Valentines Day Pink Strawberry Pancakes Recipe

Valentines Day Pink Strawberry Pancakes Recipe

My goal for this recipe was to use up our strawberries in the fridge. I ended up with a fun and tasty recipe for pink tinted pancakes for Valentine’s Day.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
3/4 cups milk
3/4 cups pureed strawberries (more can be added to achieve desired consistency)
red food coloring if you desire a darker pink

Mix all the ingredients together in one large bowl. This should yield a very light pink mixture. I then divided my batter into three bowls and added a little red food color to each to achieve the shade of pink/red desired.

Spray your skillet with non-stick spray and cook as usual.

Now you have a nice stack of pink strawberry pancakes!

If you are using a mix… simply replaced some of the moisture with the strawberry puree. The pancake mix I have done this with called for both milk and water. I replaced the water with strawberry puree and it was delicious and pink!

    That’s pretty cute. I know what my nephews (who love pancakes) would say: “Throw some chocolate chips in, too!” They love chocolate chip pancakes.

  6. Love it! Your pancakes look amazing! This is a great idea! The best thing is that you are adding the fruit in the pancakes. Delicious!

  7. I love pancakes! These seem so delicious and they look beautiful too.
