Heart-shaped Pancakes for Valentine’s Day

Get out your pretty china—the kids will feel the love—then sprinkle the pancakes with powdered sugar and add a dollop of raspberry jam.

We like to start out holidays by celebrating at breakfast, so on Valentine’s Day I make the kids heart-shaped pancakes. It means getting up a little earlier, but it’s something they look forward to. This year I might just make them the night before, and then microwave them in the morning. I don’t think they’ll suffer too much, and it will mean an extra 30 minutes of sleep for the cook!

  1. Awww! Those are so cute!

    At our house, I use the big heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the center of a piece of bread, and then I fry the bread with an egg in the hole. (One of my kids loves ketchup on her sunset eggs, so I take the one that comes out looking the least heart-shaped and outline it in ketchup.)

    Of course, this is all far more likely to happen at dinner time than breakfast, unless Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend… I’m impressed by anyone who does weekday pancakes.
