    Recipe Introduction



    Imagine the smile on Mom's face when she sees a happy face pancake looking up at her from the breakfast table!

    List of Ingredients




    Happy Face Pancakes


    * 1 egg
    * 1 cup all-purpose flour
    * 3/4 cup milk
    * 1 tablespoon sugar
    * 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (we prefer canola oil)
    * 3 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * Butter or margarine
    * Gummi Bears or similar candy (for the eyebrows)
    * Dried apricots (for the eyes)
    * Fresh blueberries or M&M's (for the pupils of the eyes)
    * Fresh strawberries, cleaned and topped (for the nose)
    * Whipped cream (for the mouth)
    * Candy sprinkles (for the teeth)

    Recipe




    * Beat egg until fluffy.

    * Beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth.

    * Grease griddle with butter or margarine.

    * Pour about 4 tablespoons batter onto griddle for each large pancake, and about 1 teaspoon of batter for each ear.

    * Cook each pancake until puffed up and dry around edges.

    * Turn and cook other side until golden brown. Remove from griddle.

    * Place a large pancake in the center of a plate.

    * Add small pancakes for the ears.

    * Make the eyebrows with Gummi Bears.

    * Make the eyes with apricots. Add blueberries or M&M's for the pupils.

    * Add a whole strawberry, upside down, for the nose.

    * Form whipped cream into a smiling mouth.

    * Add sprinkles on top of the whipped cream for teeth.

    * Makes approximately 8 very happy pancakes.

    Note: Worried about making from scratch? No worries, just use a store-bought pancake mix, and add the fresh blueberries to the batter before placing on the griddle.
