How is your Valentine’s Day so far? Me, it started sweet, with me waking up with a huge Toblerone on my working table and a sweet note from my Valentino.
I did not buy anything for him but I thought cooking breakfast made with some more effort and then some sweet whisper of a night to look forward to, will be irresistible for him.
I made some heart shaped pancakes and a heart shaped egg using an P88 peso heartshaped pan from Japan Homes. Cooking pancakes is a no-brainer but cooking them in a tiny sheet-thin pan needs some wit. I thought to write some quick tips for you who would wish to try making some of these heart shaped pancakes at home.
- Cook in very low heat. Pancakes need some patience or else they will quickly burn.
- Butter melts and burns quickly so if you’ll grease your pan using butter, make sure that are quick to flip out the pancakes as soon as they are cooked.
- It will only take 1-2 tablespoon hotcake mixture to fill up the mold.
- If you will be using the same mold I used, the P88 pan, you can’t put it directly over a fire. It can easily scorch your pan. What you will do same like I did is use a flat pan like the one I got from Masflex. The flat pan will heat your small heartshaped pan just enough to cook the hotcake.
1. Grease your pan with a tiny amount of butter.
2. Pour 1-2 tablespoons of hotcake batter.
3. When small bubbles start to form on your hotcake, flip it and cook the other side of the hotcake on the flat pan instead.
- You can use other molds if you have them. I found some other cute-looking hotcake molds available in the market.
- For the toppings, you can use your favorite hotcake syrup and butter, chocolate syrup, or you can choose to serve fruits or just sprinkle white powdered sugar.
