One of our favorite places to visit has to be Disney World! My children look forward to our vacations there, so we try to plan for a trip every two years. Since we last visited in 2013, I have a feeling a trip will be planned soon… Very soon!
I like to prepare for an upcoming Disney World trip by showing my #DisneySide any way I can. One of my favorite ways is with a Disney themed breakfast!
My cousin just showed us how to make these incredible Disney inspired pancakes, which I know any child (or adult) would love – whether you are planning a trip to the Happiest Place On Earth or not! I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up to Mickey Mouse or Magic Kingdom in their plate? They are super fun and I know I would take these every day!
You will need the following:
- Griddle or large skillet
- Pam Cooking Spray
- Large mixing bowl
- Pancake Mix (I like Bisquick, then just add water)
- Two Condiment Squirt Bottles (these can be found at Walmart or the dollar store)
In your large bowl, mix the pancake mix and water. Try not to mix too much because it can thicken as it stands. Look at the consistency of the batter… You want your batter to be thick enough to draw with, but not too thick that it won’t squeeze out of the squirt bottle. If your batter is lumpy, take out your electric mixer and mix until well blended. Those lumps will clog the squirt bottle. Trust me or the top will come flying off with the pressure! Pour the batter slowly into one of the condiment squirt bottles, but don’t fill it all the way to the top.
*This is a good time to find the object you want to draw. Pull it up on your phone or tablet so you can reference as you go.
Spray your griddle or skillet with cooking spray. Heat your griddle on low, then start to outline your object. Keep in mind the darker lines in the finish product will be the lines that cook longer or go on first.
When this first outline has puffed up, add the second layer. For some pictures, this will just be a fill-in.
As this starts to bubble and puff up you will know when your pancakes are ready to be flipped, so do so carefully. Let the other side cook until light brown before removing from the griddle.
Get ready for your next object, but make sure you spray the pan between pancakes to avoid sticking.
Get even more creative with a princess wand or crown. You could even divide up the batter into two different squirt bottles and add food coloring to the mix for details!
