These Ombre Pancakes make a fun and beautiful stack of pancakes for a special morning treat. Not only are they a beautiful display, they taste yummy too! These are super easy and uses box pancake mix as well as food coloring in three different coordinating shades. You can also use a quality food coloring that can be used at different strengths. We suggest using Wilton Food Coloring for best quality.
Tip: Mix all of your colors before cooking any pancakes. Cook all of the batter from the first bowl before moving on to the other colors. We used a slightly slower heat and did not use butter or oil for obtain the prefect coloring that didn’t brown. The pancakes were still tasty-and you can add the butter when eating.

- Prepare the pancake batter as directed then split into three (or however many different colors you would like) even parts. Start by mixing in just a little bit of food coloring into one of the bowls to see the strength of the color. Judge from there if you want to add more or less to determine if this will be your light, medium or dark batter. Do the same for the additional bowls of batter. Follow package instructions for cooking the pancakes the way you normally would. Try for uniform sizes when making them, using an ice cream scooper will help with this. Stack up and enjoy the love!
