Brunch Essentials

Hosting a brunch and looking to add a little flair to the festivities? Why not try pancakes that are the same colour as your décor?!

What you’ll need:

  • Pancake mix
  • A few bowls (depending on how many colours you’re making)
  • Food colouring
  • A spatula
  • A non-stick pan or griddle
  • Creativity


Simply the instructions on your pancake mix and then place your batter into separate bowls. When it comes to food colouring, a little goes a long way, so start with a small amount and slowly increase the drops until you reach your desired colour.

All that’s left to do now is cook them, again following your pancake mix instructions. Remember not to leave them cooking for too long or they’ll get brown and you’ll lose some of your fun colouring. Serve immediately.

Fun tips:

Make your pancakes in different shapes and designs. Try everyone’s initials, hearts, or stars. Guaranteed you and your friends will have a hilarious time trying to guess what’s what.

Take your pancakes to the next level by turning them into waffles! Instead of dropping the batter into your non-stick pan or griddle, fire up a waffle iron. You can even pour in different coloured batters for a fun tie-dye affair.
