The other day I decided to make rainbow pancakes. I can’t say what possessed me to do such a thing, but I’d seen it before and I thought Jack might enjoy it. Plus, he was asking me for blue pancakes, which I thought was weird and would look gross, so I turned it into a rainbow of pancakes. He loved it, and it didn’t take much effort to make them.
It wasn’t hard to dollop out my batter into 5 small bowls, then add about 5 drops of food coloring to each. The orange was the only one I had to mix. I think it’s a 2-3 ratio of yellow to red. Or a “mix until you like the color” ratio.
I have to admit, it was kind of freaky seeing colored pancakes cooking on the griddle. Fun, but freaky.
In the end, I was impressed with how colorful they turned out. I really enjoyed making these, and I see them happening in my future. Not often of course, but I’ll do this again for a rare treat I’m sure.
Have you ever tried Rainbow pancakes? They will start your day off with a smile.
