It is national pancake week! If you are a pancake lover, then this article will provide you fun and creative information on how to make pancake shapes. Read to make breakfast fun and enjoyable this week!
When meals are made creatively, it encourages fussy eaters to eat and learn at the same time (make breakfast a geometry or reading lesson). Being an artistic chef for breakfast is a moderately easy duty. It only takes the following items:
Ø Metal geometric-shaped cookie cutters
Ø Non-stick cooking spray
Ø Flat griddle
Ø Pancake batter
Ø Plastic squeeze bottle
Ø Metal Spatula
Ø Butter Knife
The first thing you need to do is spray your cookie cutters with your non-stick cooking spray. Next, pre-heat your griddle to the temperature suggested by your pancake mix. You should use only a griddle with a flat cooking surface.
Once the griddle is heated, place the cookie cutters on the griddle. Make sure the cutting side is face down.
Pour the pancake batter into your plastic squeeze bottle and squeeze the pancake butter into the cookie cutters until the halfway point.
You do not want to fill the pancake batter anymore than halfway because the batter will flow over the cutters. Cook the pancakes and remove the cookie cutters with the pancakes still attached to it. Use your metal spatula to scrape your pancakes off the griddle and onto to your plates.
Once on the plates, remove the cookie cutter molds from the pancakes. Place pancakes on uncooked side back on the griddle to brown (cookie cutter molds should not be attached).
Have a happy national pancake week! Do not forget the syrup!
