Strawberry Pancakes Valentine Breakfast (Pancake Art) #valentinesday

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ American breakfast of eggs, bacon, and pancakes?

Simple, yet satisfying.

This year for Valentine’s Day I thought, instead of trying to come up with something outlandish to serve for breakfast, I would offer an easy spin on this beloved classic.

Making Strawberry Pancakes Valentine Breakfast (Pancake Art) #valentinesday

Strawberry Pancakes are a pancake variety my kids love. Usually we make them with a little strawberry jam and a sprinkling of fresh diced strawberries mixed into the batter.

Our Strawberry Pancakes are light and airy with a note of fresh strawberry in each bite.

However, if you leave the diced strawberries out, so the batter is smooth and thin, you can use this recipe for Pancake Art!

Particularly, heart pancake art for Valentines Day!

Valentine Pancake Art

Using plastic kitchen squeeze bottles, you simply draw your heart design in a nonstick skillet. Start with the outline of the heart first, then draw a pattern inside. A minute later fill in the open areas to create color variation.

Flip to cook through, and serve!

To round out your plate, you can cook bacon in the oven, folding it into the shape of heart while it’s uncooked, so it turns into crispy bacon hearts. Then use metal or silicone molds to fry eggs into the shape of hearts.

You could also leave the fresh diced strawberries in the batter and use heart molds to shape your pancakes.

…But squirt bottle pancake art is much more fun!

This is a Valentine Breakfast the whole family will enjoy making together.

Heat several nonstick skillets if you have them, and let everyone make their own Stawberry Pancakes – Pancake Art!

Cook’s Notes: When you encorporate jam (sugar) into the pancake batter, the pancakes are much more likely to stick to the cooking surface. Even if you have a steel griddle, use nonstick pans.
