We LOVE Valentine’s Day at our house (no pun intended:) It’s all about the red, pink, and hearts. Here are quick and easy pancakes you make any time, but are extra special for Valentine’s Day.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Dash of salt
- 1 Tablespoon of baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups of milk
- Splash of vanilla
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In a smaller bowl, mix eggs, milk, and vanilla.
For heart-shaped pancakes, spray a metal heart-shaped cookie cutter with non stick cooking spray. Lay cutter on griddle or skillet. Pour batter into heart. Let cook for about 2 – 3 minutes, shake loose and continue cooking. Flip when golden brown. If batter runs, re-cut shape after pancake is cooked.
For personal messages, dye a small amount of pancake batter red. Using a medicine dropper, create shape or message on heated skillet. Pour plain batter over red batter to cover completely. Flip after golden brown and continue cooking until pancake is done.
