When I saw this Smiley Face pancake pan in the JC Penny catalog last November, I knew that this had to go on my Christmas wish list.
SO I got it. And the first time I made them, it was a disaster. The second time, a disaster (the batter expands and they become impossible to flip) However, I wanted to surprise Ryan with breakfast in bed this morning, so I gave it a third try. I got smarter. I only use about 3T batter for each little pancake. They still weren't perfect, but I'm getting better. Next time I'll reduce the heat a little more (they got a wee scorched on medium) and try to flip them a little later. However, this is the first time we've been able to eat pancakes using this plate, so I considered it a success.
