Earth Day Pancakes

(Earth Day is April 22nd)

This is a guest blog post written by Renae C.

 

Homeschool fun – start your kids off right for Earth Day by making Earth Day pancakes. Yes, that’s right – pancakes in the shape of the planet Earth!

THE RECIPE

Simply take your favorite pancake mix (I like Krusteaz) and follow the directions. Next, separate 2/3 of the mix into one bowl, and 1/3 of the mix in another. In the larger bowl add blue food coloring.  Add green food coloring to the smaller bowl.

You will want a piping bag, or if you don’t have one on hand (I didn’t), then you can make a temporary one yourself. You will need some wax paper, which you should fold in half, and roll it into a cone. Tape the sides and you’re done.

Now that you have mixed your batter and you have your piping bag, you will need to load the green batter into the bag. Then pour the blue batter onto your greased skillet, making sure it makes more of a circular shape than an oval one. Next, take your piping bag and pipe green batter in the shape of the continents (or as close as you can manage).

Finish the pancakes the way that you regularly would. I made my pancakes in advance, so all I will have to do in the morning is pull them out, heat them up, and serve.
