Nothing’s better than waking up to the smell of freshly made sweet, buttery pancakes and having your loved one bring those delicious pieces drizzled in hot maple syrup right to you in bed. If you’re looking to show your bursting love for your partner and surprise them with breakfast in bed, we have a trick for you that will certainly show your partner your oozing love for them, literally!
Decoration hack: pancakes that ooze love
Ingredients needed (serves two)
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 pancakes (about 12cm in diameter)
- Strawberry jam
- Icing sugar
- Whipped cream
- Heart-shaped cookie cutter
Step 1: Once you’ve made your pancakes, hollow out the centre of one pancake with a heart-shaped cookie cutter.
Step 2: Place this hollowed-out pancake on another piece of pancake and sprinkle some icing sugar.
Step 3: Take some strawberry jam with a spoon and place it in the hollowed heart.
Step 4: Decorate the plate with fresh strawberries and whipped cream and you’ve got yourself a breakfast that oozes love once you cut into it!
If you don’t want to use strawberry jam, you can also replace it with the traditional maple syrup or even chocolate syrup. It’s entirely up to you and your partner’s preference.
This would be a fun activity to do with your kids as well! And if you’re looking to do so, we’d recommend getting cookie cutters in different shapes so that they can let their creativity flow as they decorate the pancakes as they please.
