Blue Pancakes

Hannah loves pancakes, but loves blue pancakes even more! We make regular pancakes and add blue (or red or green) food coloring. (We also color our cream cheese for our bagels!) Hannah thinks it's the best thing and loves picking which color she wants. Any leftover pancakes we store in the freezer and can be toasted later for an easy breakfast.

My mom used to make pancakes in letter shapes for us. The pancakes always tasted better when they spelled my name :)

Here is our favorite pancake recipe.

Ultimate Melt in Your Mouth Pancakes

2 cups Original Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
3-4 drops of food coloring (optional - but very fun)

1. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)

2. Stir all ingredients until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle.

3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden. To keep warm, place in single layer on cookie sheet. Cover with aluminum foil, and place in 200°F oven up to 10 minutes
