Heart Shaped Pancakes are a fun treat to make for the weekend or any day you want to make breakfast special for your family or someone you love. Regular pancakes are yummy, but it’s so much better eating a heart-shaped one!
Heart Shaped Pancakes
Breakfast can be so much fun, especially on the weekend when you have a little more time to spend putting something together that’s a little extra nice like these Heart Shaped Pancakes.
Maybe someone is celebrating a special birthday or you want to make these pretty pancakes for your wedding anniversary. They’d be even great for Mother’s Day!
I think with a little bit of help the kids can make these with dad and serve them to mom in bed or set a pretty table to surprise mom with pretty heart shaped pancakes, warm syrup and maybe some blueberries or strawberries on top.
And you might even want to try to make heart shaped butter using the fun molds I have in my WOS Kitchen Shop too!
Easy Hack for Making Fun Shaped Pancakes
You don’t need a special pancake mold or tool to make these pancakes either. All you need to make these fun shaped pancakes are metal cookie cutters. Do not use plastic cookie cutters!
I’m sure you know what would happen if you did, so let’s stick with metal cookie cutters, okay?
Any shape will do, but for this recipe and video we used a heart shape. Make sure you check out My Shopping List below for purchasing metal heart shaped cookie cutters
Tips for Making the Pancakes
- You can use a prepacked box of pancake mix or you can use a homemade pancake recipe.
- Make sure you spray the inside of the metal cookie cutter well with non-stick cooking spray before you place it in frying pan and before you add the pancake mix.
- Serve with tons of warm syrup or even homemade strawberry syrup.
