So, this week we re-used out ketchup bottle for pancake mix and now I want to share how to make heart pancakes from a ketchup bottle with you.   (Here is a great healthy pancake recipe) – you make them in a blender!

how to make heart pancakes from a ketchup bottleI washed the bottle and then the kids & I filled the ketchup bottle up with the pancake mix (that was a huge mess because I didn’t have a funnel).  We then used it to make heart pancakes.  We also made other things with it (their names, a funny face that they called “Dad”). heart pancakes made in a blender

Tip:  If you want to add things like names or different things on top of pancake, let it cook a little bit and THEN add more mix on top to make your design.  The new design part will be lighter, so it will look like a real picture. 🙂
I added the chocolate chips after, while it was already on the griddle.
