Fun Shaped Spelt Pancakes

Posted in Home Made Cooking | Sweets

I know it’s not really educational but I admit it – I love playing with my food! 🙂

This is how I came up with these fun pancakes. If you want your kids to eat whatever you’re serving make sure there’s a gimmick.

Not that I needed one in this instance, I mean after all – it IS pancakes! What kid wouldn’t like pancakes with all that sweet stuff on them, but still, I had a great excuse to play around with the food. And you know what? This idea can be a solution to almost any event or occasion you have. Here, for example: Valentine’s day? Easy, make heart shaped pancakes, write “I love you” with your food; A birthday? Easy, write your greeting with pancakes; Just want to have fun? Super easy, make fun random shapes with your kids and enjoy!

Oh, and I almost forgot, the process here is almost 100% mess proof. Using the squeeze bottle just makes it so much cleaner and easier!!

Fun Shaped Spelt Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast, Brunch
Pancakes are always fun but wait until you show the kids you can make them in super special shapes!
  • 1 cup Spelt Flour (you can use all purpose as well)
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • ¾ Cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp Vinegar (white)
  1. Combine the milk and vinegar in a large cup, mix together and let stand for 5 minutes
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients in a mixer bowl, add the milk and vinegar mix and mix all together until well combined. You can also do this part using a whisker but it’s easier with a stand mixer.
  3. Pour the pancake batter into a squeeze bottle (like the ones you use for ketchup and mustard at picnics)
  4. Using a sharp knife or scissors cut a bigger hole in the bottles nozzle. Adjust the hole size based on how much of the mix you’d like to squeeze out every time.
  5. Preheat a lightly greased frying pan (just a thin layer of butter) or a griddle to medium heat and squeeze your favorite shape.
  6. Once it starts to bubble, turn over for another 2 minutes and remove.
