Harry Potter Pancakes!

My husband has been away for work and when he's gone the boys and I enjoy simple meals.  We try to keep extra busy and with summer here that is so easy to do!  We're usually pretty wiped out by dinner time and easy meals are the way to go.

One night last week the boys asked for pancakes with sprinkles.

I found these fun stars and moon sprinkles in our pantry and knew the boys would love them!  I decided to call them Harry Potter pancakes for the extra squeals I knew that would entail and sprinkled in some white chocolate chips as "full moons" too.

They were yummy and my boys just loved the extra additions (and the name!).  We spent dinner discussing Harry Potter, spells, astronomy terms, and who we'd turn into if we could use polyjuice potion.

We took our favorite pancake recipe and rather than mix the sprinkles and chocolate chips into the batter I just sprinkled them on top while baking.  That way we could really see the stars and moons!

We always make a huge batch of pancakes and freeze any leftovers; though lately I'm thinking in order to have leftovers we might might need to start making larger batches!

Here's the recipe:

2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 cup milk
2 TBSP white vinegar
2 TBSP sugar
4 TBSP vegetable oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Stars and Moon Sprinkles
White chocolate chips

  • Beat egg in large bowl until fluffy.  Add white vinegar to the milk and let sit for a few minutes.
  • Add flour to the egg and slowly pour in the sour milk.  Beat in all remaining ingredients until smooth.  
  • Heat griddle or skillet and grease with vegetable oil or butter.  To test griddle sprinkle it with some water.  When the water bubbles and jumps around the heat is just right.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measure pour pancake batter onto griddle.  Sprinkle with stars and moons and white chocolate chips.  When pancake is puffy around the edges and holes appear on the backside; flip pancake over.  Continue cooking until golden brown. 

They were so yummy!

They were such a hit too that I think we need to start making a few other Harry Potter recipes like these delicious looking Butterbeer Cupcakes by Kippers and Curtains.  

Do you have a favorite Harry Potter themed recipe?
