I made a heart-shaped pancake and coffee as a Valentine’s Day breakfast for Hubby. He said it was the best pancake he’s ever had. I told him it’s the cream cheese and blueberry preserves that made it special!
You can find silly pancake makers that will form a heart for your loved ones’ breakfast, or if you have a big cookie cutter you can do it yourself without the superfluous kitchen gadget. The cookie cutter must be metal and have your oven mit on stand-by. Grease the inside surface of the cutter and heat it up with the pan on medium heat.
I made the batter (Aunt Jemima Buttermilk) rather thick, adding only about 3/4 of the water needed. This would help the batter slowly expand when I poured it into the mold.
Cook as usual and carefully lift your cutter once the edges are done, then flip. You can flip the whole thing, then remove the mold. Your call.
I decorated the pancake with soft plain cream cheese and red gel “Luv”. Warm blueberry preserves were on the side for dipping.
Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
