Last week I came across a Yahoo article about a guy who makes fun pancakes for his 3 year old. Now this guy is super talented and is an artist by profession, and I can assure you I am neither. He places his batter in squeeze bottles and draws on the griddle to make all sort of really neat things.
I bought a few squeeze bottles to give it a whirl. I mixed up 3 colors, green, brown and orange. I made my usual pancake batter (already on this site) thinning it out with whole milk so it could be squeezed through the opening. I placed batter into the bottles and shook in the colors. Here are a few photos of the pancakes I made. This is really fun.
My batter was a little too thin especially after adding the color and they spread more than I wanted. Next time I know the batter will squeeze out without it being quite as thin. Also, if you draw big pancakes, you will have a dickens of a time flipping them. My pumpkin was too big and the batter spread making tough to flip.
