Heartfelt Pancakes for Valentine`s Day

Serve some heart-shaped pancakes to kick off Valentine’s Day. Pancake batter makes nearly ideal “ink” on a hot griddle.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. sugar (optional)
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 1 tbsp. milk (or buttermilk)
  • 4 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas

Method

  1. Preheat griddle over moderate heat while you mix batter. Sift (with a real sifter, if possible) flour, salt, sugar and baking powder into a bowl. Combine egg, milk, and butter in a separate bowl and slowly stir into dry ingredients. Mix well so lumps won’t gum up the process.
  2. When a drop of cold water will dance on the griddle, begin cooking. To make a “pen,” funnel the batter into a squeeze bottle with a hole in the cap, such as a clean chocolate syrup container. On the griddle, shape the hearts one lobe at a time. They’re really just a V shape, which spreads out into a heart on the griddle. Top with heart-shaped bananas, stawberries and maple syrup. Makes 24 pancakes.
