Animal Pancakes - Day 32

Today was a good day to play with food!

Pancakes in mouse/bear shapes.

Everyone has a basic pancake recipe they use and love.
I have tried different versions, but have found the simplist to be (about) one of everything. Has made teaching children easier as well, as they can easily convert for more people.
For 2 people (about 4 thick pancakes each)

1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tblsp Baking Powder
1 Cup flour
1 Tblsp Sugar
1 pinch salt
1 Tbl melted butter.
 - melt butter in pan then pour into everything else - mix till a batter and cook.

WARNING - if you every get the urge to make shapes in a pan, DO NOT use plastic cutters. Yes, in hindsight this is OBVIOUS, but with brain still half asleep and coffee deprived..... No more gingerbread man :(

  1. I agree with the one of everything recipe being best I was over 35 when I puzzled out that bit of supposedly common knowledge. They make metal cutters for a reason.
