Use your own favorite pancake batter - this is a technique for making fun faces and designs with your pancakes. Sure to get smiles from the kids! (I've included the basic Bisquick pancake recipe - I don't really know how much it makes!)

These were fun to make but very difficult for me. I am not artistic and I could only get the basic 2 eyes and a mouth. My kids say I need to practice and I will get better.


  1. Mix all together until smooth (some lumps will remain, don't over mix).
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot, lightly greased griddle or frying pan; Turn when bubbles appear (a minute or two) and cook for another minute.
  3. The Funny Face Technique:.
  4. Drizzle a small amount of batter from a teaspoon onto the hot griddle or frying pan to make funny eyes, nose and mouth - or any design you'd like (hearts? the alphabet?; When they puff up, pour about 1/4 cup batter over them -right on top, covering your design. Turn when bubbles appear and cook for another minute or so.
  5. When you flip them back over you'll see your design (like freckles on a face)!
