Captain America Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 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
  • Blueberries (about 8 for each pancake)
  • Strawberries (about 4 for each pancake, sliced)
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Then, slowly add the butter.
  3. 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.
  4. Heat a griddle to 300 degrees. Spritz with non-stick cooking spray and coat with additional butter prior to adding batter.
  5. Pour about 1 cup batter on the griddle. 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.
  6. To decorate the pancake, use a round cookie or biscuit cutter to remove a circle from the middle.
  7. From the circle that was removed, use a star cookie cutter to cut the star for the middle of the shield.
  8. On a plate, create a layer of sliced strawberries.
  9. Lay the round pancake (with the middle circle removed) over the strawberries.
  10. In the middle of the strawberries, position blueberries in a circle formation.
  11. On top of the blueberries, place the star pancake.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
