Easter Pancakes!

Pancakes for Easter

Hi All!  Yes, Allie and I (and Ryan) are still around, sorry we’ve been gone for a bit. I’ve been working on the pancake book, so most weekends have involved pancake photo shoot and writing so I’ve neglected the blog a bit.  Good news though- we’re back on a regular pancake-making schedule, so you can expect many more creations in the coming weeks.

Anyway, this week we decided to make some Easter pancakes and post them so that you have some ideas to make on Easter morning. This idea came straight from Allie, and at first I wasn’t sure how to pull it off. “A baby chick coming out of an egg in an Easter basket” is a bit of a challenge when you’re working with pancakes :)

After breaking the design into a few parts though, it’s not too bad. First I made the basket, then the egg, then the chick (which is basically just a yellow circle with an orange beak). Get creative and have fun this Easter, and be sure and post your photos to my Facebook page!

Thanks!

    Cute!! You’ve inspired me to give these a shot… Sunday’s the big day- I’ve got to get a pancake shooter [bottle?] thing!

    You make amazing creations!

    Happy Easter! Good to have you back! This is really cute! Like it!

    What about a cross with an Easter lilly? or a hill with a stone rolled away from the dark opening?

    Glad you are back, we’ve missed you. My kids ask regularly if you have posted any new pancakes. My 9 yr-old son is particularly impressed by your skills.

    very cute. i tired making some heart pancakes around valentines day after watching one of your vids. i learned real quick that trying to make wheat pancakes pink probably wasn’t the best idea, ha

    I love your pancake creations and I’m a little jealous ’cause my dad made only fried egg for me when I was little. And I did not even like them because they were glibbery and oversalted… I would have loved such colorful, creative and playful pancakes. So now I know what to do on the next sunday morning!
    Thank you for sharing your ideas and greetings from cologne, Nova

    Glad to see that you’re up and about and making pancakes once again. inspired by your site and by the fact that Spring is here, I’ve made some delicious blueberry and raspberry pancakes served with strawberries :)

    SO excited to have found your site! A few months ago I started “Silly Saturday” pancakes with my daughter where we add fun things to our pancakes for this one “silly” day a week (that way I can easily say “no” to chocolate pancakes on Tuesday – “It’s not Silly Saturday”). I LOVE what you are doing and am going to try some of your tips! These are amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    I just found your site and I’m totally inspired. I cant wait to try making these for my 3yo this weekend. We’re taking him to his first movie (cars2) so I might have to be really ambitious and try to make a car. Thank you for posting all of your wonderful creations
