Pancakes are usually something we are craving for breakfast because they are so yummy and you can add so many toppings on top such as fresh fruits and nut kinds of butter. But I am such a fan then it comes to how our food looks and of course it makes me even hungrier :D The main idea of this recipe is the marvelous taste of pancakes but why not add some color to your sometimes not that colorful days? It's so funny and satisfying how easily you can make your plate more catchy and attractive ;)

Find the recipe & nutrition facts below :
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar (or any other sweetener of choice)
1 dash of salt
1 1/2 cups soy-milk (or any other plant milk)
1/3 cups vegetable oil (or melted coconut oil)
1 dash of vanilla essence (optional)
For the "ombre" colors:
For blue-purple layer - use blue spirulina/natural food coloring + blueberries or only frozen blueberries(the color will be not that rich it comes much brighter)
For red-ish layer - use beetroot fresh/natural food coloring + strawberries and cherries or only frozen sour cherries(the color will be not that rich it comes much brighter)
For pink-ish layer - use frozen sour cherries and raspberries
*When you are trying to reach the desired color add you coloring slowly(especially if you are using food coloring)! and blend until well mixed. And do not use more than 20 gr. of fruit per each layer as the pancake mixture will come out different and pancakes might be not as fluffy as they should.
Step 1: Preheat your pan on medium heat.
Step 2: In a bowl stir flour and baking powder.
Step 3: Add in sugar and salt, mix until well combined.
Step 4: Place milk, oil, and vanilla and mix it into the dry ingredients until well combined.
Step 5: Separate pancake mixture into 3 different bowls. Place mixture from the first bowl with the frozen fruit and coloring of choice in the blender for the pink-ish layer. Blend until well combined. Place the colored mixture from the blender back into the bowl. Repeat the same procedure for the red-ish and again for the blue-purple layer.
Step 6: Start cooking your pancakes - around 2 tbsp of mixture = 1 fluffy pancake. Cook on medium heat around 2 minutes each side.
