Did you get so impressive at making pancakes merely by making a ton of pancakes, or do you make some sort of "real" art too?

I’ve always been an artist of sorts, and my degree is in graphic design. That said, I’m a stronger digital artist than traditional. With the pancakes, I’ve just learned a ton from doing them for the last three+ years that I’ve been at it.

In short, I’m artistic enough to make shaped pancakes, not enough to paint the Mona Lisa. :)

Food coloring could make this very interesting! More so than it already is. Ever thought of it?

Tried it many times. I use an almond-based gluten free pancake mix in my batter because my daughter is gluten free. The batter has a natural brown tiny to it that works against food coloring. The colors come out muddy and blah. I’ve tried lightening up the batter by using only egg whites, no/less vanilla extract, and so on, but ultimately I just quit pursuing it.

For now…

Have you tried an avant garde 3D pancake which you have to assemble to create a sculpture?

Actually, yes. It didn’t go well. I may try again, now that you’ve got me thinking about it…

Your pancake art is really awesome & unique! Where do you find all that time to prepare them? Lol

I usually do it on the Saturday mornings when my kids are with me. It’s our thing.

Do you ever get tired of eating pancakes? Or do your kids? Cause i would.....

My kids don’t seem to. I have. It’s a bit much. But I usually come back after a short break.

I mean, they’re good pancakes. ;)

Looks like Pocahontas is at it again, bringing me a mountain of new followers. I hope you didn’t bring Malaria. :-/

That Pocahontas pancake is easily my most popular, and I’m not sure I’ll ever understand why. Either way, welcome to the blog everyone! Feel free to make requests, but know that I’m sitting on about 130 currently. Each pancake session only yields 6-8 ‘cakes. You can do the math. What I’m saying is that if you make a request, please be patient. I’ll try to get to them all eventually!

I’ll see about finally getting that How-To video up when I hit 10k followers!

Ever use chocolate chips or blueberries for some details?

I’ve tried everything - fruit, chocolate chips, food coloring. Straight up batter always gives me the best results.
