Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
4 C. Cake Flour (or all purpose flour)
4 tsp. Baking soda
3 T. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
4 C. buttermilk or (reg. milk if that’s all you have)
4 whole Large Eggs
3 T. Vanilla
5 T. Butter, Melted
1 T. coco powder
Red food coloring
Extra Butter for your fry pan
Maple syrup, Pancake Syrup, homemade jelly or chocolate syrup
What to do:
Mix together well, dry ingredients in large bowl. Mix together milk, eggs, and vanilla in a separate bowl.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring very gently until just combined. Not too much you don’t want a stiff batter.
Melt butter (don’t boil it just melt it) and add it to the batter, stirring gently to combine. Stir in more milk if needed for thinning. Take some of the batter and mix it with the red food coloring, 3 to 4 drops should work for a nice pink color. Then take some more of the batter and mix it with the coco powder for the chocolate color. Put the mix into squeeze bottles or icing squeeze bags. After placing a regular amount of batter to make a pancake, add the colored batter to the top of the uncooked pancake in the heart-filled shape. Cook on a buttered skillet over medium-low heat until golden brown and you see little bubbles, then flip! Cook just a little longer on the second side not as much as the first side. Oh my!!!!!
