MOMI SHARES| 4 easy steps to make hotcake art

There are times our Little Man just don’t want to eat anything.  But he would easily be attracted to whip cream, fruit toppings, and marshmallows.  So we top his rice with those kinds.  We also serve him smoothies and pancakes topped with fruit jellies, chocolate syrup, and colorful sprinkles.

Thus, we always make sure to keep our pantry stocked with pancake mix.  Having them would allow us to make fast and flavorful waffles, cupcakes, and pancakes.    Good thing as well that The Maya Kitchen has always been there to provide workshop and recipes.

Recently, The Maya Kitchen puts an imaginative twist to pancakes, bringing art and food together to make incredible Hotcake Art.   Kids and kids-at-heart were taught to turn ordinary hotcake batter into one’s favorite cartoon and cinema icons like Pikachu or Darth Vader. They were also taught how to make fun emojis.  And if you think it is such an effort to do fun Maya Hotcake Art, allow us to share with you four easy steps to adding a creative spin to your pancakes.

Get your batter ready

Prepare your Maya Complete Quick n’ Easy Hotcake Mix by following the instructions on the box. You can also use the Maya Original Fluffy n’ Tasty Hotcake Mix. Stir all your ingredients well to make sure you’ve got the perfect batter to make your hotcake art.

Gather your tools

When making hotcake art, there’s no one right way to do it! You can use a measuring cup to ladle out your batter on the pan and experiment with your pan’s temperature to yield different shades. The longer you cook your batter, the darker those portions will be.

If you have squeeze bottles on hand, those can work like paintbrushes. Use bottles with tips of different sizes to create your characters just the way you want them. Wider nozzles yield broad strokes and outlines, while bottles with a finer tip work best for filling in the details. Mix food coloring into your batter if you’d like to make your hotcake art really pop!

Go crazy on your designs

Here’s the best part: making your hotcake art! Inject as much creativity as you can into your hotcakes but be sure to watch closely for bubbles and flip the pancakes at exactly the right time so they don’t burn.

Garnish your hotcakes

For added flair, feel free to decorate your work with fruits, sprinkles, whipped cream, and other tasty ingredients that’ll make your hotcake art look as good as it tastes.

    There was recently a viral video posted via HGTV of their logo being turned into hotcake art. It’s so darn cool! I wish this had been a “thing” when I was a kid. I enjoy it as an adult now but to experience hotcake art as a child would be even better. Thank you for sharing!
