This morning I decided to try something different for breakfast – dinosaur pancakes. They are actually really easy to make if you have a squeeze bottle. I used a squeeze bottle from a BBQ set I had laying around but had never used. Simply prepare the pancake mix according to the directions (I just used a boxed mix) and let it stand for about 3 minutes to thicken it a bit.
It may take a little while to get the shape how you want it to look but even the flops taste delicious!
Start by heating the pan on medium-high. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Fill the squeeze bottle with pancake mixture and shake well to get rid of lumps that could clog the nozzle.
Start by drawing an outline of the shape you want and then go back to fill it in. Once the first side is set, flip it to cook on the other side. Voila! Dinosaur pancakes!
We didn’t stop at dinosaur pancakes this morning though – we carried on to make a volcano with lava. We just followed the same instructions to make a volcano and then surrounded it with strawberry lava.
The next time I make this creation, I’d like to have some kiwis to make grass and trees. Perhaps even an orange for a sun!
