to make pancakes.

Oh and of course a few toppings too with a few inedible additions here. 


Attempt #1 – went totally wrong, the damn thing would not turn and stuck to the “non stick” frying pan! I don’t do flipping either, way too scary, I just use two pans and flip the pancake into the other one.

#Attempt 2 – a bit better, tho not round like it started out. Still Izebella didn’t mind what shape it was and was more than happy to decorate it. 


I think we have Sara strawberry Num nom here at the front along with two others. Izebella has a box full of hundreds of them and I only know a few of the foodie names.

Onto the third attempt and much better, I’m getting the hang of this now! Jordanna’s creation a little more basic with the ingredients but not so with the Num noms!

Yes she chose all the pink, white and chocolate coloured Num noms to represent her toppings – chocolate spread, marshmallow fluff and strawberries. 

I think Izebella got slightly carried away on the next attempt and covered the pancake with Num noms.

She did find Maya mallow, after a bit of digging in the box, and placed her proudly on top of the marshmallow. 
And Ryan doesn’t really do Num noms on his plate, however he can make an almost perfect round pancake his self, much better than my previous attempts. 

Breakfast from Birds eye

Published May 9, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Yes you read this post title right, Birds eye are now doing a frozen breakfast range too and we were only too happy to help sample it. 
In my local Iceland store the new products were in the first freezer I came too, (they can be found in most supermarkets). The products include sweet waffles, pancakes and croissants (the latter was not in store unfortunately).


The pancakes come as classic and choc chip and no prizes for guessing which we chose! 

My kids were quite bemused that they could have birds eye products for breakfast, being that they are more used to fish fingers and nuggets from the same company. They also found it strange having something frozen.

The waffles and pancakes both take just minutes to make and both go in the toaster.


Both are sweet to begin with but for added flavour or sweetness you can turn them into an American style breakfast by adding maple syrup.


Or be a bit more adventurous or healthy and eat them with fruit, yoghurt or anything else. 


They make really tasty alternatives to just having toast and so quick to make too. 

Iceland currently have a 2 for £3 deal on these packs.
