We believe that breakfast is one of the first opportunities you have to connect with your kids. Today, we have a fun idea so that every day is different.

 

Who doesn’t love pancakes? They are versatile, fun, quick to make and very fluffy.

 

Today, we bring you a fun idea to show your kids how much you love them. The best part of all is they can also participate! Of course, taking all the safety measures needed, by letting them get involved, they will have a lot of fun and be able to work on their manual skills and imagination. Let’s get to work!

 

Heart-shaped Pancake

What you’ll need:

Pancake batter (and the ingredients needed to prepare it)

Pink food coloring

Pan or griddle

Minimum amount of oil

2 squeeze bottles

Spatula

Two bowls

 

Directions

  1. Prepare the pancake batter according to package instructions.
  2. Divide the batter into two bowls.
  3. Put two drops of food coloring in one of the bowls and mix.
  4. Fill the squeeze bottles with the batters.
  5. Put the pan on the stovetop on low heat. If you are using a griddle, set it to 190ºC (375ºF).
  6. Add the minimum amount of oil to the griddle or pan, just enough to avoid the pancake sticking to the pan.
  7. With the small bottle that has the pink batter, create the shape of a heart on the pan.
  8. Wait until it cooks a little so that the different colored batters don’t blend. Usually, one minute is enough (or when you see that the dough has dried a little).
  9. Fill in the heart with the natural colored batter.
  10. Wait for the pancake to bubble, that’s when you’ll know it’s time to use the spatula.
  11. Flip it over very carefully and wait for it to finish browning on the other side, it usually takes about a minute.
  12. Enjoy!
