Famous Mouse Pancakes

No recipe image available.Famous Mouse Pancakes honor a little mouse known and loved the world over. Serve with warmed syrup, favorite jams, melted butter and powdered sugar.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup sliced, hulled and rinsed strawberries

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs, buttermilk, milk, and melted butter. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients all at once, stirring just to blend; the batter should be slightly lumpy.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or heavy skillet over medium-high heat (375°F (190°C) on an electric griddle). Pour enough batter onto the griddle to make a normal-sized pancake (about 1/4 cup); immediately ladle 2 more tiny circles of batter so that they attach themselves to the first pancake to make mouse ears.
  4. When bubbles cover the surface of the pancakes and their undersides are lightly browned, turn them over and cook about 2 minutes more, until the other sides are browned. Before serving, place raisins on each pancake to make the eyes and nose and a strawberry slice for the mouth.

Makes 4 servings.
