What you need for naturally dyed pancakes:
- Pancake Batter. (Make it from scratch with this recipe)
- Frozen Blueberries and/or a Can of Beets.
- Squeeze Bottle.
Making Your Valentine’s Day Breakfast Pancakes:
To create your natural pancake batter dye, just reduce your berries and/or beets over medium temperature.
Add a little water to the berries if needed. It doesn’t take much juice to dye your batter.
Strain and let cool completely before adding to your batter.
Mix batter and juice together and then add into the squeeze bottles. I cut the tip off of my bottle to let out the thicker batter.
I use this all of the time to make fun pancakes even without using the dye.
Create your heart, let sit a moment, then add the plain pancake batter around the edges. Continue to cook like a standard pancake.
Your little ones are going to love these special heart pancakes! They aren’t just for Valentine’s Day breakfast either. You can do this to make a birthday or the first day of school special too!
If you don’t make your batter from scratch I highly suggest you give it a try. It is really quite simple and very inexpensive! Check out our recipe here!
