When I was little my mom use to make us pancakes all the time (it was/is my favorite breakfast). Once in a while she would make letters or shapes on our pancakes. She would do this by making the design with the mix then pouring more mix over it. Since the design gets to cook a little longer you will see it’s edges on the pancake and therefore see the design.
Well I was thinking about this the other day and thought, hey why couldn’t I do Jack O Lantern Pancakes? I could dye some of the mix yellow to make the face and some orange to make the pumpkin. It could work right?
You know I had to give it a shot, so we tried it for dinner last night (who else loves breakfast for dinner?). After I picked up my oldest from school I told her what we were going to make and of course she wanted to help. So she helped me make the pancake mix and then mix the colors.
I will say that I had a harder time than I thought I would making the faces, getting the mix in a triangle just did not happen. But I still think they came out cute and both the girls loved them so I say they were a HIT! I think I now know what we will be having for breakfast Halloween Morning!
