How to Make Heart Shaped Pancakes (Re-Post)

 Heart Shaped Pancakes

...fluffy and golden

 Heart Shaped Pancakes

  On this cold, but bright and sunny morning, I decided to make a special Valentine's breakfast for my loving family.  Their first clue of what I had been preparing in the kitchen was a distinctive scent that drifted into the living room and filled the air with a soft warmth, a sensation of comfort and mouth watering images of fluffy, warm goodness.    

Their noses led them into the kitchen.  As both son and father scouted the area to see what it was that was waiting for them, they saw the thick, hot, golden savory ivory and pink curves, sitting on white china plate enhancing their coloring.  The mound of melted butter caught the morning light coming from the window, glittering and enticing them.

  We smothered the pancakes with fruits, whipped cream and Red Raspberry Syrup and they were so delicious.

       I have made shaped pancakes before, just not colored them in pink. I started with the basic heart shaped pancakes and suddenly I had the idea to play with food coloring.  One thing led to another, then voila!  I had pink, golden and light red pancakes.

1) These pancakes are not difficult to make; all you need is your favorite pancake recipe, either from scratch or a pancake mix of your choice, but make sure the batter is not too watery.  You want this mix to be somewhat thick. 

2) Put in a couple of drops of Liquid Red Food Coloring
into the batter until you reach your desired color, then mix.

3) Pre-heat the pan and place your Heart Pancake Molds or Heart Cookie Cutter
 in the pan, and grease the mold over the pan to prevent sticking. 

4) Pour the pancake batter into the Heart Pancake Molds or Heart Cookie Cutter
 that is inside the pan.  Let them bubble a bit on low/ medium
heat until it sets.
 Once you see the bubbles on the top of your pancake, remove the Heart Pancake Molds or Heart Cookie Cutter.  Remember that for cookie cutters you will need a tong, the cookie cutter will be hot.  Do not touch it with your hands.  At this point, flip the pancake over and cook the other side until lightly browned, the pancake is complete.

5) Repeat the steps above for more pancakes.
