My girls wanted pancakes this morning. And not just any pancakes, but pancakes with pictures. I'm sure most of you cooks out there know how to do this, but I thought I'd post them any way. I start off with a really basic fluffy pancake recipe:
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup of milk
1 Tbls. sugar
1/4 cup butter (melted) or oil
1 tsp vanilla
Combine the dry ingredients. Combine the wet ingredients and pour into the dry. Stir well.
To make the designs, you can use a small spoon, but if you have a squeeze bottle it is much easier.
Heat up the pan, make your design with the pancake batter and let it cook for about 10-15 seconds. Then pour more batter over the design to make the rest of the pancake. Flip the pancakes when small bubbles rise to the top.
Remember, if you are making something that is not reversible (like an initial), be sure to make it backwards so it will be the right way when you flip it.
