No matter how you stack it (see what I did there?) these pancakes make for great brunch eating or post party hangover carbs.
- Pancake mix
- Food coloring (electric purple, electric orange, electric green and black)
- Candies or whipped cream
- Cooking spray
Basically you need some pancake batter. If you’re looking for a quick batter grab your favorite box mix. If you’re a purist like me, you like to make a fresh batch of pancake batter. My go to batter recipe is courtesy of Alton Brown.

TIP: FEELING BASIC LIKE ME? ADD VANILLA AND PUMPKIN SPICE TO THE BATTER FOR SOME REAL RAZZLE DAZZLE.
Once you’ve got your batter, separate equally into four bowls. Drop the food coloring into each individual bowl and mix. Add drops till you get the colors you desire.
TIP: Heat your pan up on a low setting. Keep it here! The way you keep these colors CONSISTENT WITH the batter is to cooK them low and slow. Patience is key. The higher the heat, the faster they cook and the colors will change.
Give the pan enough cooking spray to keep the pancake from sticking. I used a 1/3 cup to measure out the pancake batter on the pan. I cooked one at a time. Tedious but it made for perfect pancakes.
When you start to see the pancake bubble up it’s time to flip it and finish cooking it through. Repeat till you have all your pancakes cooked.
I kept mine warm by putting them in a warm oven so they didn’t get cold.
Top with whipped cream, candy, ice cream or whatever you’re feeling. The world is crazy right now so there are no rules!
Don’t forget the syrup or glaze!
