Heart Shaped Pancakes : )

Hey there!

Ok, so I’ve been putting off writing the first post on this blog probably because of lack of inspiration or just plain-old timidity?! Well now that the dry spell’s over allow me to officially welcome you to our blog. Hoorah! Boom. Boom. boom * fireworks*

A few months back my sister (Ross) stumbled upon this awesome easy to do Martha Stewart Heart Pancake recipe! I know right! Was already sold on the pancake part, and Martha Stewart that’s just ssssweet! I know you can’t wait coz I can’t. So let’s do this.

Here’s what you’ll need

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly, plus 1 tablespoon for griddle

Directions

  1. Preheat griddle to 375 degrees, or heat griddle pan over medium-high heat. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. Add egg, milk, and 2 tablespoons melted butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps.
  2.  Test griddle by sprinkling with a few drops of water. If water bounces and spatters, it is hot enough. With paper towel, brush 1/2 teaspoon butter onto griddle. Wipe off excess.
  3. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch plain round tip with batter; twist end of bag, and secure with rubber band. Working in batches, pipe heart shapes, drawing V of batter in center of hearts to fill, on heated griddle. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around the edges, about 2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on the bottom, about 1 minute.
  4. Repeat with remaining batter, using 1/2 teaspoon butter on griddle for each batch, keeping finished pancakes on a heat-proof plate in the oven until ready to serve.

And since it’s mother’s day tomorrow, we’re making our first post an homage to all of our kind-loving-self-sacrificing-but-sometimes-drives-me-crazy-mothers out there. It’s great that we get to do the first post and dedicate it to all the dear mothers … especially to our very own– Mrs. B. It’s like hitting two birds with a Mother rock! Happy mother’s day!

P.S

Why not give this easy recipe a try and surprise your mom with a special breakfast in bed, tell us what you think and how it went…

  1. I make heart-shaped pancakes for my partner. They always make him smile! LOL Thanks for checking out my blog.

  2. Someone after my old heart. I grew up on pancakes made the “old fashion way.” When I would visit my grandmother, she would say “What do you want for breakfast?” My answer was always, “Pancakes.” Hot oil in the skillet, I would watch the batter rise into thick creations that I could not wait to get my hands on. Lots of butter, thick syrup and down the hatch they would go!
    Thanks for visiting my site and liking, “My oh My…Hamburger Mary’s (CA chp.1) as well as the pancake memories!
