St. Patrick’s Day is on Friday and with all the trending unicorn food on the internet lately, I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and create something equally magical! This six layer rainbow pancake is something you can easily whip up for breakfast… or any time of day because let’s be real, breakfast food is the best. I also wanted to use this holiday as an excuse to incorporate Lucky Charms marshmallows into a recipe because it was my favorite cereal growing up and I was seriously hit with nostalgia when I opened the box this morning! Let me know in the comments below if you would save all the marshmallows for last as a kid too and/or let me know if you decide to recreate this!!!
What You Need
- 1 3/4 Cup of Pancake Batter
- 1 Egg
- 1 Cup or 8 oz of Water
- Food Coloring in all the primary colors (Red, Yellow, Blue, Green)
- Whip Cream
- Multi-colored Sprinkles (I used a combination of stars and dots)
- Lucky Charms Cereal Marshmallows
- Make your pancake batter! I used a store bought box to save time but you can always start from scratch using flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, milk, egg, and butter!
- Once you’ve mixed your batter (it’s okay if there are a few lumps), equally divide it into 6 separate bowls. From there, you will begin carefully dropping some food coloring into each bowl to create every color of the rainbow! I’m sure you already know this but just for quick reference: To create Purple, mix a 1:2 ratio of Red to Blue food coloring. To create Orange, mix a 1:2 ratio of Yellow to Red food coloring.
- Lightly rub some butter or vegetable oil on a non-stick pan and heat on low-medium. Make sure not to go any hotter than this because this will affect the color of the pancake. Once heat is evenly distributed, pour in mixtures into pan one by one. When sides of pancake begin to bubble and pop, it’s time to flip!
- When all six pancakes are complete, assemble them in the following order from top to bottom: Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red.
- Top with whip cream, Lucky Charms marshmallows, and a combination of different sprinkles!
