Love on a Plate ~ Love Pancakes

Love Pancakes

It is the month of LOVE.

My parents always sent us to school with hot breakfasts. It really meant a lot to me. I felt loved. Especially in my teenage years. I try to do the same thing for our kids.

Add some extra love to your family’s breakfast and send them off for the day with a little something special on their plates and in their stomachs.

This is one of our favorite ways to make breakfast special. We use this trick for Birthday breakfasts but you can use it for all holidays.

If you really want to be sneaky, put the pancakes on the plates with the message down and have your kids flip them to discover the surprise.

OR…Make them for your significant other, Put a letter or two in each pancake and “serve” him a lovey message.

You already have everything you need right in your pantry.

Make your favorite pancakes. We are Bisquick fans in our house. From scratch works great also.

Love Pancakes

Take about 1/3 of your batter and put it in a separate bowl.

Add RED FOOD COLORING. There are lots of great natural food colors out there, so you can make this dye-free and use natural colors.

Mix the batter thoroughly so there are no lumps.

Fill a pipping bag, ziplock bag, or squeeze bottle with the red batter. The smoother the batter, the better. Lumps will get stuck as you pipe.

Love Pancakes

Get your pan ready and use the pipping bag to pipe your first message.

Be sure if you are doing a word like LOVE, that you pipe it backwards, so it will read the right way when it’s eaten.

Once the RED message starts to cook, pour the white batter right over the top.

Be creative with your designs. The possibilities are endless.

Flip the pancake and get ready for the fun.

Use the leftover red and pipe a Red heart. If you want, you could color all your batter red and serve RED HEART pancakes on LOVE DAY.

Happy Heart Day. Share the love.
