Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine’s Day!

I’m excited to share this sweet Valentine’s Day recipe with you!  These pink heart-shaped pancakes are easy to make and taste sooo delicious!!  I seriously ate two while taking these pictures for the blog.  Besides being pink and heart-shaped, these pancakes are also diary-free.  I used Earth Balance’s buttery spread (soy-free) and some Vermont maple syrup (yum!) to top these babies off but feel free to use your own toppings.  This pancake recipe is quick to come together, so whipping up a batch Wednesday morning wouldn’t be much of a worry.  Scroll down for the recipe!

So I wanted to take a minute to talk about this heart shaped thingy that I’m not really sure what to call it.  Someone gifted me two of these things, years ago and I never bothered to give them a try until now.  They are pretty awesome and designed to lay flat on a griddle or frying pan.  It took me a few attempts at getting the hearts to come out perfect but after that it was smooth sailing.

The underside of the pancakes is pinker since it’s the side that spent less time on the griddle

Recipe:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Go slow with the food coloring drops.
  3. Cook on medium-low heat.  Place heart on griddle with a few drops of olive oil before adding a thin layer of pancake mix.
  4. Once bubbles stop bubbling on pancake, you are clear to flip.  Let cook for an additional minute.
  5. Add toppings and enjoy!
