My 3 year old daughter requested strawberry pancakes for this week’s edition of Pancake Wednesday. I wanted to do something a little special with Valentine’s Day coming up so I went to the Google machine to find a recipe. I found a recipe for strawberry chocolate chip pancakes on Justapinch.comand went with it.
Lulu insisted on “helping” and quickly pulled a chair up to the counter as I raced to get the ingredients from the pantry before she dumped the two pound bag of flour on the dog. She mixed the chocolate chips and flour together while I searched for eggs.
Crap. No eggs.
I improvised and used a 1/4 cup of applesauce in place of the eggs. I also added a tablespoon of vanilla and two tablespoons of melted butter to the Justapinch.com recipe. The pancakes were delicious and pink, which made them a big hit with both kids. These are a fast and easy Valentine’s Day treat for your little ones
