And to be honest, we’re using up a lot of those right now. Sometimes in life, you do that! The kids have been staying up late over the weekends to watch special movies. We’ve said “yes” to ice cream more than we usually do. Meal making is special these days too, now that the kids are old enough to help in the kitchen. I have never liked waffles, but I LOVE pancakes. And these are so special! Look at those colors. As you know, I love everything rainbow, because I somehow believe that color makes food taste better. And if you believe it, that makes it real, right? Right.
What You Need:
1 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 cup whole milk
2 tbsp oil
2 drops violet gel food coloring
1 stick butter, softened
2 drops red gel food coloring
1/2 cup of condensed milk
Yields: Approx. 8-10 small pancakes
What You Do:
1 – Start by sifting your flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar and whisk.
2 – Add egg, milk, and oil and whisk until batter forms and is smooth.
3 – Divide the batter in 2 bowls and color each one with its respective gel food colorings. Mix until each bowl of batter is completely tinted.
4 – On a hot skillet (heated over medium heat) sprayed with cooking oil and/or coated with butter, pour ¼ cup of the batter and cook until bubbles form on top. Flip and cook until edges lift/turn a very light brown.
5 – Stack pancakes on a plate and pour over your condensed milk. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles and enjoy the sweet magic!
