  • 2 1/4 Cups Flour
  • 4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 10-12 strawberries
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips melted
  • pink food gel coloring


  • Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. 
  • Whisk both eggs then add milk and oil and add all at once to dry ingredients, beating only until moistened.
  • Add, 4 drops of hot pink food coloring to batter. Pour pancake batter into hot, non stick pan, and flip when tiny bubbles start to form in batter. Makes 12-14 pancakes. 
  • Flip pancakes onto cutting board. Cool slightly. Cut 6 circles with a 3" round cookie cutter, set aside.
  • Prepare 10-12 strawberries and take a knife and slice the strawberries. Take the backside of a piping tip to cut small circles and set aside. 
  • Add your melted chocolate into a small piping bag or a sandwich zipper bag with small tip cut off. Assemble pancakes by laying them side by side and then moving every other pancake up an inch or two.
  • Cut a small portion of the round pancake out so that it fits neatly next to the other circle pancakes. Add strawberry circles as polka dots and pipe chocolate legs, antennae, eyes, and smile.
