Lucky Charm Pancakes

Happy St. Patricks Day friends!! Last night I tried being creative and making some green Rice Krispie treats, but for some reason they turned out this ugly brown color, poop brown to be exact. It was a Pinterest fail if I’ve ever seen one.

Well I gave this holiday another shot this morning (I am Irish after all!) and made some festive green pancakes with homemade whipped cream! The lucky charms marshmallows were a perfect touch and added some extra sweetness. stpattyday2

So toss aside your green eggs and ham and try out this recipe! Trust me it’ll be a hit and it’s fail proof 😉

INGREDIENTS

For the Pancake:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pastel green food coloring

For the Whipped Cream:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small bowl combine milk and vinegar. Set aside and let sit for a few minutes.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Whisk together butter, egg and vanilla into the milk mixture. Add the food coloring.
  4. Combine with flour mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. Add butter to pan and pour 1/4 cup batter. Let cook on one side until bubbles begin to pop, then flip to the other side. Cook until barely golden brown.
  6. Place a mixer bowl and whisk in freezer for at least 20 minutes to chill.
  7. Pour heavy whipping cream and sugar into the cold bowl and whisk on high speed until medium to stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. Be sure not to over whisk.
  8. Add as many Lucky Charms marshmallows as desired!
