Yummmm...it's Tasty Tuesday

Hello and welcome to Tasty Tuesday.  If you are anything like me, you like to have 'breakfast' for dinner!  Well, one of my favorite 'breakfast foods' is homemade pancakes.  Yummy!  I have a wonderful recipe that I got from my beautiful mama, Deane, of Who is God?  I am guessing that she got it from her mama and so on.  Anyway, this recipe is probably the best pancake recipe I've ever had.  In fact, I won't order pancakes if we go out because I know I won't like them! 

And, since today is Valentine's Day...why not make 'Valentine' pancakes?  I think whoever you are serving will love them, too!  

Here's the fabulous recipe:
2 cup Flour
5 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
6 Tbsp. sugar
2 Eggs
2 cups Milk
oil (to coat pan)

Preparation Steps
1.  Mix all ingredients together.  Batter will be somewhat lumpy.  Then divide the batter evenly into two bowls. Set one bowl aside.
2.  Gently stir red food coloring into the second bowl until the batter turns a deep pink color.
3.  Prepare a flattop griddle or pan with a little oil.
4.  Cook pancakes until you have used all of the batter from both bowls.  Make sure you make an even number of pancakes and that you have the same amount from each bowl.
5.  When the pancakes are finished, place them on a wire cooling rack or a sheet of foil for two minutes. Then, transfer to a clean cutting board.
6.  Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut a heart out of the center of each pancake .
7.  Place a red mini-pancake heart in the center of each white pancake and a white mini-pancake heart in the center of each red pancake.
8.  Serve with butter and if you like, you can also serve some warm syrup.  Add some sliced strawberries for a festive look.
Mmmm...I think I might just have to do this for dinner myself.  My honey will love it!

  1. These are so sweet! My husband doesn't eat pancakes, but I can see him being just as pleased when he sees the smiles on our kids faces when they get to eat such delicious cuteness.

    Thanks so much for sharing your mother's recipe!

  2. Pancakes are my kids fave. We made this this morning. :)

  3. What a neat idea. I never thought of making pancakes like that before.
