I have many memories of my Dad trying to make a BIG pancake ‘S’ with a spoon and a little pancake batter. His sweet letters and shapes were never really identifiable. The squeeze bottle method works sooo much better, but today we are taking it up ONE more notch.
I recently spotted adorable pancake molds at Williams Sonoma.
‘Dear Williams Sonoma, I love you in so many ways. You are just a bit out of my price range’.
Due to limits on budget, I took matters into my own hands. Without further adieu, I give you my version of pancake molds in transportation shapes.
First things first. Coat your cookie cutter with non-stick spray. Don’t be shy,..get it good!
Place cookie cutter on griddle and fill it 1/2 way full with batter.
Watch out! It expands!! Make sure to only fill it half way!
After flipping your pancake, you may need to push down your pancake a little, so it’s not too thick. Wiggle the cookie cutter a little, and if you sprayed the cutter enough, it should slip right off.
The ‘new and improved’ pancake cookie cutter mold versus the ‘old but still kinda cool’ squeeze bottle method.
These adorable little pancakes make me smile.
The meal wouldn’t be complete without a little whipping cream art!
And for educational reasons, make sure to provide a bottle of whipping cream to further your child’s artistic ability.
–Don’t worry Dad. I loved your sloppy pancakes,…and for the grandkids,…I’ll show you how.
