Are you having Mardi Gras pancakes? Many churches do a big dinner or fundraiser. Some restaurants offer them for free!
Who doesn’t love pancakes? Add fun and you have really amazing pancakes. Then let the kids make them! Here are some delectable and fun Mardi Gras pancakes that will impress family and guests!
Of course, you need sprinkles: yellow, green, and purple!
And real whipped cream is a must! I added come real vanilla, but for adults, it would be yummy to add a tablespoon of bourbon or brandy.
Tori and Alex love to help in the kitchen. Tori mixed the pancake batter.
Tori and Alex both took turns at the griddle.
They’re not the prettiest, but it’s fun for the kids!
Serve with crispy bacon and sausage!
