Krusteaz Pancakes Will You Be My Valentine?
Happy Valentine’s Day! I feel like this month’s focus around here has been coming up with anything and everything heart shaped. I have literally been in a cooking frenzy since Feb. 1st! It happens every year. From Feb 1-14th I cook and bake and bake and cook. Of course the family loves it, and so do I.
One of my favorite goto brands is Krusteaz. I love how no matter which box batter you choose the result is always the same- it works. We have tested out so many of the muffins, pancakes and cookies and they all are delicious.
I wanted to make something special for hubby this year on Valentine’s Day, something that says I am thinking about him. So I came up with this lovely little creation. His favorite cookie is a linzer tart. I really did not want to serve him cookies for breakfast so I came up with a linzer tart pancake. Bonus- I used the protein pancakes to get in that extra protein for the day!
The linzer tart pancakes are super easy to make and look and taste absolutely divine! Just whip up two pancakes. Then use a cookie cutter to cut out a heart shape in one of them. Make sure you save that heart so you can put it on the dish later. Grab your favorite jam and spread it over the full pancake. I am planning to do this again with Nutella! Then put the pancake with the cut out on top of the full one.
There you go! Grab some powder sugar and sprinkle it over the entire pancake creation! Place the heart you cut out and place it next to it or on top. It’s such a cute idea and tastes beyond delicious! Bring on the pancakes! Bring on the Krusteaz! Happy Valentine’s Day! Check out more baking and cooking ideas at https://www.krusteaz.com/
