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!!
- 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)
- Combine the milk and vinegar in a large cup, mix together and let stand for 5 minutes
- 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.
- Pour the pancake batter into a squeeze bottle (like the ones you use for ketchup and mustard at picnics)
- 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.
- Preheat a lightly greased frying pan (just a thin layer of butter) or a griddle to medium heat and squeeze your favorite shape.
- Once it starts to bubble, turn over for another 2 minutes and remove.
