Easy to make Giraffe Pancake

giraffe-shaped pancake
This guy was pretty easy to make. I just drew the outline and his spots first, then let them cook for a couple minutes. Add a  little yellow batter and boom: Giraffe pancake.

As usual, Allie was supervising my work and giving encouragement. Later on I asked her what other kinds of pancakes she wanted and she decided on Snow White. I tried to sell her on Ariel the little mermaid (since that is way easier to make as a pancake) but she wasn’t having it. Here’s the attempt at Snow White…looks more like Snow White dyed her hair blond and wend to Hawaii for a couple weeks. Whoops. Next time I’ll use some black batter for her hair.

    Seriously. The giraffe is the most awesome thing ever. Also this is a great website, i remember as a kid i’d ask for my mom to make me all kinds of pancakes but always ended up with Mickey Mouse shaped ones lol. Makes me want to try and see what i can make myself though (:

    What Mike said. Doubled. Re-doubled and re-re-doubled. My grandson is in for an unexpected treat next visit.

    Could you possibly rock any harder?

    I don’t think so.

    The neighborhood dads, how can they compete? I love pancakes, giraffes, and what you’re doing, mister.

    I don’t even make regular, simple round pancakes because it takes too much time. You are the king. I am amazed. I saw your giraffe video on boingboing.com and I wanted to point you at this site, in case you are interested. I figure your giraffe would be one of the coolest out of a million! http://www.onemilliongiraffes.com/

    Your daughter is very fortunate to have such a cool dad!
