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:

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:

Cool, thanks for the detailed info of how you did it. I'll have to keep it in mind as something to try someday. :-)

Ironically, crepes are much easier for me to handle than pancakes for some odd reason, so it evens out. I think it's because I can actually tell when they're done and I don't have to worry about them flopping into its neighbor on the pan. >.<

I love the idea and spirit of this! It's so playful and sweet and you can eat it, too!
I think we should incorporate art and beautiful things and silliness into our daily lives more... (or at least that's something I want to do :dance:)
My favs are the snail and the night sky!

God, you are hard to please :XD:
But it gives me crazier and crazier ideas... like multicolored rosoto or steaks with pictures... or picture made of colored steaks...
Oh god I am sooo hungry! O_O

Nah, it's just that I have two allergies that I have to avoid - milk and eggs ;)
Although neither of them are real allergies anymore, I don't like milk or eggs, so I tend to just... not eat them :XD:

The steak sounds lovely though :drool:

Well... I already did pancakes for one friend of mine who has alergy to flour and milk - that was really interesting challenge ;) But it was tasty at the end :dance:

We'll see what will come up in my kitchen :XD:

But it's good of it's tasty :D
So far I haven't managed to eat pancakes that tastes nice without milk >_>

I guess we will ;)

That's a very clever idea. And it's not that childish. I still play with my food sometimes :D
