Pancakes, like porridge, are at risk for dullness.

To keep breakfast exciting…

1. Color the pancakes with food dye.

2. Make pumpkin pancakes and serve them in hollow pumpkin shells.


3. Make pancake towers, skewered together for added height.
Then, attach name tags to the skewers to make seating cards.


4. Go gluten-free, just for fun.

(Only find a good recipe first.)


5. Use white decorations -entirely white – to contrast the pancakes.

6. Use as many nicknames as possible (flapjacks, hotcakes, Johnnycakes, silver dollars, etc.) while making and eating the meal. Say anything but ‘pancake’.

7. Cut the pancakes into shapes.

Begin with hearts; eventually progress into giraffes and jellyfish.

8. Include a ridiculous amount of fruit, both in and on top of the pancakes.

Go beyond bananas and blueberries—go for the mangoes.
