Icecream is one of kids’ favorite desserts! And although few parents would be willing to allow their children to have it for breakfast, today we bring an idea that will be the exception to the rule: icecream for breakfast!
Everyone can have fun cooking as a family and can make the icecream flavors and colors they like the most. Let us explain how:
What you’ll need:
Pancake batter (and the ingredients needed to prepare it)
Purple, pink and brown food coloring
Pan or griddle
Minimum amount of oil
Four squeeze bottles
- Prepare the pancake batter according to package instructions.
- Divide the batter into three bowls.
- Put two drops of food coloring in each of the bowls (one color for each bowl) and mix.
- Fill the squeeze bottles with the batters.
- Put the pan on the stovetop on low heat. If you are using a griddle, set it to 190ºC (375ºF).
- Add the minimum amount of oil to the griddle or pan, just enough to avoid the pancake sticking to the pan.
- With the small bottle that has the brown batter, create the shape of an icecream cone on the pan, like a triangle.
- With the small bottle that has the purple batter, create the shape of the icecream scoop, like a cloud.
- Using the bottle with the brown batter, create diagonal-crossed lines inside of the cone to make it more fun.
- 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).
- Fill in the cone with the brown batter and the icecream with the purple batter.
- Wait for the pancake to bubble, that’s when you’ll know it’s time to use the spatula.
- Flip it over very carefully and wait for it to finish browning on the other side, it usually takes about a minute.
