iPhoneography // Heart Pancakes

With nowhere to be this morning, Miss G and I declared it a pancake day.  Her request?  Making them heart-shaped.  {Why not, right?}  We whipped up a batch of our usual wholewheat flax and oat pancake batter and attempted to make it pink with the addition of beet juice.  It didn’t work the way I was hoping it would {or at all really}, but oh well!  We put our batter into the same squeeze bottle we use when we make spiderweb pancakes, and then simply created heart-shaped outlines and filled them in.

Our recipe makes a ridiculous amount of pancakes, but that’s just fine with us because they  freeze well and make for quick and easy toaster pancakes in the following weeks.

The other request Miss G had was to create a special pancake just for Papa so he could enjoy it when he got home from work.  I filled up the squeeze bottle and let her {carefully} create her masterpiece.

Here’s the finished product in all its glory.  It was fittingly declared a ‘brain pancake’ and it was huge – that’s a dinner plate!

With Papa’s after school snack prepared, we decided that strawberries would be a nice addition to our breakfast, so heart-shaped ones it was!

In the meantime, Gracen prepared the table by setting out placemats, cutlery, and a glass of water for each of us.  {Setting the table is her new thing and I don’t mind one bit.}
