About Blue Pancakes
It is a type of sweet pancake. You can serve it for breakfast, brunch or as a dessert.
This recipe is very easy to make and you don’t need any special equipment. It’s time-consuming, but the result is worth it! The ingredients are not expensive and you can use them for other recipes as well.
They are best served with maple syrup or chocolate sauce. If you want to make this recipe even more interesting, add some berries on top of each pancake before serving it.
So what do you need to know about a this pancake? Here are our top tips:
- The batter should be thick and smooth—if it’s too runny, it won’t hold its shape when you cook it on a plate.
- Make sure your plate is greased or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray before putting the batter on it—otherwise, it might stick!
- The plate should not be covered while cooking—leave it open so that steam can escape, which will keep the pancake from becoming soggy or overcooked in spots.
- If you want to add toppings like strawberries or chocolate chips, make sure they’re small enough that they won’t fall off when you flip over the pancake after cooking (about 1/2″ square).
What You Need:
- Vanilla extract
- Melted butter
- Baking Powder
How to Prepare
These pancakes are a fun way to get your kids interested in food! It’s a great way to make them happy and teach them that they can try new foods. Here’s how to make them:
Start with a pancake mix and blue food coloring (blueberries).
You’ll want to add double the amount of dry ingredients as wet and then mix it with a whisk. Once you’ve mixed it well, add the wet ingredients and mix again until there are no clumps. Make sure to use cold water for the best results!
Once you have your batter ready, heat your griddle or skillet over medium-high heat until it’s hot enough that water droplets dance around on its surface when splashed onto it (if you don’t have one of those heat testers, wait until it starts smoking).
Pour some batter onto the pan—it should sizzle immediately when it hits the metal—and use an offset spatula (or something similar) to spread it into an even layer across the bottom of the pan. Let it cook for about 2 minutes before flipping over; this will give you nice crispy edges on both sides of your pancake! If you’re having trouble flipping them over without breaking them apart, try using two spatulas instead of
I don’t know why these pancakes are fascinating to people, but they sure are. I’ve seen plenty of explanations trying to delve into the science behind blue pancakes, but I’ll be frank: I don’t care why they turn blue. It’s great that it does when you add vinegar and baking soda together, but something about the color blue turns my mind off and makes me happy.
