There is no better way to write “I love you” than with pancake batter!
Do you own a pancake pen? Well, you should. You can be a kitchen skillet artist for less than $10, and that includes the pancake batter.
Once in awhile, I just have to make “cutesy food.” And on Valentine’s Day – it’s mandatory for me.
Some wise person once said “Honey comes from bees, and apples come from trees, but pancakes come from heaven.” Pancakes are so warm and comforting and the perfect way to start your Valentine’s Day, I say.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole grain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
1 1 /4 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Whisk dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together until combined. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Set mix aside to rest for 10 minutes. Use your pancake pen to create shapes in a buttered skillet that is medium heat. Cook for about one minute, or until holes appear in batter on first side, then flip and cook another 30 seconds on other side.
