I’ve been keeping this recipe in mind for St. Patrick’s Day. Since my husband isn’t eating meat on Fridays, I decided that yesterday was the day to make this colorful treat! These turned out awesome and I will most definitely make them again.
I used the allrecipes “Good Old Fashioned Pancakes” recipe. This was the recipe suggested in the post. I considered using my good ole box of Bisquick, but when I looked up the recipe and saw it’s 4.5 star rating with almost 5,000 reviews, I decided to give the recipe a try! I have to say that these were the best pancakes I’ve ever made. I considered tossing out my huge box of Bisquick and converting 100% to this recipe! You really should try it!
I doubled the batter and divided it into 5 cereal bowl. I colored the batter red, orange, yellow, green and blue! I used the McCormick Food Color & Egg Dye. You will use lots of dye, so go ahead and squeeze it in instead of drop it in! I saved some of the batter (did not color it) so that I could taste the recipe without the influence of the coloring. The recipe made 4-5 of each color. I could have got a bit more out of the batter if I scrapped out the bowls, but I knew my family wouldn’t eat all of it anyway! I kept the cooked pancakes warn in a preheated oven while I finished cooking the remaining colors.
My girls were really excited to eat this special dinner! My husband really enjoyed them too! The best part of all this was discovering a new amazing pancake recipe. Although the recipe is from scratch, it really only takes 5 minutes to prepare! Bye-bye Bisquick!
Time: 5 minutes to mix the batter, 5 minutes to color the batter, and 15 minutes to cook the pancakes.
Substitutions: I used McCormick Food & Egg Coloring instead of Wilton coloring.
