When you’re entertaining young kids during the holidays—or anytime, for that matter—it’s great fun to make pancakes with faces or shapes. No special equipment is required, though I’m sure some is available. All that’s needed is a box of Hungry Jack, some imagination, and an acceptance of what ever turns out.
My granddaughters like to make pancakes in the shape of their initials. The A and H work pretty well, but the C is more of a challenge to keep in one piece. By accident, my attempt at the traditional round-shaped pancake turned into a face with ears that looked like Mickey Mouse, or at least, an affable teddy bear. I found other pancake Picassos on line composing even more ambitious art on the griddle using batter.
If you want to create fantasy art for breakfast, you might want to make an extra batch of pancake mix so everybody can get into the act.
