Heart Shaped Pancakes

You can make regular pancakes and cut them out with a heart cookie cutter, use a squeeze bottle and shape the heart free hand, or use a metal cookie cutter as a mold. Any way you make them these heart shaped pancakes will be a hit with your kids.

Strawberry Pancakes

Add sliced strawberries to your pancake batter to make strawberry pancakes. This didn’t look at cute as I thought it would, but some kids might like them.

What special breakfast are you making on Valentine’s Day?


  1. I’m making my hubby some red velvet pancakes!

  2. Last year I made my husband heart shaped pancakes (cut out with a heart shaped cookie cutter) and topped them with strawberries sliced length wise (so the looked like hearts) and whipped cream 🙂

  3. Laura Beth says:

    Heart-shaped whole-wheat, chocolate chip (hoping the healthy and the unhealthy is a wash) pancakes! 🙂

  4. Pureed the strawberries leftover from last night’s family fondue party and added them to pancake batter- pink pancakes!

  5. I feel like such a dufus- OF COURSE I could have cut my pancakes into heart shapes! I tried to make red velvert heart-shaped pancakes, but the only cookie cutter I had was plastic, so I couldn’t leave it on the griddle long enough. Instead, I tried to “free hand” them into heart shapes and ended up with all sorts of unrecognizeable blobs. It never occurred to me to just make them round and then cut them out. Maybe I’ll remember to do that next year!

  6. I always enjoy making breakfast fun on Valentines. My family will also be getting a special lunch & dinner as well.

  7. We’re making a different version of the Valentine Smoothie: with some waffles. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

  8. I do enjoy the way you have presented this difficulty plus it does offer me some fodder for thought. Nevertheless, coming from everything that I have experienced, I simply hope when the actual opinions pack on that people today continue to be on issue and in no way embark on a tirade of some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this excellent point and even though I do not really agree with the idea in totality, I value the viewpoint.
