rainbow pancakes

Late night browsing through Pinterest I came across a picture of a stack of rainbow pancakes
and they were just so pretty that it inspired me to bake up my very own batch of colorful
pancakes, the next morning. No special occasion or anything just for my very own enjoyment
but kids would definitely go crazy over these, aren't they cute?

I made a batch of my favorite basic pancake recipe, (you will never buy boxed pancake mix
 again!) divided the pancake mix into six and added a tiny bit of food coloring to make all six 
colors of the rainbow. One batch of this recipe makes 12 thin pancakes; 2 red, 2 orange, 
2 yellow, 2 green, 2 blue and 2 purple. If you don't care for these pretty, colored pancakes
skip the food coloring and make a regular batch, way better than the stuff from the box!

Basic Pancakes
feeds 4-5
recipe from food network magazine


- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 3 T. sugar
- 1 T. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 1/4 c. milk
- 1/2 stick butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 t. vanilla extract

1. Whisk all dry ingredients together in medium bowl.

2. Whisk all wet ingredients together in a small bowl,
then whisk into the flour mixture until just combined.

3. Ladle a little less than 1/4 c. pancake batter onto a
hot buttered skillet and cook until bubbly. Flip and cook 
until golden on the bottom. 

Keep them warm in a 200 degree oven while you
finish cooking the whole batch.

Serve with syrup, jam or fresh fruit and whipped cream
and of course a tall glass of cold milk!

Enjoy <3
