Gwendolyn is ALL about unicorns right now – we did have a Unicorn themed birthday party for her a couple months ago. This is such a fun breakfast – it might be on the sugary side; however, for a special treat I think it would be tons of fun!
- For pancakes:
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cups milk
- ¼ cup (½ stick) butter, melted but cooled slightly
- For unicorn:
- Whipped topping
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Blueberries (2 for each unicorn)
- Sugar cone (1 for each unicorn)
- Cooked bacon (1 slice for each unicorn)
- M&Ms (2 for each unicorn)
- In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Then, slowly add the butter.
- Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the well and stir the batter until combined. There may be small lumps. Allow the batter to rest at least 5 minutes.
- Heat a griddle to 300 degrees. Spritz with non-stick cooking spray for coat with additional butter prior to adding batter.
- For the unicorn, pour about 1 cup batter on the griddle. For the snout, use about ½ to ⅔ cup batter. When bubbles begin to break on the surface of the pancakes, flip and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until completely cooked through.
- To decorate the unicorn, place the face pancake on a large plate. Put the smaller pancake towards the bottom of the larger pancake.
- For the snout of the unicorn, place two small slits and then shoved one M&M sideways into each hole.
- Position the eyes above the snout.
- Cut bacon in half (perhaps three pieces depending on the length) and place two pieces of bacon as the unicorn ears.
- When ready to serve, use whipped topping to create a mane. Sprinkle lightly with rainbow sprinkles. Top with a sugar cone as the unicorn horn. Serve immediately.
