Pretty Valentine Pancakes

These pancakes just kind of happened. I was making 3 batches of pumpkin pancakes because my kiddos have been begging me and 1/2 way through I thought I'd experiment for Valentines Day.  So, I stuck them in the freezer and they're all ready to go. I just stick them in the fridge the night before, then put them in the rice cooker on warm an hour before breakfast and it's less to do before rushing them off to school. :) It's pretty simple, but I took pics of the steps as I went. Use whatever pancake recipe you like and go for it!
Step 1. Separate some of the batter and add food coloring of choice to the batter bowl with less batter.                                                                
Step 2.  Use a measuring cup or something with a  pour spout and make a V shape, until it's full and looks like a heart.

Step 3. Cook on a griddle at about 325 degrees, don't flip the heart. Wait till it is bubbly and not runny on top, then pour the regular batter directly over the heart and form a circle.

Step 4. When the edges are bubbly flip and surprise the cute heart is in the middle! 

 Now your pretty pancakes are ready to eat! Enjoy!
