Preparation

  1. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  2. In medium bowl, beat Bisquick™ mix, milk and eggs with whisk until mixed well. Tint with food color.
  3. Brush griddle with vegetable oil or shortening. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until puffed and bubbles begin to form on top. Turn; cook other side until golden brown. Remove from griddle to serving plate. Repeat with remaining batter. If not eating immediately, remove pancakes to cooling rack. Keep warm in 200°F oven.
  4. Serve with toppings.

Tips

  • Topping pancakes with Lucky Charms™ marshmallows makes breakfast time more colorful and fun for kids of all ages. Pour box of cereal onto a large tray. Pick out all the marshmallows (about 2 cups) for a topping; reserve remaining cereal for another use.
  • Create your own rainbow fruit-stacked Lucky Charms™ pancake. To assemble, have a 1/4 cup each of chopped strawberries, mandarin orange segments, chopped kiwifruit, pineapple, halved blackberries, and blueberries. Place 1 pancake in center of large plate, spread or pipe whipped cream on top, then place strawberries and mandarin oranges on top; top with next pancake, and repeat with more whipped cream and the next fruits. Repeat until all the fruit has been used. Top with additional whipped cream, marshmallows and sprinkles.
  • Don't flip 'em more than once! Repeated cooking on both sides toughens rather than browns the pancakes.
  • To test the griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If the bubbles jump around, the heat is just right to start cooking the pancakes.
