Pancakes are better with honey- the Beehive pancake!

beehive pancake

This one is super easy to make, you just have to make some circles and some “C” shapes for the door. Stack ‘em up and you’re done!  Yes, I admit that my bees could use a little work. I was trying to make them really small to match the scale of the beehive but they just turned into blobs. For the brown color I used cocoa powder in the batter, for the yellow I used some stale turmeric spice that we had laying around. Don’t use fresh turmeric because it can affect the flavor a bit.

Of course, you need to eat this pancake with honey, not syrup :)

    You are officially my new favourite person! I came across your website with StumbleUpon. My mom makes bunny pancakes on Easter (which is why it is my favourite holiday) but I never knew you could take pancakes so far!
    Your daughter is also officially the cutest and I wish every guy could be as awesome a dad as you are!

    Saw you on Rachel Ray. LOVED you. LOVED that sweet little girl. LOVED your creations. I had to try them with my little girls and guy. We did Halloween pancakes, and I’m sure we will be doing all sort of creations in the future. I did a shout out to you on my blog today. Thank you!! We had a fun, fabulous time in the kitchen as a family yesterday because of you.

    These are awesome pancakes! I’ve always made animal pancakes for my kids when they were growing up because it was a wonderful memory for me as well. My Dad used to make me bunny pancakes when I was little. Of course none of them were this fancy. What a great memory for your daughter. She will probably carry on the tradition with her children. Thanks for the website. I can’t wait to try making some of these.
