Although my boys are quite young yet to understand why we celebrate St. Patricks day (we are a 1/4 irish, or well, I am, I guess that mekes them like 1/8? what evs we're irish enough :p) Anyway, I like to have fun with my pancakes on holidays like this.
so here they are:
and my son noticed one attempt at a pot'o'gold looked kinda l ike a snail, so I made a real snail too
This is my own pancake recipe, that I alter every time I make it, but these ones turned out great, so I'll do it again this way
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla extract
mix the wet ingredients, and then add the flour, sugar, and baking powder, mix until it is all incorperated. If there are a few little lumps thats okay. In this batch I added some green food coloring. you know, cause shamrocks are green right?
To make designs , just think of a line drawing and wing it. lol just make sure your pan is quite hot, otherwise the lines will just blend.
