St. Patrick’s Day is in a few weeks. One of our favorite traditions is to make pancakes. But not just any pancakes – rainbow pancakes! They don’t take much more effort – only some extra spoons and bowls! They are really easy and kids love them!
Make your favorite pancake mix recipe (you can find my favorite pancake recipe below!) and divide it up into 6 bowls. We use paper bowls just to make clean up easier.
Using food coloring, dye your pancake mix red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. I suggest making small, silver dollar pancakes since you will want to stack them up to form the rainbow!
They look pretty already! Now you can top with your favorite syrup or… since no rainbow would be complete without a big, fluffy cloud add a whip cream.
Rainbow pancakes are always a hit in our house! They are such a fun surprise for the kids to wake up to! In the past we have added drops of flavoring to the different layers or we add chocolate chips inside one of the layers (because there is always chocolate covered coins at the end of the rainbow!)
