Last week I made pancakes for lunch and decided to make it fun. I didn't have any fruit that would be good in pancakes (oranges and kiwi just don't work!). So I decided to make rainbow pancakes. It's so easy - just separate the batter into different bowls and add a few drops of food coloring until it's the color you want. I did red (they were more pink), orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Adding a spoonful of sugar to your batter will make your pancakes nice and fluffy.
I made mini pancakes because I wanted each child to have one of each color pancake, and I knew that they would never eat 6 pancakes each. When the pancakes were all done, I stacked them up and topped them with whipped cream and sprinkled them with various colors of sugar sprinkles. My kids gobbled them up before I even finished cooking their bacon!
Do you like to make pancakes in fun shapes or with special add-ins?
