Pancake scribbler - drawing with pancake batter

July 23, 2011
"What do you want for breakfast?"
I ask my kids this every morning. Usually I get a blank stare or an "I don't know." 
Sometimes they will get creative and invent a new type of pancake batter, or smoothie. Sometimes they request chocolate cake waffles, or just cake.  

This time they requested "pancakes in different shapes." 

I don't know about you but I am not a pancake artist.  My pancake talents stretch as far as Mickey Mouse ears.

But this time I had a Great Idea!!! Instead of pouring on the pancakes, Squirt 'em on!

I had an extra mustard container hanging around my house. You can pick these up at the dollar store. 
I snipped the top to make the opening large enough for the thick batter and funnelled in my batter.  


It worked like a charm!
Now I can make whatever shapes I want, as long as they are flippable.
I thought about writing "good morning" but soon realized that I would need an extra wide spatula to flip such words. I settled with the more convenient "Hi" pancake for my hubby.

 I made the boys letter pancakes and they ate them up and asked for more. And with my picky eaters, that's saying something!
S for Simon.

Simple, quick, cheap, and fun!   You have to try this!

Wow, thats great!
How do Americans make pancakes so thick? In the UK, they're always so thin and flimsy, yet all american pancakes are thick and lovely. HOW DO YOU DO IT? :)
