We saw some really cool pancakes on an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. Here's our quickie version.
Pancake Mix (and what ever else your mix calls for)
Oil or ButterStep 1: Make pancake batter..follow box directions.Step 2: Fill sandwich baggy with a little bit of batter. We used 1/4 of the batter. Snip one corner of the sandwich bag...so this can be used as your piping "writing" tip.
Step 3:Grease pan with oil or butter, heat and draw your design.
Step 4: After the design is cooked a bit..the edges of your design will slightly brown, pour batter over the design of the pancake.Step 5: Continue to cook the pancake as usual...wait for the little bubbles to form and flip.
Come on... so fun and so cute! It really is okay to play with your food and my mom always said, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. "
