I have the perfect breakfast idea for Valentine’s Day. My boys absolutely loved the idea of heart shaped pancakes.
And the best part? They did not mind that the pancakes were pink. They actually thought that was pretty cool and they want pink, heart shaped pancakes every day now.
I am going to show you how easy this is.
You Will Need:
- a batch of buttermilk pancakes from scratch
- pink food coloring
- heart shaped pancake rings
- griddle like this one
- non-stick cooking spray (We love coconut oil cooking spray.)
- butter, for topping the pancakes
- maple syrup
Whip up a batch of the buttermilk pancake recipe shared above.
Add 5-7 drops of pink food coloring.
Place the griddle on a burner that is medium-low heat. I keep it between a 4 and a 5 setting.
Spray the griddle with non-stick spray.
Spray the heart pancakes rings well with the non-stick spray as well (this is key).
Cook until the tops of the pancakes are covered in bubbles. You want to make sure the batter is set before you pull the ring off.
Slowly remove the heart ring and if none of the batter starts draining you can flip it.
Let it cook on the other side.
Remove the pancakes from the griddle and top with butter and maple syrup.
Devour them. These are so easy and so delicious!
