These pancakes are firm enough to hold like toast and young eaters who don't want to use forks and knives can make pancake rollups. With a little help from a teenager or grown-up, your kids can have fun using their creative flair to make Smiling Baby Cakes with grins.
For the Smiling Baby Cakes:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons salad oil
For the Toasted Pecan Honey Butter:
1/3 cup pecans
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup honey

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, stir together the eggs, milk, and oil. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and mix until smooth. Set aside.

Coat an electric skillet or griddle with cooking spray and preheat to 350 degrees F for 5 minutes. (This is a lower temperature than conventional pancakes use.) Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle for each cake. Cook until the top is bubbly and the cake is dry around the edges. Flip over and cook until golden on the second side.

Serve the cakes warm or at room temperature with the Toasted Pecan Honey Butter.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spread 1/3 cup pecans in a pan, and bake until lightly toasted, 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool and chop finely. In a bowl, beat together 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter and 1/4 cup honey until combined. Stir in the pecans. Serve at room temperature.

Use 1 tablespoon batter to first outline a smile and two dots for eyes on the heated griddle. Once the batter begins to bubble and dry, pour 1/4 cup batter around the eyes and smile and fill in.

So cute!
Declared yummy by the whole family and they loved the smiley face! Made hearts and initials as well. My family thought I was magic. I added cinnamon for flavour and to cut down on the sweetness.
