How do I create colored pancakes?

Coloring pancakes is very easy! A simple drop or two of gel food coloring easily creates colored pancakes. Drop it in the middle and stir until fully incorporated.

Tips for coloring pancakes

A lot of complex recipes will encourage making several batches of batter to create rainbow pancakes. But I’d recommend making one large batch first and then dividing it. A simple drop of food coloring in each divided bowl makes creating colored pancakes much easier and less time-consuming!
