I Am Flipping Pancakes & Guest Blogging @ the Pinkapotamus Today!

   I am having fun doing a guest spot at the wonderful Pinkapotamus site today!  You have probably noticed their button on the bottom of my blog under places I like to party!  I love this blog and know you will too.  So grab that button and check it out. .  Don't you just love these shamrock and gold coin pancakes! Below is the recipe I shared with them today.
  Of course you could use any recipe you like for the pancake batter but here is one of my own personal and favorite recipes.

Shamrock & Pot of Gold Pancakes

1 1/2 cup(s) All Purpose Flour (unsifted)
3 1/2 teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
3/4 teaspoon(s) Salt
1 tablespoon(s) White Sugar
1 1/4 cup(s) Milk (I used fat free)
1 large egg (I used 1/4 cup of cholesterol free egg product)
2 tablespoon(s) Unsalted Butter, melted

Mix the above ingredients just until combined do not over mix.

Preheat griddle to 375 F degrees.

To finish your batter for your gold coin pancakes mix 1 cup of batter with 40 drops of yellow food coloring, 1/8 tsp of  Orange Extract, and the zest of one small orange.  I like to pour these onto your hot griddle with a spouted measuring cup for easy pouring.  You will want to make several small pancakes to represent the pot of gold for Saint. Patrick's Day.  When your pancake starts to bubble that is when it is time to flip and cook on the second side.  My griddle is non stick so I did not need to use any oil or non stick spray but use if needed.

Mix the rest of the batter with 20 drops of green food coloring. If you have a shamrock cookie cutter more power to you.  I did not, so I used a small heart cookie cutter to cut the green pancakes into hearts.  For each shamrock pancake you will need 3 heart shaped pancakes and a small rectangle piece for the stem.  Optional you can add some green M&Ms to the green pancakes (as I did).  If you do add the green M&Ms you will want to drop 2 or 3  into the center of each pancake before you flip it.  That way when you cut them with your heart shaped cookie cutter they stay intact.
 This recipe should make enough to serve 4 people.  I like to serve pancake syrup on the side.  Clover honey on the side would also be a nice touch for Saint. Patrick's Day.
This is a great recipe to let the kids help by using the heart shaped cookie cutters for the Shamrock pancakes.
   I also want to invite you all to hurry and enter my give away for a beautiful 3 piece set of mother, daughter, doll aprons.  Below is the direct link to the give away and here is a pic of the prize.  Good Luck!
