Fun Animal Pancakes


What do little kids love more than pancakes? FUN pancakes!!! There are lots of ways to make their breakfast a little cuter. I made these animal pancakes last Sunday, and even though my babies cannot speak full sentences yet, I could see the excitement in their eyes. I'll show you how to do them below, they're very easy and fun! You can also use cookie cutters to easily cut pancakes into fun shapes (hearts, stars, butterflies, and so on)



See how I made the Pancake Dough using the Bisquick mix.

PIGGY PANCAKES:

1. Onto a preheated griddle (375F), drop 1/4 cup of dough for the face, 1/8 cup for the snout, and 1/8 cup for the ears (the last will be halved to make two ears)
2. Cook for 1 minute or until edges are dry and turn until golden
3. Place the face on the bottom of plate
4. For the snout, poke 2 holes to make the nostrils using the end handle of a wooden spoon
5. Cut the ear piece into two parts for the piggy ears
6. Use chocolate chips or fresh blueberries for the eyes

LADYBUG PANCAKES:

1. Onto a preheated griddle (375F), drop slightly less than 1/4 cup of dough for the body, 1/8 cup for the head, and slightly less than 1/4 cup for the wings (the last will be halved to make two wings)
2. Cook for 1 minute or until edges are dry and turn until golden
3. Place the body piece on the bottom of plate
4. Halve the head piece for the head (we'll only use one half) and place two chocolate chips or fresh blueberries as the eyes
5. Cut the wing piece into two parts to make the wings and assemble as shown in the picture
6. Use chocolate chips or fresh blueberries to dot the wings
7. Use pink decorating gel to paint the antennas on the plate

SCORPION PANCAKES:
(My husband actually made this one)

1. Onto a preheated griddle (375F), drop about 1/2 tbsp of dough into an oval shape to make the legs (repeat to make 8 legs), 1/8 cup into an oval shape for the body, and less than 1/8 cup into a "J" shape for the tail
2. Cook for 1 minute or until edges are dry and turn until golden
3. Place the body piece on the bottom of plate and place two chocolate chips or fresh blueberries as the eyes
4. Assemble the legs and tail as shown in the picture

BUTTERFLY PANCAKES:

1. Onto a preheated griddle (375F), drop slightly less than 1/4 cup of dough (repeat to make 4 circles for the wings), drop 1/8 cup into an oval shape for the body (mine wasn't long enough in the picture so I used two pieces to lengthen it), and drop about 1 tbsp of dough to make the head
2. Cook for 1 minute or until edges are dry and turn until golden
3. Assemble the pieces as shown in the picture and use two chocolate chips for the eyes
4.Use pink decorating gel to paint the antennas on the plate and to decorate the body with stripes
