Pancakes by Gwenthyr Pancakes by Gwenthyr
The thing is that my mind can't stop producing ideas, most of the time very silly ones. And one day I just thought something like "Hey, so much space on pancakes unused and I have food colors..." :XD:
Since that day, we rarely have pancakes without pictures. I usually make three different colors and play with it but these were just to eat quickly and I just had a camera borrowed, so I thought I will show you how much of a child I am :XD:

The pictures are very simple, because it's hard to make something complicated and don't burn it :D Of course if I lowered the heat then it would be possible, but then it would take hours before we get to eat it :XD:

Media: uh... flour, milk, an egg, oil and lots of blue food color :dance:

:iconcommentplz: <- please

I can't even flip pancakes properly......

Which, if I had had enough flour, I would have made them tomorrow before school with this impetus, misshapen as they are. Mmmm. Buttermilk pancakes, thick and lovely.

These pancakes look a bit crepe-like to me, but I know that can't be the case. Crepes would cook WAY too quickly for making patterns on them with food dye! And I can't figure out for the life of me how you did this, either, or why some of them look like they have two layers.

Well, I am not a master of flipping either :XD: But most of them end up not wrinkled ;)

Until now, I wasn't aware that there are more types of pancakes, but yes, these are more like crepe than pancakes if I have read correctly the definition. I often take care to make them as thin as possible but these are a bit thicker. The way I did this is very simple. I make two doughs, one colored (I typically do more colors, but I wanted to eat quickly that time) then put the basic dough on the pan, fry it just a little, flip it and draw simple enough picture on the slightly fried side, then flip it again so the colored side fries to the extent I want and that's it. So they basically have sort of two layers. And it cooks quickly, yes, but not that much and you can lower the heat to have more time.

Also thank you for the :+fav: :aww:
