Smiley Face Pancakes

Having a slumber party?  This is a great breakfast idea for children.  They love to help decorate their pancake and are more apt to eat it all.  3 eggs, separated

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Strawberries
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Banana’s
  • Orange slices (peeled)
  • Canned Whipped Cream

Beat egg yolks until light.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.  Add alternately with the milk.  Beat egg whites stiff and fold into flour mixture.  Bake on hot griddle.

To form the smiley face, Pour one large round circle of pancake batter, placing two smaller ones in the 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock postitions for the ears. Carefully turn over as to not lose the ears.  Spray two small curved lines of whipped cream for the eye brows.  Place two orange slices underneath for the eyes.  Place strawberry in the center for the nose. Make the mouth with a banana (cut in half length ways) or a big curved line of whipped cream, carefully placing chocolate chips for the teeth.  Place one chocolate chip in the bottom lower part of the ear. 

You can decorate this pancake with just about any fruit, or just let the children use their imagination.
