Maple Mickey Mouse Pancakes

Every morning I eat oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal has such a hearty, neutral taste that I never tire of. The only time I give up my beloved oatmeal, is when I’m on vacation. It’s free play on vacation as far as I’m concerned: croissants, pain au chocolat, pancakes, waffles, the works. The only time I will whip out a big breakfast when I’m at home is on birthdays and when I know I have a long day ahead of me. Yesterday was neither of these mornings. I just felt like eating an indulgent breakfast, and with pancakes as cute as these… you don’t really need an excuse. Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Maple Mickey Mouse Pancakes: adapted from AllRecipes.com

Ingredients:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg 1 ⅛ cups buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Instructions:
- Preheat and lightly grease a large skillet or electric griddle.
- Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add the egg, buttermilk, butter and maple syrup; stir together lightly, but keep it lumpy. The batter should look thick, spongy, and puffy.
- Drop ⅓ cup of the batter onto the cooking surface, spreading lightly with the bottom of the cup. Cook until lightly-browned on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side.


These sunny pancakes will put a smile on your face,
even on the most challenging mornings.

I took this photograph last summer in Disneyworld,
where I, I'm proud to say, ate waffles every morning.
It was heaven.

I love these! I have many of the mickey cooking tools/cookbooks from WDW but I don't recall seeing the pancake molds. I found the sprinkles at a local grocery store. We huge Disney fans =)
