Heart-Shaped Pumpkin Pancakes

One of the kids’  favourite breakfast’s is pancakes. I thought that would be the perfect meal for Valentine’s Day morning but I wanted to make them a little different and special. So I decided to use pumpkin (my favourite) and make them into little heart-shapes. The kids would gobble them up!

  1. Those look really yummy! I think I will try them on Sunday morning since my son asked me for pancakes today for lunch. LOL! Great blog. I look forward to following along! 🙂

  2. I still haven’t found a heart shaped cookie cutter, but it is on my list. I ADORE adding pumpkin to pancakes! I’m going to experiment with our new waffle maker this weekend. Do you think the pumpkin could affect the time or temperature?
