Heart Shaped Pancakes
With my husband working nights I wanted to do something special for him for the few hours I had with him Saturday morning - so I made pancakes - but not just any pancakes - heart shaped pancakes! I used valentines day cookie cutters and it worked fairly well - but there might be a better way to go about making shaped pancakes.
I could have used:
A heart shaped pan - but that would cost me $71
Nestle had the same idea I did - but theirs looks better
Good Without Gluten did it the same way but sprayed the cookie cutters with Pam - ah ha! (and their recipe sounds tons better than plain old out-of-box pancake mix I used
Amazon has actual pancake molds with little handles so you don't burn your fingers trying to get pancakes out of the cutter like I did
Peanut Butter & Julie just hand pipes hers without a mold - ha! mine would look like blobs if I didn't have the extra help of the molds
Sur La Table has a whole heart shaped griddle!
