We often have pancakes or waffles for dinner. I love nights like that when everyone enjoys dinner. Despite the treat that pancakes for dinner might be in itself, I do like making it a bit more special. A while back I shared how I make monogrammed pancakes using a medicine syringe.
On some other evening I wanted to get creative with the pancakes again, but I wanted to do something different. Using the medicine syringe again, I drew up pancake mix. I drew a basic outline of a couple of shapes and then filled it in with additional batter after letting the outline cook for a few seconds. Then I just flipped when they were browned.
Works of art? No. Smiles for my kids? Definitely! They loved them.
The only downfall is that my daughter has started to expect something special with her pancakes. Last week when we had them, she asked if there was an M for her. Oops. She forgave me.
