Berry Yummy Pancakes Recipe
This recipe makes use of marshmallows, which are not very common kitchen ingredients. So, if you don't have marshmallows stocked in your pantry, it's perfectly alright to skip using them (along with the pink, sugary dip). The same goes for raspberries. If they're not in season or you just don't want to use them, simply swap them out for raisins, strawberries, or blueberries. It all boils down to what you have in your kitchen right now.
The important thing is breakfast gets eaten and with this dish, your children will gobble up their food in no time - marshmallows or not.

- STep-by-step InSTRuctions
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- A bunch of raspberries
- Pink food coloring
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 25 mins
- In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of white sugar and 2 to 3 drops of pink food coloring. Mix well.
- Wash raspberries and cut tops off. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 tablespoon of white sugar. Using your fingers, create a hole in the center of the mixture and add the egg, melted butter, and pour in milk. Mix well until pancake batter is smooth.
- Heat a frying pan or griddle using medium-low fire. Once oil is hot, pour the pancake batter into the skillet/griddle. You should use approximately 1/4 cup of pancake batter for each pancake. Cook for approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until pancakes are lightly brown.
- Cook 2 1/2 pancakes for each serving. This means you'll need about 3/4 cup of pancake batter in total.
- Remove pancakes from skillet and place one of them on your serving plate.
- Place the remaining pancakes on a cutting board. For the first pancake, cut around the edges to create 2 even, medium-sized circles. These will serve as the ears. Slide them 1/4 way under the pancake that's on your serving dish.
- Next, take a round cookie cutter and cut a small circle into the other pancake. This will form the bear's mouth. Place this near the bottom of the pancake that's on your serving dish.
- Arrange the bear's eyes and nose with 3 raspberries.
- Dip marshmallows halfway into the pink sugar and lay them around the plate, along with the rest of your raspberries.
- Enjoy your berry delicious pancakes!
