Saw it on Pinterest and Tried to Recreate it: Heart Doily Pancakes

I think we've all been inspired by Pinterest, right?

So in trying to cook at home more often,

I've taken some ideas from Pinterest and tried them out.


Read on to see my lace doily pancakes...



Yup, that was a fail! It was actually fun though. I made normal pancake batter, scooped some into a plastic baggie, and snipped off a corner of the bag. I think the baggie was a major source of my problems. It wasn't rigid and the hole may have been too big. In any case, the batter wanted OUT! Making precise designs was difficult when the batter just splooted everywhere. (Yes, splooted.)


PhotobucketNot wanting to stop with hearts, I went on to letters. My son was thrilled to receive a "J." However, it's important to remember that the underside will be the beautiful side. So don't forget to write your letters backwards! My husband luckily noticed and corrected me before I taught Little J all his letters backwards.


Overall it was a lot of fun and pancakes are an inexpensive, fun, and easy meal to make at home from scratch. If you end up trying these Valentine's pancakes, I'm really curious to see how they turn out!

Happy Valentine's Cooking!
