Add a bit of magic to your mornings with Chef Shawn Bucher

Getting creative with the most important meal of the day. There are probably many of you who have been doing a lot of cooking lately, as we continue to do our part to stop the spread of coronavirus by staying home. We spoke with Chef Shawn Bucher, via Skype, about how you can take normal pancakes and add some pizazz in the process.

Unicorn pancakes

Blender pancakes

  • 2 C milk
  • 2 TB vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ C sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ C oil
  • 2 C flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Mix in blender with a hand mixer. Make pancakes as normal.

Buttermilk Syrup

  • ½ C butter
  • 1 C sugar
  • ½ C buttermilk
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter, sugar, and buttermilk in saucepan. Add soda and vanilla when blended.

To make the pancakes made for a unicorn, you can add different colors to the pancake batter using food coloring. You can also buy some edible glitter to give that little extra sparkle.
