DIY Star Pancakes
Wow, the holiday weekend flew by but I thought I’d share one breakfast delight I enjoyed. We made star pancakes to celebrate the holiday but fun-shaped pancakes can be enjoyed all year in a variety of shapes. Simply stock up on some fun cookie cutters and get flippin’!
I used this super easy pancake recipe for the batter, and for some added fun, we added food coloring to some of the batter after mixing it. Keep your heat lower when cooking to avoid burn marks. Then, simply cook large circular pancakes (large enough to accomodate the cookie cutter shapes you plan to use).
I wait a few minutes after they are cooked so they are slightly less hot to use the cookie cutters to create the fun shapes. I topped mine with some delicious blueberries and coconut along with some honey. Choose your favorite pancake toppings and your done—fun, simple pancakes that are sure to shake up your typical weekend pancakes and that kids are sure to love!
