DIY Foodie: Heart Shaped Pancakes

Bella love pancakes so much. She feels so happy every time I make pancakes for her but I also see to it that she enjoy every pancake moment. I tried exploring different ways to do it like adding colors, trying different toppings like the colorful pancakes I shared with you before.

But, of all the pancakes, the heart shaped ones are her favorite. Well, I have a thing for hearts that is why I have a heart ring molder that I use for cooking eggs and pancakes too. It is nice to see a heart foodie on the plate!

Pink Pancake Hearts

Simply adding colors to your pancake could be so much fun. Why don't you try pink hearts? Even blue hearts will look yummy! I did this using heart rings too and Bella loved eating them. She didn't want to eat the round ones, only the heart shaped pancakes. 


Hahaha! So, you believed me now that she loved the pink heart pancakes? Trivia: It wasn't easy to get the picture of the pancakes above because Bella kept on getting Crumbs from the plate and she kept on eating the I needed to hide just to take the photo.

Pancake Hearts Chocolate Overload

In making this, all you have to do is follow the usual pancake recipe and add some cocoa powder into it. For the white filling, I used a little flour, milk and sugar mixed together on s boiling water until they are a bit sticky. Then, finish the love with some chocolate syrup on it. Now, that is chocolate overload!

Eating pancakes will no longer be boring if you experiment with them. Why don't you try it too?

DIY Foodie: Yummy Colorful Pancakes

colored pancakes

Pancake is one of the easiest healthy snack you can give your little loves. You can make one for them any time of the day for it won't take long to finish it. Today, I made colored pancakes to add more excitement to snack time. Here are the ingredients and how you'll make it:

All-purpose flour
2 Eggs
Baking powder
2 tablespoons of Butter/Vegetable Oil
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract (optional)

1. Break the egg on a bowl and beat them.
2. Add sugar depending on the amount you desire.
3. Add melted butter or vegetable oil to the mix. You can add milk and vanilla extract here too.
4. Then add flour and baking powder.
5. You can keep on adding flour and water until you arrive at the right consistency. Just make sure you will be able to pour it on a pan.
6. If you are mixing by hand, be sure to mix it for 100 times so it will be mixed well.
7. Then separate them into different bowls to add food coloring. In my pancakes, I used pink , green and blue. You can have more colors if you want.

8. After that, heat your pan and your ready to cook your pancakes. In my case, I no longer placed butter on the pan for I placed oil on the mixture. But you can also place butter if you want to. Either way, it will still work. Just see to it that the pancake will not stick on the pan. Make sure not to press it while cooking so it can be fluffy. Just leave it until the top is quite dry before you flip it. You can also notice that the edges are starting to get brown. 
9. Then you've got yummy colorful pancakes.
10. Top it with butter and sugar. You can also try using chocolate syrup!

So, if your kids are kinda bored of the usual yellowish pancakes, then why don't you color them? You can also try using molders to have pancakes of various shapes. That would make your kid's snack time fun and healthy at the same time!
