I love finding ways to infuse a little heart fun into the days preceding Valentine’s Day. Therefore, the sweet heart is a leading character in our home and often takes the form of food like these heart pancakes. Although I have a heart pancake mold, my little girl likes these “pink on white” pancake hearts.
These are a cinch to make:
Make your favorite pancake batter. Remove a bit of the batter and place it in a small bowl. Add as many drops of red food coloring to achieve your desired color and stir (I use 3 drops). Pour the colored batter into a squeeze bottle (I use my icing squeeze bottle). Begin cooking pancakes as you normally would using the “white” batter. Let pancakes cook for about 30 seconds and then squirt heart shapes on the pancakes using squeeze bottle. Continue cooking as you normally would.
